Re: K3 question

People used to use the am filter for wide SSB.  This was commonly called lying to the k3. And fm filter for am, same deal. 
The only thing controlling your transmitted bandwidth would be microphone and transmit EQ.

Hi,
Thanks for the info, I have tried that.  It shows only two filters, while I have three...  I need to learn how the filter process works for adding and removing filters.

I believe that just by taping the XFIL button you can change the filer being used

I thought someone at Elecraft mentioned a way to use the FM filter under
SSB at some time in the past.  That was many years ago, Is there a way
to do this?

Israel,
That error is noted in my K3 Owner's Manual on Page 70.
*ERR TXF (not tfx)  Invalid transmit crystal filter bandwidth*
*The crystal filter selected for TX (with CONFIG: FLTX) is either too narrow or too wide. You must specify a filter
that is 2.7 or 2.8 kHz wide for CW/DATA/SSB, 5 kHz for AM and 13.0 kHz for FM.*
I suggest using the K3 Utility to check the settings of your installed filters.  Fred Cady's User Guide for the K3 & P3 (3rd Edition)
has a good write-up on the K3 Utility and filter setup starting on Page 24.
