So in order to get the same performance as the K3 buyers will have to buy the K4D at around $5000.  If one needs the remote possibilities along with iPad useage then the K4D might be a way to go providing you don’t already have a K3 w. P3.

Will upgrade kits/parts, for the original K3, still be available? I have a very early serial number K3, number 281, that I would like to upgrade, but haven't had the funds to do so. I was hoping to have them available at a later time, in a couple of year.

Maybe that will help the used prices.  Even so, I have no plans to sell mine for a K4.  I’ve already got out of that thinking.

Well this was certainly and "eye opener", but not totally unexpected.  

From the Elecraft Newsletter:

"If you've been thinking about purchasing a K3S, now is the time!  Purchase your K3S before Oct 31, and you'll receive both the October Special pricing plus an additional discount up to $125. 

Elecraft has a limited number of K3S transceivers in stock...when the last one is sold, the K3S will be discontinued.  Like any of our discontinued products, Elecraft will continue to provide support to K3S owners."

Re: Audio input into K3s Problem is too low from N1MM

Follow the K3 manual for level settings. Mic and Line In are different.

1. I am keying the radio
2. I can hear the voice - although very low from the K3s in Monitor
3. I have the K3s set for Mic+Line  - On
4. If I use the computer speakers, the recorded message is fine.
I am thinking I have a setting wrong in the K3s?

Any suggestions where to look?

Good Morning!

Bill Mader <billamader@...>
 

A long-time Elecraft owner (K3 #1 in 2009), when I saw this group mentioned, I thought I should join it.  After all, I have so "few" messages to read each day!  We're on our way to San Ramon for Pacificon.  After that, we will drop by Watsonville to leave a KPA500 at the hospital.  It did not survive the fall from the RV table, where it was strapped securely (or not), to the table after I hit a jarring pothole.  The LCD now looks like it's on LSD and nothing else functions properly.

If we can stay in CA long enough, and Team Elecraft has recovered from sufficiently from Pacificon, I hope to get a tour.  If not, harassing Bob, K6XX, at the show will have to suffice.  I also have the bottom cover from my new K2 kit with me in hopes of getting Eric and Wayne to autograph it.

Re: K3 PI03 no audio out

Michael Pupeza
 

In my early K3, I found that the Line In and Line Out jacks do NOT have grounded sleeves, and are dependant on each plug in connection having the tip and sleeve connected to each wire used. The schematic shows this and I was surprised when I tried to simplify a  Digital Cable by not using each sleeve connection. Could this be your problem?    Mike VE3EQP .....>
