It goes away in TX TEST. So I suspect it is an RF-in-the-shack problem.
Try the K3 into a dummy load to verify that assumption.
If it is OK on a dummy load, your best fix is in the antenna system -
better baluns, check antenna connections and anything else that can
cause common mode feedline currents.

My Upgraded K-3 has a noise when the transmitter is keyed. The noise sounds
like either some type of data noise or a severe feedback The noise is there
the moment that the radio is keyed, no type of voice input needed. I have
checked all settings and can find nothing that is out of spec. I bypassed the
100 watt amp and the problem was still there. I am using Heil Proset headset
and when the radio is put into test the audio is fine in the headset. I used
the recorder to make sure the noise was there during transmit and I also set up
a second radio to monitor the K-3. The noise was still there. I have no idea
what to check next, if anyone has a suggestions it would be appreciated.
