The vast majority of laptop computers come with a little 2mmx7mm slot in
the case to allow the attachment of a security cable to discourage them
from growing legs when left unattended for a few minutes... Is there a spot
on the case of a K3s where such a milled slot could be added? It would be a
help when using one in a public place like Field Day, etc.

I just received a response from Elecraft. They are sending me a new bottom 
cover and a noise kit for some transformer noise that I had not previously 
mentioned here. While this will involve me tearing down the amplifier and then 
rebuilding it the outcome will be a properly constructed amplifier. 

In all fairness they did offer to repair it at Elecraft but I declined because 
of shipping and insurance cost and not having appropriate packing since it was 
a kit. 

It was a good response I think.  Thank you Elecraft.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

I am using the latest ver of wsjtx-x in various modes can get it working well
with JT Bridge and MacLogger Dx.

After following a setup guide I worked and logged about 50 QSOs quite well.

Then the receive signal disappears  on the waterfall or meter reading in the
software.

The tx also disappears the radio goes into tx mode but no ALC or RF power.

I am probably missing something simple but have spent days trying to figure
it out without success.


Any help would be gratefully accepted.

My K3 came back from being upgraded and seems to have a new menu item,

that value and the secondary display says "N/A".  It's not in my instruction

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8

I use a pair of SP3 speakers with my home K3S. If you use Elecraft's AFX 
feature (main receiver alone) or if you?re using both main and sub receivers at 
the same time, you?ll be amazed, like me, at how expansive the stereo audio 
space ?feels" with speakers this good. It can reduce operating fatigue, help 
with diversity reception, and take full advantage of broadcast-quality signals.

To make sure we got the SP3?s acoustics right, we collaborated with an expert 
in the field--literally a professor of audio physics. He helped us select the 
speaker, specify the cabinet materials, and ensure there were no oddities 
anywhere in the frequency range. The cabinet is rock-solid, using overlapping 
segments to eliminate all edge-to-edge joinery. You could just about park a 
truck on one (well, OK, a small import).

Several SP3 owners have posted comments here:

   http://www.eham.net/reviews/detail/13281

...so you don?t have to take my word for it.

In addition to its great sound, the SP3 includes a front-panel switch for 
selecting between two mono or stereo audio sources, e.g. two transceivers.

The Main:Atten setting is for the new 5/10/15 dB attenuator in the K3s 
main receiver.  Unless you got the new RF board I don't think you have 
it.  So the Atten setting is fixed at 10 dB.  The firmware probably 
identifies the old RF board and is trying to tell you that the setting 
is N/A for your radio.

Hello,


very strange !

The firmware is able to identify if is a K3 or K3s (serial number is 
different, the k3s always begin with 10xxx) and if is a K3. the menu it 
should not appear, i guess.

Hi folks,

I am looking for used, unloaded K3/100 in perfectly working conditions (no

Thanks for offers - price is the key in that case.

speaker, specify the cabinet materials, and ensure there were no oddities 
anywhere in the frequency range. The cabinet is rock-solid, using overlapping 
segments to eliminate all edge-to-edge joinery. You could just about park a 
truck on one (well, OK, a small import).

Several SP3 owners have posted comments here:

...so you don?t have to take my word for it.

In addition to its great sound, the SP3 includes a front-panel switch for 
selecting between two mono or stereo audio sources, e.g. two transceivers.

I have built 4 K2s. I built 3 just for the pure pleasure of 
participating in the engineering art that the K2 represents. The key to 
success is to not watch the clock; to not consider time at all when 
performing the assembly steps. As in many things in life, you should 
focus solely on the current step and current component. Do not think of 
the next step or steps later on, or even finishing. Place each component 
with all the care you can. One mistake resulting from rushing will cause 
you frustration and disappointment. The greatest sense of satisfaction 
you can experience when your are finished is to know that you did 
everything to highest degree of perfection you are capable of.

Hi,

For those who don't know it yet, the Bouvet Island DXpedition is now
officially aborted, after 3 days of silence on their part. The reason is
part weather, part engine failure. They are now on their way home. I wish
them well.

Hi,
They must be heartbroken like many of us. But, it's better than losing 
lives.
Hopefully they may try again.

I seem to have misplaced the data cable that connects the Kpod to my K3. Is 
this any kind of standard cable or do I need to get a new one from Elecraft?  
Thanks.

I really hope the can get home safe and sound!

Message-ID:
        <CAG9V=fnf29qroiq37zancyvzk102b4w_el77qwtgatwcddc...@mail.gmail.com>
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="UTF-8"

I just installed the KXV3B board, upgrading from the KXV3A. When I went to
do the 1mW calibration at the end, the calibration failed because the SWR
was 2.9:1 on 52 MHz. I tried a couple more times, with different dummy
loads and cables and found the same result.


I then connected an external SWR meter to the dummy load and found that the
external SWR meter showed a flat 1:1 SWR with the dummy load (as expected)
but the K3 SWR value was always higher, typically 1.4 or 1.5:1 up to 2.9:1
on 52 MHz into the dummy load. The tuner works perfectly on all bands,
however.


Has anyone had a similar issue? I can?t quite tell if the problem is in the
KAT3 or on the K3 main board, and more importantly what the fix might be.
Also, since the 1mW calibration failed, are there any other workarounds?
Many thanks in advance!

Look on page 19 of the owner's manual. If you use just any standard 
cable you can watch your VFO drift off frequency while you're in a QSO.

Directions are provided for making your own.
