Long story short, they got a bit confused when I got there because somebody scanned the name wrong. They eventually found it and it had to remain in the back of the car for the entire day.... the horror!
Here it is in its temporary location until I can move everything so it's where I want it.
Here is a screenshot of everything running. The big screens have the 6300 on the left and SDRPlay on the right.
More to come, I'm playing with the 6300 on my iPad 2, it's a bit overwhelmed so I'll switch to the laptop for around the house operation. The Maestro is back ordered so playing the waiting game on that, 4 weeks hopefully will go fast!
The dreaded word "EXCEPTION" is never good. I just received their email stating due to a mechanical failure they will "TRY" to deliver my package as soon as possible.
Last time this happened, it took weeks to resolve so I'm calling for an update first thing in the morning. I don't know how hard it is to get a truck to the location of the mechanical failure and load it up and move on, this wasn't sent ground, it was sent via the expensive option of 3 day select.
I am researching a new radio, the contestants are the Icom 7300, the Yaesu 3000 and the FlexRadio 6300 and Maestro Combo.
I know it's not really fair to compare the first two to the FlexRadio but these are the 3 I picked. I ruled out the Yaesu 3000, I hated to do it but Yaesu is behind the curve right now, the 3000 has been out a long time as have their other radios.
I like the Icom 7300, but being able to take the head unit for the Flex 6300 around the house and even to the RV, SOLD! The Maestro is back ordered so for now I'll use my iPad to remote control it and my also my laptop and desktop.
I'm ordering the FlexRadio 6300 tomorrow after talking to them about the Maestro back order.
The FlexRadio software, awesome!
