Can't quite figure out what those green circle areas are on the front panel. Am I looking through vent holes and seeing something green inside or what? Pictures are not clear. Thanks.

I believe you are referring the reflections of the LEDs on the grate inside the amp. In Orlando, they were set to change to red when the amp was keyed.

Good idea Dan.  But I'll have to be careful not to make her too suspicious.  (-:

Flux Capacitor!  Cool!!  What happens when you drive the amp with 88 watts?

At 88 gigawatts, a tear in the space-time continuum occurs where you work all DXCC entities, on all bands, using all modes simultaneously and receive both paper QSLs and EQSLs instantaneously.  The wallpaper from the ARRL still takes months to get to you though.

Resistance is exponentially less if you add a bathroom renovation coefficient into the equation.

It's groovy disco lights to dance to the beat :)

Actually it's just a led status indicator that glows inside the amp to show status. Green - rx, red - tx, amber - updating

The unit that was shown at Dayton was changed quite a bit from the one that was shown at Orlando.  The chassis was an enclosed unit and the LED was a much larger one.  In fact SDR spoke aobut he much more "solid" housing.  So, not sure if we will see the "Dancing LED"s" or just the indications on the Larger LED Panel on the front panel.

Hi Keith, I thought you meant legacy transceiver when you meant "older transceiver."

Tim W4TME,  It would be nice if Flex could update the Brochure to show the New Front Panel layout rather than some Lab Queen that does not represent anything close to the Shipping Product.
