A K3S and a P3 set up as I have my K3/P3 will run you about $4700. Although I really do think my rig is great - I seriously do wonder how the Elecraft will compare to the ICOM 7300 when the going gets tough.
Will I replace my Elecraft? Sure - you can pry it from my cold dead fingers!
Will I get an ICOM 7300 as a backup rig - quite possible. Just need to learn more. After all, I could just grab one of the older K3 rigs that ops are selling as they upgrade to the K3S.
No decisions are made quickly here. I prefer to be an educated buyer. And this seems to be the place to learn.
