Printed Flex-6000 Series Manuals

Several new FlexRadio Flex-6000 series owners have emailed me asking about pre-printed manuals.

FlexRadio as a Software Defined Radio outfit sends a CD with new radios (or at least mine came with them) and depends on downloads for updates.

That is great if you are somewhere with good cheap connectivity and if you are like me where a printed manual is helpful, are willing to print out a copy.

Peter WA2CWA at the ManualMan has an arrangement to offer preprinted manuals: ManualMan.com FlexRadio Manuals

Technically the Hardware and Software manuals are different downloads, which ManualMan offers unpunched, pre-punched or comb-bound.

They print the latest public released version, unless you ask them for an older version.

I started using their manuals when my Flex-5000A arrived in 2008 – WHERE IS THE BOOK ON THIS THING? – HIGH QUALITY VINTAGE MANUALS FROM THE MANUALMAN

Of course they offer a lot of other manuals, claiming to have some 15,000+ manuals available!!!

Where is the Book on this Thing? – High Quality Vintage Manuals from the Manualman

http://www.manualman.com/

ManualMan specializes in amateur radio, audio, and radio-related manuals primarily from manufacturers who no longer support certain older equipment models or from manufacturers who no longer exist. ManualMan always recommends you check the availability of needed manuals from the original equipment manufacturer first. An original manual on a complex piece of electronic equipment (with multi-layer boards, path layouts, complex schematics, color layer identification, etc.) is always easier to read than a replication. If the manufacturer can no longer supply the information you need, ManualMan would be happy to serve you.

Bought my Flex-5000a Manual here, as I was uncomfortable with having only a pdf Manual.

The quality was excellent and the price very fair for what I bought.

Highly recommended!
