Hello Ak4ZJR,


2nd production run of Power Genius XL is expected to appear in FlexRadio in May 2018.

We expect to ship Tuner Genius with them at the same time. If something comes up they may be delayed but it will surely be a similar time frame.

 Looking ahead on Power Genius and Tuner Genius. Flex Radio Systems say they will start shipping the new 6400 / 6600 series radios in February 2018. Shipments of the 1st production run Power Genius XL amplifiers to customers will come after February.  For those with orders in the 2nd production run is 4O3A now building second production amplifiers?  When in 2018 is the 2nd production run likely to ship to Flex? Will the Tuner Genius (antenna tuners) for 2017 orders of Power Genius ship with the 2nd production? If not is there a forecast on tuner production? Any information appreciated.

WB4IVF thanks for posting.  Any news is better than nothing, although it sure would be nice to know the definition of what production run means (as in quantities).  Having submitted a late order (12-2017)  this leaves me wondering whether I'll see my PG-XL in 2018? 19? 20?

If one were to buy a Tuner Genious, how much would it cost?

It would be interesting to know how many production runs it will take to fulfill the PG-XL pre-orders (orders taken up through Dec 31, 2017).

Would be nice to see some pictures of the production Tuner Genious. If Flex/403A are close to shipping both, then there should be some pictures available for the tuner. Flex has an official brochure that shows real pictures of the PG. XL.

Pat,  I believe they have an "Official" one on the PGXL Link.  At least it matches what they had at the Orlando Hamfest last month.
