I'm only 90 mins away from there.  Maybe I can swing by and convince them I am VE5KC.

Hi Andrew..

Too late it's already picked up and in the Post Office shipping system, just got the email from Canada Post. hi..

Radio world had none available for sale, at this time..  All their first shipment of 6400/6600 radios was pre-sold months ago, similar to direct from Flex.

Thanks Ken, again is it a straight 6400 or the M model. I just received my shipping notice today 3/1/18 and I have a 6400M and the last four digits of mine are 0343. My best guess is they have shipped more non M model both 6600 and 6400 than the M

It's a straight 6400.. 

I ordered a 6400M but changed my order to the none M model shortly after. I decided that I really didn't want a dedicated computer I can not directly manage ,built into the radio. With many years of experience with computers, in addition to having my computer smart son living in my suite near by, I'm all set to manage my own computers, something not so easy with the dedicated built in tablet.

When I'm in the ham shack, I'm right next to my i5 computer with a 27in monitor.  I see little benefit in a M model for me.

Hum well whatever the M isn't a dedicated computer you can't manage. It gives you everything a non M does plus the ability to use it as a stand alone radio if desired. Each their own I look forward to plugging my radio into my network here plus using it remotely anywhere in the world.

I received my 6400 on Friday (Ottawa). SW installed, updated and radio working in a few minutes!  Once I get my tuner I will be on the air.

Radioworld showed a 6400M in stock on Friday - could have been an error.

Over a week ago, Radioworld showed a 6600M in stock. I asked them about it and was told their inventory system required them to move their display radio into stock before making it unavailable again - I just happened to query the web page while it was listed as "In stock" :-( Sure enough, next time I checked, the 6600M showed as "Unavailable" instead of "In stock".
