Here’s a radical idea. Why not just sell the K60XV, minus the 60m parts? That way, no one has to design a new board. You could call it the K—XV, where the 60 part has been subtracted. > On Aug 27, 2019, at 1:32 PM, Wayne Burdick wrote: > > The high-value, low-temperature-coefficient trimmer

2019-09-11 Thread Ken Bandy, KJ9B
Hello. Is it possible to manually adjust anything other than the position of the notch filter on the K3S. I recently was working FT8, when a ham relatively close to me was desensing my receiver when working FT8 on the same band. I was able to notch him out by manually setting the filter, but it

A better technique would have been to turn off the AGC off and reduce the RF gain.  I do this for FT8 and it works quite well. -de John NI0K Ken Bandy, KJ9B wrote on 9/11/2019 4:02 PM: Hello. Is it possible to manually adjust anything other than the position of the notch filter on the K3S.

Bill, Before this "idea" gets too far, let's look at the practical side of it. You are forgetting the resources required to do that - there is still work to design the kit, test it, and write the assembly and test instructions. Firmware would have to be re-written to remove the band switch
