FlexRadio Systems announces the "End of Manufacturing" (EOM) for the FLEX-5000A transceiver.

The FLEX-5000A began production in 2007 as our flagship Software Defined Radio product. It has been highly successful and its chart-topping performance is enjoyed daily by thousands of customers around the world. Recently, we've been faced with procurement challenges related to subsystems and components used in the FLEX-5000 product that would force a product redesign. These challenges plus the dramatic customer shift from the FLEX-5000A to the FLEX-6500 for new purchases make it economically unfeasible to continue manufacturing the FLEX-5000. Here are the important points:  

  • We will continue to support and service the FLEX-5000A in our US, Canadian, and EU Service depots for many years to come just as we’ve done with all FlexRadio products.
  • We will continue to enhance and support PowerSDR™ as we have done for the past 10 years. Four new releases of PowerSDR have been delivered in the last 12 months and more enhancements are in development now.
  • We will continue to sell the RX2 second receiver and the ATU autotuner upgrades for the FLEX-5000 as long as there is a meaningful demand for the products.
  • We sincerely appreciate our loyal FlexRadio customers and it was great to see so many of you this weekend at Dayton Hamvention 2013. We thank you for your support and understanding as we make this necessary product transition.
