Has anyone used the 5000 (A/C) on any of the MARS program? I belong to USAF MARS and I have been thinking about getting a 5000C.

We definitely have quite a few customers of the FLEX-5000 series that we have issued MARS keys to unlock the radio/software.  I know as I issue them personally.    The process is simple and it just plain works.  Let us know if you have further questions about this.

I have just ordered a 5K-A and would like to use it on the "Outback HF radio network" and "Royal Flying Doctor" HF freq's...as the radio will be installed in our caravan (trailer in American) that we tow all over the remote parts of Australia.  Can this mod be factory-installed before sending to me in Australia or can I perform it after it arrives? [I just ordered it from our local agent]. Cheers, Eddie VK4AN

What are those frequencies?

Any possible frequency change beyond the standard frequency allocations is done via a firmware change so there isn't a factory modification.

There are a number of frequencies in the 2,5,6,9 and 12 MHz bands plus the "outback HF radio network" for 4WD users like me using similar freq bands.  I can send you a list of the actual frequencies if you need them... They are all USB mode.

I can't grantee anytrhing, but I will need the following

The frequency ranges for each of the bands.

Information on what license allocations are needed to work on those bands. Something official from the Australian government.
