Joe and the Group:

With limited funds and the "you'll probably get ONE chance to buy
another rig before you're dead" XYL mantra (Hi Hi,only kidding dear),
I started my quest. First it began with the usual new rig offerings.

Then I started to do research. Plenty of it. After 6 months of solid
receiver research, etc. I have decided on the K3. So, when I do order (probably next year) I'll be getting the K3/100 with ATU,second
receiver and TCXO option. Filters will be the 2.1KHz-8 pole and the
400Hz-8 pole. I can have Santa bring other filters as time goes on.

This is going to be a great rig. From what I have researched (SDR
sites, serious technical papers on IMD, 3rd order IMD, selectivity,
etc.) Elecraft has hit the mark. Can't wait.

Quoting Joe Stofko <wb1aiu@snet.net>:


With more members coming on board to the group, I am wondering how many
may have decided to take the plunge? I made up my mind over the
weekend. Since I expect there will be lots of activity here once the
first shipments are made, I was thinking it might be fun to "survey" the
group... find out how many folks have actually decided to buy one, and
what options are hot items. I decided on the 100 watt version with the
ATU, 2.1kHz, 6kHz, 15kHz (FM) roofing filters, and the general coverage
xtal filter as well. I would love to have added the second receiver
module... but, maybe I can talk Mrs. Claus into it as a Christmas gift!
And, I guess that's how it will be... like I can remember as a
youngster, waiting imptiently for Christmas day... Man, it's gonna be
a long summer!
