There's some indication that a number of potential SDR buyers don't rely on hastily erected, purpose built brand slander sites to get information, but instead, possibly tend to listen on the air, read from several sources, and make decisions based on solid data and their own use case.
Excuse me, are you referring to my website with this remark? Did you even read my post there about how I am likely keeping my Flex radio?
Did you even take notice that the only manufacturer that is represented by two forums for their radios is Flex Radio Systems?
I have even invited Flex Radio Systems to come and participate and asked for information and for a review radio. Don't mistake balanced commentary for brand bashing. If you really took time to get your facts straight you would realize how slanderous your remarks above are.
All SDR users, even non hams are invited to use the site and help build the site. Free blogs are offered and the site doesn't bombard you with advertising. No radio manufacturers are paying for the site either thus not causing me to become biased or cater to certain vendors. Yes, the zone is a work in progress because its not highly subsidized like many other sites. In fact, the only subsizing it gets is donations by its users, the rest and bulk so far is funded out of my pocket. It will become informative and will cover all SDRs and users that want to come and build it up. A wiki for SDR terms and knowledge is underway already! Users are even invited to submit articles and reviews.
So instead of bashing it, why don't you come on over and contribute and help build the Flex forums up there with factual information? Why not post a blog on your experiences? Why not post some videos of the 6K series in action? If you visited the site you would see many there eagerly await news and users of the NEW flex radios.
These comments you made are very disappointing!
