FlexRadio Systems sent out an update on the Flex-TGXL (Tuner Genius XL) which initially will launch in two forms – a 1×3 matrix (one input and three antenna outputs) and very interestingly an unique SO2R version (two separate radio inputs, each matched to a specific single output).
Preliminary View of the Flex-PGXL Tuner
Those of us with Flex-TGXL pre-purchased as part of being an early adopter of the Flex-PGXL Amp, received a survey where we were asked which version we wanted, or if we would rather have an Antenna Genius switch. I’ve elected the SO2R version for my selections.
Some interesting preliminary information:

Power Rating – 2000 watts at 100% ICAS Duty Cycle
Display – 7 inch touch screen
Power Requirements – 15-26 VDC @ 2 Amp, power supply included
Min/Max Tuning Power – 10 watt min, 200 watt max
Operation – Fully Automatic or Manually Tuned
Rough Dimensions – 12″ wide x 6″ high x 14″ deep (to be confirmed as the spec sheet is a bit confusing)
Weight – 15-1/2 Lbs
Connectivity – Requires a CAT5 cable to connect to your LAN for FlexRadio integration
Preliminary View of Flex-PGXL Tuner
Pricing has not been announced. Everything is a preliminary information release.
This Flex-TGXL is a 4o3a/FRS project and most likely will be built in Montenegro at 4o3a’s facilities.
