Update 10/21/2015 -

My FTM-400 is back from warranty repair so my Wires-X node is back online. Ive been running it on low power and keeping an eye on the heat. So far it is running cool. I may be able to up it to medium power.


Update 9/17/2015 -

My FTM-400 has been shipped back for warranty repairs for my Wires-X station is offline until I get it back.

Just got my Flex-1500 back from factory service. I broke the BNC antenna connector off of the PCB :( . Flex did an amazing job taking care of the non-warranty rapair. Excellent communication and very fast turn-around. A fine example of an American company.
