The FlexRadio web site is down today.  I just got a Flex-5000A shipped to me and cannot download software to see if I have it working.  Does anyone know of an alternate download site?  I cannot find one by searching on Google.

Thanks,
Bob, K0BT

The timing of the website outage leads me to believe there may something new in the works, to be unveiled after Labor Day.

It seems to be "DNS confusion", self inflicted or otherwise:
Yesterday, support.flexradio.com was srv1.flexradio.com [174.36.134.128]
Today, it shows up as srv1.flexradio.com [198.252.75.116] and it's working.

Well, OK, the downloads section  " http://support.flexradio.com/Downloads.aspx?id=416 "
still needs a little work Smiley

 This may be an exercise in futility
Bob, K0BT

Owning any Flexradio is an exercise in futility. It is even more frustrating if you have one that has not been hit by lightning and actually works.

I love that feeling of bringing something badly damaged back to life.  Now to see what else might be wrong with it...

I know that feeling well. Congrats, you should be happy.

In another life I was an  industrial electrician/instrumentation Tech. I worked in a very large factory and was on Call via a cellphone. Everyone  that called me had a problem and they wanted it fixed yesterday. I brought many things back to life,  it was my job. I always got that  feeling you just described.
