The other day, I bagged 2 atnos on 20m ft8 with my flex 6300. Afghanistan and Bhutan, both on 20m from Detroit, MI.
DXCC in 5 months including my slacking off and business trips.
FLEX 6600 is good on FT8! Look MOM no wires!
I started with FT8 in June. Just got the last state for WAS FT8 tonight.
Got 8B-WAS in about a year and 1/2 (FT8 only) (waiting for VT to QSL on 80). As far as Flex vs. another radio, I have to say it’s nice having digital audio all the way through. No signalink to adjust audio levels with.
Easiest to set up for all digital modes. And the RX is superb!
