Very nice Alan!  How do you like the Elecraft Tuner and Linear?  
I've updated my own recently as well.

Thanks! Great looking shack. Very impressive mic. I have found the Elecraft combo to be excellent.

Fine Workmanship and great interactive performance. Once the tuner is "taught" the bands, a very

fast and easy process, one can go from one band and antenna to another, just bring up the new

frequency on the Flex and hit tune and the Linear senses the frequency and goes right to the band.

The tuner automatically recalls the settings including antenna and you are transmitting in less than thirty seconds.

I have a transmit profile I use for the set up which I choose when using the linear. The tuner in the Flex is bypassed when using this setup. First class all the way! Enjoy the shack. Nice meeting you on the group. Alan, N4BV

Great station Alan.  I've been using the KPA/KAT500s with my Flex 6000 for over a year and a half.  Love the combination - Especially now that I've discovered DDUtil.   If you haven't tried DDUtil, I highly recommend you do.

I also noticed your using a PR-40 microphone.  That is the same thing I'm using.  Would you mind sharing your EQ settings you've come up with for the PR-40?   I've noticed while running 2m either FM or SSB, my 6700 requires a totally different TX EQ than it does while on the HF bands.  I have no clue why this is though.

Thanks. The Mic I am using is the Heil 788. I have not tried DDUtil yet, but I will have to familiarize myself with it. Alan, N4BV
