    Don't bother to google this model

    8 of only 10 hits were porn sites with this model embedded in the site description.

    You won't find any pictures of this radio...anywhere.

    Duh ! We're getting a lot of Google hits. Check a thread...any thread. :biggrin_25525:

    This radio also showed up on 4 Ebay slots...all had been immediately removed. Dead thread.

    The cheapest 6900 F model I can find is over 300 bucks refurbished. New over 400. This is for the 150 watt model.
    Says it looks just like the 6300, but with SSB and CW.

    umm... you can use it as long as the company doesnt have a rule against 10m radios. The radio has a lot of options you will probably never use... it may be too good to be honest. a 450W radio... (probably wont do 450w)
    also you will annoy the crap outa me when i hear ya over here from NY. i would buy that radio only to use as a sideband radio... and if you dont know what sideband is, and how to use it, you probably wont. it sounds like a good radio, i would like it, but i doubt you will use it to its potential, you can spend less money on a good radio that you will understand.

    Unless you have a company policy against it you should be ok. Over 500w you start having issues with power draw for the radio, but under that I have never had an issue.
    Be sure you wire it directly to the battery though.
