The buffered output of the K3S is really nice, being about 5 dB stronger than the signal at the antenna. Nice improvement over the K3 level. I hooked up a Perseus to it recently, and you can get any level of detail you want by adjusting the span or the
vertical resolution. 5 dB per division worked the best.
A RTL-SDR dongle with free software like HDSDR works great, and it can be done for less than $100 (US), assuming you have the I/O board in the K3. This method is a little "messy" with RTL-SDR dongle, up-converter, cables and PC, but the scope quality is
Presently I am enjoying the much more expensive P3 with SVGA adapter feeding a PC monitor. My primary station "must" have a detailed band scope like Apache Labs or Flex radio and the P3 is every bit as good.
