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.
