[Moon-Net] FLEX 1500 & MAP65

I too had a Flex 1500, DEMI xvtr and Map65 (as well as WSJT). I was 
never really able to get the combination to work properly with MAP65 
(nor WSJT for that matter) and I sold off the Flex. On the other 
hand, I use a Funcube Pro+ with MAP65 (via Linrad) and that works great.

I now use a K3s with the DEMI xvtr with WSJT (and starting to play 
with WSJX) and they work fine. BUT I also simultaneously run MAP65 
with the FCD+ so I have 2 methods of receiving EME signals and this 
works out great for me (worked XV4F, XV4Z and BA4SI this past weekend 
using this setup)

I HIGHLY recommend the K3S (which is also a KILLER radio on 6 meters!)
