Maestro places the most frequently used controls directly at your fingertips. Controls are labeled for intuitive operation and designed to minimize hand motion for the most common radio operations. Occasionally used controls are easily accessible on the large touch screen display bypassing the complexity of multi-function buttons and multi-level menus found on most transceivers. Like modern phones and tablets, capacitive touch control is provided on the large LCD display for intuitive pan, zoom, tune, and menu operation. CW Paddles can also be plugged into the Maestro to work directly with your FLEX-6000 series radio.

If you’ve ever longed for the moment when you could monitor the bands or work DX from a lounge chair by the pool or from the comfort of your leather recliner — the time is now. Maestro’s small footprint and minimal wiring clean up your operating position and let you mount the radio virtually anywhere in the shack or around the house, Its sleek, lightweight design makes it not only the envy of your peers but also easy to carry or pack.

Your Maestro ships with Fixed Feet, Power Supply and an Ethernet Cable. Many other options are available, so please explore the Maestro accessories page and do not forget to read the FAQs as it does answer a lot of questions.
