Just got Flex 3000 on air couple of days ago. Today I've gotten two reports of my xmit freq drifting. I didn't think much of the first report but spent some time with the second report. On 6M 50.140.000 I first went low 50.139.900 then settled down high 50.140.200. It would move durinf a transmission.

The has been on all day. The case is very cool to the touch. In checking the forum I found how to check the Temp/vollt. It reads 13.7v 38C. The flex is sitting in an open space on the desk with plenty of space for air flow.

The rec freq is rock solid. Of course I checked to make sure that xit not on. That is what we thought might have happened. The station reported that when I first called him I was on freq. When turned back to me I dropped low enough that he had to rit to be able to understand me. I made several transmissions and never changed my "dial" setting of 50.140.000. After a min or so I settled down to the high freq.

Well, not sure if anything is wrong. I've noticed I have had to use RIT quite a bit this past week - I think it is the bands that are drifting, not the radios - either that or there are *alot* of radios that drift out there. Also, I let me Flex "warm up" for 15-30 mins before I use it if I can, just to settle the thermals.
