The FLEX-3000 is the high performance mid-range 100 watt all-band, all-mode amateur radio transceiver that achieves receiver performance that rivals all other traditional analog or hybrid DSP transceivers in its price class. The FLEX-3000 is the perfect transceiver for hams just getting started with high performance fully software defined radios.

The supplied open source software, PowerSDR, creates a powerful and flexible solution. The number of memories is limited only by the PC hard disk space.

The FLEX-3000 connects to the PC via FireWire.
