Really neat to get “That Phone Call” from Matt at FlexRadio Systems. Of course it made my credit card twitch a bit.
Limited Edition Signature Series Radio #11, a Flex-6700 w/GPSDO, will be shipping very soon indeed – most likely arriving late this week or early next week.
Beating it here by a few days will be the new Supermicro Rack Mount i7 machine that John W1JCW has built up for my FlexRadio Flex-5000 and Flex-6000. Of course eventually the Flex-6000 will be operated more often remotely from elsewhere in the house, but that will be down the road.
As Radio #11 is being released as a SmartSDR Preview Edition it is VERY clear that not all the features expected in the general release of SmartSDR v1.0 will be there and there may well be bugs/glitches with the Preview Edition.
It will be a privilege to get the early hands-on and provide feedback to FlexRadio Systems as they ready their wider general release.
If my new radio arrives in time, guess what I’ll be doing in my shack this weekend?
