Well, my brand new 6400 died less then a month after I received it. The problem seems to be that the audio, spectrum and waterfall data was not being sent by the radio all the time. There would be times it would start working for about 10-15 seconds and then just stop.
However, the command interface seem to work fine. Also it was still able to transmit.
I was communicating with an apps person for awhile. Since nothing he suggested worked, I got a phone call from Dan Quigley, N7HQ, the support director, who connect to my Flex via TeamViewer and determined there was nothing else that could be done remotely. Dan started the process of having Flex build me another 6400 to be shipped to me before I had to send the broken radio back.
This whole process took about 12 days. I have the new 6400 running now. Hope I have better luck with it.
I discovered there is a bug in the CW mode. If you set the the delay in the P/CW window to certain values, it will randomly stop transmitting. But it does recover, so you only lose a little. This seems to be a know bug and if I set the delay to a small value it does not happen.

January was the SKCC anniversary event. It lasted from Jan 2nd to the 31st. This is the second year in a row that I was able to complete the grand sweep.
I worked 86 out of 174 band slots, 110 K3Y operators worked, 12 DX Entities out of 17 worked, 5 Canadian Prov/Terr of possible 6 and 42 states worked.
All in all a good result. Not bad considering I worked the last 11 days with no WARC bands.

This award I am very proud of. It took me sometime to get, but it was worth it.
