We Canadians have access to the new 630 band but cannot transmit, hence
does Flexradio supply an updated turf file for Canada or do we need to
go through Radioworld? I will need one for the 6700 and 5000. Also is a turf file unique for each radio or one file good for 6000 series and one file good for legacy radios?

For the FLEX-6000s, the TURF file limits the transmit frequencies of the PA, so 630m is not applicable. You have to use the XVTR port and a transverter to operate outside 160-6m. Either a transverter with an 3.8 or 4 MHz IF or a low drive power amp for 630m.

There is only one TURF file for all of IARU Region 2 and that is the default one that comes with the radio

For the FLEX series radio's, to operate 630m, you must a transverter with a 3.8 MHz IF.
