[450] flex-3000

I'm really happy with the 3000. Ive been making AM contacts on 20 and 40
with great results, and plenty of sideband contacts. I can filter out
encroaching signals next to weak sideband signals, etc with ease. I also
love the 96khz panadapter, which i usually split with a waterfall display.

that said, the only real issue I've seen so far is that FM doesn't seem to
work properly, and I assume this is because the transmit bandwidth is
limited to 3.3KHz on the 3000. I don't know this for sure because I haven't
really investigated it fully, but there's practically no information about
FM and deviation in the manual. I had hoped to pick up some transverters for
2, 222 and 440 at some point but with out FM it might be sorta silly.

I know you use xverters, have any surplus sitting around you'd like to sell?
