Well it has been a couple of weeks now since I purchased my Flex 3000
and I can tell you that after being a ham since 1957 I am totally enthralled with this SDR unit. I adds a whole new dimension to amateur radio and every day I operate it I have a new and wonderful experience with this radio. I am running the beta 2.0 SDR at the present time and it is astounding and fun to play with. During my time in amateur radio I have owned many, many radios and I can say without hesitation this is the most fun I have ever had with a HF radio.
The support service from Flex is second to none and they go the extra mile to keep you satisfied and happy with your purchase. This in itself is a very important thing to consider when investing in a new piece of gear for the shack. Kudo's to Flex for an outstanding job of support and a fine product.
Every day I talk to other hams that are running Flex radios and learn from them and hear their stories about how happy they are with the rig. These radio's are not for the faint of heart, they can be a little over whelming at first, but a little patience and a little knowledge of running your computer and your on your way to hours and hours of fun.
Gentlemen Please!!! Let's try not to turn my posting into a place to squabble with each other. Flex Radio is not for everyone and "ALL" radio's have their quirks and issues not just the Flex Radio's! Personally I find my Flex 3000 to ad a new and fun dimension to ham radio, can it be improved??? Of course, but so can't even the most expensive radio's on the market today! Anyone not happy with their Flex radio will find it very, very easy to sell online for a fair price since they are in great demand.
