My Ameritron 811 (one year old ) passed away today after working with my new flex 6300.....cause: unknow....reason why I`m began a search for a new one (don`t need more than 1K). I`ve been think in Acom 1010 & 1000; but after Ameritron I feel afraid of tubes and my flex...reason why I look to Acom 600S. Anyone knows if its easy to connect flex6300 and Acom 600s?

I use an Elecraft KPA500 and matching KAT500 tuner with my 6300 and they work fine.  It is the 2nd picture on my QRZ page: http://www.qrz.com/lookup/kq1q

@Joe, that is precisely my environment with my 6500.
We share very similar interests, I got emComm certified via the ARRL courses, and hold a commercial multi-engine license. I am very impressed with the 3D storm images...really nice!

I sold my Honda 350 to a cop in Reston, VA in 1979. I think that was the last time I was on one. However, it wasn't the last time I thought about buying another.

Many hams are social pariahs but it looks like this one has his act together! Wonder if a hair transplant and new chopper would help me?
