Re: Elecraft K3S - DVR problems

OZ0J Joe

Bob and others


I only used the buttons on the front panel of my K3S. recording to M1 and hold M1 to start the peat function. As fa as I remember it was on 20 and 40 meters (same antenna and same amplifier). I was not much on 80 meters (other antenna and other amplifier) and I cannot remember whatever I had the problem on 80 meters.


I will try to remove and re-seat the DVK board if anyone do no have some other suggestions.

How did you use it and how frequently did it fail Joe?

Did you have a logger running on a PC and use it to activate the DVK using the appropriate macro commands?  If this is true, I would test repeatedly with no or low RF output into a dummy load.

Or, did you use the K3 M1 button?  If this is true, I would remove and re-seat the DVK board.

I have never had my DVK fail on either K3 regardless of the method I use to start it.  I use it almost daily.
