They are indeed very nice radios!
However, they are not working on VHF or UHF. The only option is to use a
transverter which is kind of funny since the whole idea was to get away from
"hardware" and do it in "software". I really hope Flex would design a VHF,
UHF SDR for satellite operation. That would be a fantastic.

Robin, VE3FRH has two Flex radios and is most impressed with them. He
did an audio -visual presentation at our Club in Australia a few weeks
ago and is convinced this is the way of the future. After hearing him
speak on this I was quite impressed this their capabilities.
