Not all with Flex, had an array of rigs before buying the 5K when they came out.
Now running the 6K.
Qso was with IZ2FNS, a JT65 qso on 20 meters.

Been enjoying the rig and mode, fun to work stations you can't hear in the speaker or headphones, but still have perfect print.
The Flex can really pull out those weak digital stations.

Got to get back to it so I can get that next 1000 qsos.

Will it be necessary to send the rig in for a 100K qso checkup?

I'm old enough to remember manually greasing and changing oil ever 2000 miles.
(I don't think cars even have grease fitting anymore)
Changing oil weights for winter or summer.
Having to take batteries out of cars that sat outside during cold winter nights.
(I actually use a electric battery heater mounted under my rotor) It -3F today and the rotor is still turning slow even with the heater)

Actually I think only foreign made cars have digital grease fittings.

For American made, Msoft came up with 'virtual' fittings.

Bill, what about a virtual car? No speeding tickets, no parking dues...
