One good thing is if you are one of the first to buy a K4 it won’t cost you money to be the first to own. The K4 will cost the same a year from now, or maybe a little more.

When it came out a few months ago it was $2199, yes it has depreciated $500 in a few months.

I have two, k3 and k3s.  I put the k3 up for sale for $1400, included the ATU and upgrade synth.  I got one inquire.  that was it.  I will keep it rather than lower the price.  Backup shall we say..  

 

I agree on the K4, at first I was really interested then after a while thinking about it I got less interested….so like you I’ll wait for the dust to settle, then think about it again.  In the meantime my K3s, P3, KAT500, KPA500 are working super good…

Dale,

 

My reason for selling is not because of the K4, it is because I have 3 K3S. Wife said it is time to down size. The K4 which has a lot of nice eye candy will take many upgrades and lots of $$$$$ to perform as well as a K3S. 

 

Also as I learned a long time ago there are some things you don’t want to be the first on the block to buy.  Nothing is perfect the first timeout and there can be many bugs that will need to be worked out as they are discovered. They could be software, which is easy to correct, or hardware, which might be more difficult to correct. 

 

Case in point, look at all of the changes and mods that were done over the years to the early K3s. There were a lot of hardware changes that required parts/components to be removed and, or added, or replaced. Most of the mods required soldering, all of the components are SMD, so how many hams are capable of, or have the equipment to replace the SMD components? So the K4 might have to make a few trips back to Elecraft. Shipping charges are very expensive these days. 

 

So for me I will stick with the K3S which has all of the bugs worked out, I just don’t need 3 of them

This K3S is in excellent condition and there is not a scratch on it any where. I bought it new 12/1/15 and it has been only casually used, primarily on digital. The K3S has been updated to the current firmware. I have gone through and checked the receiver sensitivity, using the Elecraft XG3 RF Signal Source and I have also checked the power output on all bands and all looks to be normal and within specifications. I did check with Elecraft technical support to see if there were any current mods, or updates and was told there were none.

 

Asking price is $2750, which includes shipping to anywhere in the lower 48 states. I do have the original shipping box, which will be used to ship the K3S.

 

If you were to order this new from Elecraft today, with their special price it would cost:

Hey Merv how’s things on Molokai?

Wow, you got a good price on that K3.  I have an ad on Eham for one of my K3’s, $1400 with only the ATU and updated synth, got only one tire kicker.  So I keep my K3’s and forget about any K4’s for a while…

I’ve got a 160 antenna sort of but it takes power, sometime it would be fun to try a contact early in the mornings before sunrise here.

Re: Re-listing K3S For sale

Give that man a cigar!!    :)

I like the idea.  Here’s another, Elecraft should have a buy-back program, buy back the K3 at wholesale price and then set up a used K3 sale section in their web site…

K3s are selling for a lot less than a K3S, also low SN K3s probably have not been updated.

Dale,

My reason for selling is not because of the K4, it is because I have 3 K3S. Wife said it is time to down size. The K4 which has a lot of nice eye candy will take many upgrades and lots of $$$$$ to perform as well as a K3S. 

Also as I learned a long time ago there are some things you don’t want to be the first on the block to buy.  Nothing is perfect the first timeout and there can be many bugs that will need to be worked out as they are discovered. They could be software, which is easy to correct, or hardware, which might be more difficult to correct. 

Case in point, look at all of the changes and mods that were done over the years to the early K3s. There were a lot of hardware changes that required parts/components to be removed and, or added, or replaced. Most of the mods required soldering, all of the components are SMD, so how many hams are capable of, or have the equipment to replace the SMD components? So the K4 might have to make a few trips back to Elecraft. Shipping charges are very expensive these days. 

So for me I will stick with the K3S which has all of the bugs worked out, I just don’t need 3 of them.

This K3S is in excellent condition and there is not a scratch on it any where. I bought it new 12/1/15 and it has been only casually used, primarily on digital. The K3S has been updated to the current firmware. I have gone through and checked the receiver sensitivity, using the Elecraft XG3 RF Signal Source and I have also checked the power output on all bands and all looks to be normal and within specifications. I did check with Elecraft technical support to see if there were any current mods, or updates and was told there were none.
 
Asking price is $2750, which includes shipping to anywhere in the lower 48 states. I do have the original shipping box, which will be used to ship the K3S.

Re: Re-listing K3S For sale

southdaleus
 

I hear ya…

I have two, k3 and k3s.  I put the k3 up for sale for $1400, included the ATU and upgrade synth.  I got one inquire.  that was it.  I will keep it rather than lower the price.  Backup shall we say..  

I agree on the K4, at first I was really interested then after a while thinking about it I got less interested….so like you I’ll wait for the dust to settle, then think about it again.  In the meantime my K3s, P3, KAT500, KPA500 are working super good…

FS: K3/P3

GRANT YOUNGMAN <ghyoungman@...>
 

Since I currently have no reasonable solutions for fixed station operation and am primarily KX3-portable, I have reluctantly decided to part with my K3 and P3

The K3 is fully featured and updated. The P3 has both SVGA and TXMON options installed. The K3 was back at Elecraft in October 2018 for a health check and it is operating fully to specifications. Both units are in as-new physical condition (well, there might be some dust).

The specifics of the radio, options, updates, etc. can be found here:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lOUwAigCL3lXVDASYb9i5BkKFWGFKDsw/view?usp=sharing

Photos are here:
https://flic.kr/s/aHsmEE9gX4

I am asking $4300 including shipping (UPS, CONUS) in Elecraft shipping cartons.

Please respond off-list with questions, interest, etc. I’ll be happy to discuss reasonable offers.

Thanks ..

KX3 FS

Larry
 

I bought a brand new KX3 while at the Visalia DX Convention back in
April.  The box it came is is still sitting here.  It is a factory built
unit unit and is configured as follows:

KX3-F 160-6M Transceiver

KXAT3-F Internal 20W ATU

KXBC3-F Internal NiMH charger with real time clock

MH3 Hand Mic

ES80 Carrying case

I just bought NiMH batteries a week ago.  It appears to perform as the
factory specs indicate.  I have put a couple of frequencies into memory
and done a lot of listening with it.  Not one second of transmit time
though.  I use my K3 relentlessly so i have put the KX3 into it's
carrying case and set it up on the shelf.  The batteries should be fully
charged so take it out of the Box/case and fire it up.  It also comes
with the DC power cord and the KXUSB  cable.

Not sure what shipping costs would be, cheaper with out the box for sure
but not as safe.   Nice little radio and would be great as a WSPR unit.
Immaculate and un-marked in any way.

$1400 plus shipping
