Update 16/8 from Flex Radio:
"Since announcement of these radios we have made a few changes in hardware and software that we are pleased to share with you. Based on customer feedback we added a dedicated ¼ inch TRS balanced microphone input to the back panel of the FLEX-6600/6600M. We also incorporated a blue backlight for the FlexRadio front panel logo on the 6400/6600 base models. In July we released SmartSDR™ version 2.0 of which includes the exciting new SmartLink™ Remote feature allowing you to access your radio from anywhere you have a broadband connection (included with all new radios). We believe all of these things will add to the overall experience of the radio.
The last components for the FLEX-6400M and FLEX-6600M models are currently scheduled to arrive in the factory during the second half of September. Also, the final plastic front panel components for the FLEX-6400 and FLEX-6600 models are expected in late October. This currently places production start up approximately one month behind where we originally estimated. SmartSDR integration is nearing completion and the new models will enter beta testing soon."
