KN3C Equipment For Sale


For sale is a barely used Flex Maestro, s/n 1616-5092-0100-6842. The unit is currently in the "coma" mode. What's that? Here's the explanation from Flex:

If you are the owner of the original Maestro, version "A", those with serial numbers in the form xxxx-xxxx-0100-xxxx, there is a requirement for periodic charging of the internal display battery if the Maestro is not being used for a period of time. If the Maestro has not been connected to a power source for a period of 4-6 weeks, the internal display battery can discharge to such a low level that when voltage is applied, it will not "wake up" and initiate a charge cycle. Therefore it is required that you connect your Maestro to DC power once every 4-6 weeks for about 15-30 minutes to ensure that the internal display battery receives a full charge. If the display battery completely discharges, the Maestro will not boot, and a HelpDesk ticket will have to be opened to resolve the issue.



There is a procedure to charge the battery mentioned in the notice from Flex, which I have tried with no success. Flex charges a flat fee in the range of $60 to $70 plus shipping to revive a Maestro from it's coma. Flex and I agreed to disagree on who should pay to revive my Maestro, so it is now for sale. Plus the fact that I no longer need it, helped me to arrive at this decision.



The Maestro is in the original box with all of the accessories. It's yours for $500 plus the shipping. Shipping weight is 6 lbs from 17042. Sorry, I do not have a PayPal account. If interested, please contact me directly at kn3c@arrl.net.
