my 6700 got hardware failure and even whit urgent ticket it still on tech bench after near 45 day ,and still no real news
since  my  remote station is really hard to reach  because of snow in winter ,i need to got a radio ASP

so i look into flex website for buy another radio ,only radio available right NOW  is anoter 6700
that out of question since i still not knot if my issue is specific to my old radio or to all 6700

then i check for Certified Pre-Owned radio , no stock all is on wait list ....

as for wait list i pre-order  a 6600 in less that 30 minute after it appear on flex website 
but once again i hit the celeb  "Flex brick wall filter on information"  ,so no clue of when it start deliver
to be honest ,no picture yet of any complete radio ,combine whit xmass holiday  and post slow down since overload
and remember delay of V2.0  , it really likely to not see it in 2017  ( radio still need to go on beta tester  hand first )
we have see picture of pallet of power XL  and still not sure it really available .

at the end the new Icom IC-7610 is now Available NOW , have XVRT port , work remote whit RB-SA1 whit no computer need and external 10mhz ref
all that i knot is on my side i need radio  on my hand for no later that 15 December  , if not if very likely that need to wait for April  that snow melt ..

and since right now is impossible to but a radio from flex that is real  in Stock what option is left ?

Thank you so much for your comments. I certainly understand your frustration and as you can imagine we are highly motivated to get back to a stock situation. We are about to birth multiple babies here at FlexRadio which means that we are quite busy! We will likely be sending out a status report early next week which will include production photos.

We understand that the wait has been disappointing but the new radios are going to be worth the wait. They really are amazing products.

If you are interested in a pre-owned radio, please contact as we are constantly getting radios in on trade for resale. We can get you set up.

As always, you can contact FlexRadio for questions or concerns.
