Hi, Bill,

You will need the 6700 to do so2r with one radio… You cannot receive on the 6500 while transmitting. I made that mistake and bought the 6500. It was ok for awhile because I was single band. Now I plan to be so2r and I had to trade in my 6500 for the 6700. (By the way, I’m not sure you would gain much if you have the K3S version.) 

Good luck,

Chuck W5PR

At the hamfest last weekend I had some extra time Sunday and wandered over to the Flex radio site. and had a long sit down with one of the reps.  I did a hands on with the 6500  and was truly impressed, especially with how "easy" it was on the ears.

I currently have a pair of K-3s for SO2R and have kicked around replacing these with the 6500.  I know K9CT as well as a couple others who use the Flex stuff.  I really would like to hear from them and others about these radios and how they compare to the K-3s in a contesting and Dxing situation...ease of use, operator friendly, audio quality for listening as well as transmit etc.  Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
