Sorry, no. I've heard there is a net that meets regularly, but I haven't had a chance to check in and meet some of the other owners.
I enjoy the heck out of my 6500. Uh, correction, my two teenage boys (W0LSB & NU1A) get most of the enjoyment, I spend more time correcting for software flakiness. I've been pulling the factory-reset cord quite a bit, lately. Just last night had to completely reinstall SSDR to get Tx back up. DAX completely blocked Tx audio for no apparent reason. I have high hopes for ver 1.4 where direct PC audio is supported (rather than using DAX).
After ver 2.0 becomes available, maybe Flex-sales would entertain the thought of allowing serious potential customers the shot at remoting into a house-system as a way to hook new customers. I don't know, but it may be worth asking at that time.
Afraid you'll need that HAM ticket first, though.
