Elecraft K3 Build Unboxing Page 4
« on: March 09, 2013, 06:33:08 AM »
In the continuing saga of the Elecraft K3 Build the package arrived last night but due to some other factors in the house I waited until first thing in the morning. One of the factors was I wanted to get my cameras out and setup for the unpacking of the radio. As many of you my wife and daughters find it a little strange at times that Im doing video production in the breakfast nook but we are short on space and I love to write my blog so I normally do these things in the morning when Im up before the rosters.

You actually went ahead and sold it? What are you replacing it with? I know you still have the IC-7000 ....

Sold the 7000 and the k3.. and my kenwood handheld too..

Bought cheaper stuff.. Got a ts-590s which frankly. I like as much as I liked my k3 for half the price.

Hay dial, How do you like the TS-590? My NEW one is due here, on tomorrows Mail Plane. I spent yesterday, downloading all the Manuals, Mods, and information I could find, on the Net. Lots of good stuff out there. One Mod I will be doing almost immediately, is to rewire the Aux Rx Antenna Jack so that it is a Second Receiver Antenna Jack, for a use with my twin Icom R71s, and the SDR Panadapter/Spectrum Analyzer Receiver, I am working on.
