Since my last update on September 8th, we have begun upgrading all previously shipped customer units, and expect to complete this process by the end of October. 

Each amplifier is being tested at 1,500 Watts key down for 5 minutes on multiple bands prior to shipment with excellent results. This means that you will be able to operate the amplifier at full legal limit even in the most strenuous operating conditions such as FT8 and RTTY contesting, with no power back off.

Ranko and I are very grateful for the hard work of the FlexRadio and SKY SAT (4O3A) development teams, and in particular Graham Haddock (KE9H) and Dan Quigley (N7HQ) for their expertise, contributions and leadership in bringing the Power Genius XL product to market readiness.

As we finalize upgrades of current customer units, we will begin contacting pre-order customers to confirm shipping information and complete payment. 

Thanks again for your patience and confidence. Please feel free to reach out to us at any time if you have questions about PGXL or any other FlexRadio activities.

73,

Gerald Youngblood

CEO

Excellent!  Can't wait for my turn!  Will the antenna tuner be available soon as well?

Thanks for an outstanding company with excellent products and support by the way Mr. Youngblood.  You have really done something tremendous here.

Russ, I’m hoping too that we’ll be getting tuner updates before too long, but I’m sure they’ll take the time for stress testing, on the tuner especially since there is where the rubber hits the road! 

Craig, wish I could put a rig on the Kubota, the roll bar would make a great Tarheel mount, wouldn’t it?  But alas, the Flex is not weatherproof there’s the noise and vibration too.   (-:    What’s the model in the pic?

BTW, I noticed in the 2.4.9 change log that they improved Maestro/M amplifier meter persistence.  That was one of my minor peeves – have to re-select the PG XL meters on the 6600M display every time I turn on the radio.  Haven’t loaded 2.4.9 yet, but if it fixes that it’s a nice improvement!
