A GUY WAS ON OUR NET WHICH HAS 5 Flexes on it and was bashing the radio because of the ARRL review showing a -119 dbm MDS on 80 meters, saying it does not hear well on that band due to no preamp available. My noise floor on 80 is 115 dbm due to static which makes it a moot point for me. I understand the reason being to avoid broadcast station interference. I would appreciate some discussion on this point from the community and Flex engineering. I would like to have an intelligent answer for this guy. He is very anti SDR so I want to have the a very well informed come back to him. Also what do you see as a noise Floor at your QTH on 80M? meters?
