I looked through the manual from the downloads on the 403A web site, this is what I understand about it,,,any thoughts?

I just downloaded and printed the PGXL Quick Start Guide AND the Owner's Manual. The Guide is 23 pages and the Manual is 27 pages. One of the biggest things I noticed when reading both manuals is that the PGXL software runs OUTSIDE the Flex Software. When using the amp, it has to be turned on in standby. The radio software has to be opened, then the PGXL software is opened and it finds the radio and the PGXL!

Neither manuals show a ground lug! Both manuals show a picture of the back of the PGXL AND identify every component.

The RF power bar graph red-lines after 1 KW. That's interesting!

For people using the Flex Radio and the PGXL, it will take 10 minutes to get everything up and running!

Every time the PGXL is turned-on , the fans go to max speed for a period of time to "blow-out the internal dust"!
That's got to be rough on the fan motors.

The manual refers to the input AC power as 110 or 220 Volts. The industry standard today is 120 and 240 Volts.
One of the pictures in the manuals shows the input voltage at 239 Volts. That surely exceeds their 220 Volts as stated.

That is a DRAFT version of the manual.  We are working on the production version of it as I write this.  Please make no assumptions until we can get the updated manual online.  Thanks.
