I hope it isn't true that Flex is discontinuing the 5000A? Myself and many others have invested a lot of money into updating their 5000A and also fighting the ridiculous VAC requirement to work digital modes. Will Flex Radio return our investments that many have made in the last few years?

We suffer from kleptomania and sometimes have to take something for it.

That is sure not the way to gain customer loyalty. Why would you pull a product before the 6000 series comes out. Just can't wait to see how soon they run out of parts to fix the 5000.

I hope FlexRadio will sell the service manual again! They did some years ago but discontinued it.

For us sendind a rig back to Texas or Europe is very inconvenient, expensive and risky (countless stories from ham operators tell about rigs disappearing on their shipping frome the Caribbean to US or Europe). So a major hardware issue is a big fear here!

Anyway the 5K is a very nice piece of equipment once you get used to it. I would never change and go back to a conventional transceiver.

Regards.
