Ultra-Compact Home/Portable/Mobile Station
The revolutionary Elecraft KX3 puts the world in the palm of your hand! Despite its small size, it covers all amateur bands from 160-6 meters, operates in all modes, and has DSP-based features usually found only on larger radios. Available options and accessories allow the KX3 to be tailored to your needs, including the PX3 panadapter, KXPA100 100 watt amplifier, internal ATU, and internal 2- or 4-meter all-mode transverter.
Whether you're bagging a new peak on a SOTA outing, pounding out QSOs on Field Day, or working rare DX from the comfort of your home station, your KX3 will provide the features and performance you need.
Note: Keyer paddle and microphone may be purchased separately under Options/Accessories.
Build It Yourself Option
You can purchase the KX3 as a kit or factory assembled. All options will be installed at the time you purchase a factory Assembled product. Whether you choose a kit or factory assembled product, you may purchase additional options at any time and install them yourself - just choose any options under the "Kit Options" section.
The KX3's unique form-factor allows you to operate from anywhere. Fold out the rear tilt-feet for use on a desktop or picnic table. For extreme portability, you can add the internal wide-range ATU, 8-AA cell battery pack with NiMH charger, and adjustable KXPD3 keyer paddle. With a whip antenna, you can even operate hand-held.
In receive mode, current drain can be as low as 150 mA - about one-half to one-third that of competing all-band portables. Transmit efficiency is also excellent, further improving battery life.
Full-Featured, Yet Easy to Use
The KX3 features a large front panel with all controls optimized for convenient use. You won't have to dig through menus to set the power level, adjust the keyer speed, or change filter settings. And the KX3 has the same full-size display as the Elecraft K3S, so all operating information is available at a glance.
The KX3's tutorial-style manual explains how and why controls are used, so new Hams will be experts in no time. Of course, you'll also have Elecraft's legendary customer support and free firmware upgrades via the internet.
