Flex 6600 manual

The FLEX-6600 series SDR is designed for the Ham who wants to operate the radio exclusively as a server from PC, laptop, Maestro, Mac, or iOS clients whether local or remote. The 6600 and the 6600M both share the same game-changing band awareness, industry-leading phase noise performance/receiver dynamic range, and brick wall filters to give you the advantage in the most competitive DXing or contesting activities. With a PC, laptop, or Mac client, you can utilize up to four 14 MHz spectrum/waterfall displays and independent band/ mode receivers to revolutionize your view of the bands, especially on digital modes.

Getting the most out of your Flex 6600 requires some understanding of how to use it. That’s where having the owner’s manual comes in handy. With proper usage, there is less risk of damage, and you’ll learn how to get the most out of it.
