I find that to be very disappointing. At the very least they should have been up front and
said they could not commit to the hamfest. Saying nothing at all, (to me) is the worst kind
of thing they could have done.

You shouldn't be disappointed James. You just have not been paying attention to what I and many others have been posting about Flexradio practices here in this forum..

Most reasonable folks can see Flex Radio Systems for who they are.

Oh, I've been paying attention to you Stan!!  Grin
But, I had hopes that Flex Radio would improve over your past
experiences a bit! And for an upcoming product, doing what they
did is really bad for their public image. (I know, you don't need to
say it,  they already have a bad public image!)
 If they had problems about doing the live demo etc. they should have
been upfront and said so. Saying nothing at all is the worst thing they
could have done.
 Their resident employees that post on Facebook all state that they are
going to start showing live demos( at hamfests) of the 6000 Series starting in February.
 Of THIS YEAR!!!! ( beat you to it didn't I !!)  Roll Eyes
Makes one wonder, doesn't it?

  This seems to be an eHam SDR forum hobby to use flawed logic, ingoring logical fallacies, and making wild near conspiracy-theory claims.
Nailed it!!!

Since the Flex can operate as a wideband scanning receiver, I think they might have to go through the FCC Part 15 authorization process.  Possibly, because the hardware is bandlimited to a low enough frequency, they might not need to, since they could show that it can't receive cellular frequencies.    The FCC grant for the IC7000, for instance, has a bunch of stuff verifying that it cannot be modified to receive cellular frequencies, nor can you use a harmonic or image to receive them. So it's not just a free pass if you say "Part 97 use only"


There are rules about "offering for sale" of uncertified/authorized equipment, but I haven't kept up on the latest manifestations.
