First reports trickling is as expected:
FlexRadio 6700 – out of the box and how it sounds
I’ve been tracking personal milestones in my journey with the FlexRadio 6700:
Alpha hardware delivered ✓
Alpha software releases ✓
Production hardware delivered ✓
For anyone with experience in system development and manufacturing, committing the build of production hardware is no small decision – it simply has to be right! Of course the science is in the “simply” – just like “oh, it’s a simple matter of programming” – wish I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard that!
So when I got the automated notice from FlexRadio that my production version of the 6700 had been shipped, I was even more excited that when the alpha was shipped… first customer ship was approaching!

With reports of the Flex-6700 supporting 56 Mhz (!!!) of simultaneous band monitoring… well this is “way cool” beyond expectations!
