Well I've gone and done it again. Just put my order in for a new 6500 last week when they were on sale. Also have the Maestro on order. Had a 6300 back when they first came out. Didn't care for it due to NB issues. Hope this is the last radio I buy. Sold my TS-990 and  replacing it with the 6500. Going to use it in the RV too. Have the 6500 set up in the AV cabinet with the Maestro set up by my recliner.

Hopefully the new NB will work on your noise. There have been many posts by people that found it not to be a huge improvement. NB aside, I still really like my 6500.

I too recently bought the 6500.  I had a 6300 for 25 days then upgraded.  Not sure I needed the 6500 features but could not turn down the deal.

I have my 6500 mounted about 15 feet away from my op location (my desk).  When maestro gets here I'm not sure yet how I'll use it but it will be nice little experiment.  

I am enjoying using my laptop upstairs and being able to run SmartSDR and do just about everything on the unit downstairs.

Congrats on your 6500 order.  Since I received my Flex a few weeks ago my ICOM 7800 has been collecting dust.  I'm looking forward to adding the Maestro.
