Re: [Elecraft] [Elecraft-K3] K3: Macro to make radio beep...

Dave (NK7Z)
 

Hi Wayne,

Thank you for the suggestion!!

The software I use to send macros, (MixW), uses "<", and ">" to start and terminate a macro...

So no go... Any other way to suppress xmit send a character, then re-enable xmit?

You can send a string, say a letter ‘T’ (etc.) in CW mode with tone output only by embedding “<“ (RF off) and “>” (RF on) characters in a KYtext command.
For example:
KYW<T>;
The ‘W’ forces the K3 to complete the message send before moving on to other commands in the macro.

I like ESSB toggle.
NORM the filter.
Full wide on the WIDTH.
Several TX EQ presets for ESSB or Contest audio etc. 
A Home button, (sets to 50.125 USB) for when I just leave the radio on doing other things.
Band UP/Down.
I use the KPOD.

It has been a while since I have seen a macro list for the K3, and I am
reprogramming my external Genovation Keypad for the K3,

interesting new macros...

Re: K4 Latency Time

Roeland Jansen, PA3MET <roeland.jansen69@...>
 

>What gets really interesting is using a radio over the internet with its added latency. Let's say two brand X radios had a latency of 100ms, and were working each other in a contest. The total latency could well be over >300ms. A contest over a year ago, where all the operators were remote, resulted in the US station consistently calling when the DX was transmitting.

I've had issues with a flex/maestro combination with these latencies. That connection ws in the same city/country.

I think you missed my point.

Wes,
My entire station, K3s, KPA500, P3 and KAT500 runs off of one 117vac outlet without difficulty.
20 amps at 117 vac is 2340 Watts.  That will easily run a station with power to spare.

I have an Elecraft K3 that needs repair and I am wondering if anyone has sent their rig in recently?

My K3S repair also took 4-5 weeks but I sent it in a week or two before Christmas so I was expecting a long turnaround. Not a problem since I have a TS-590S as a backup rig.

My K3s arrived at Elecraft Repair on Feb 6.   This is what they sent me

Your RSA has arrived at Elecraft. Typical turn-around time for radio repairs is 10-15 working days. 

If your repair is a K3 or K3S, it may take up to 20 working days depending on the repairs or upgrades.

Sales will contact you when your radio/equipment repair is completed and is ready to be shipped home.

01/16/2020 - Ship date fro LA to CA (Slow boat FEDEX (ground))
01/21/2020 - Arrived Elecraft
02/04/2020 - Received "It's fixed" email from the tech.

So 19 days from ship to "fixed".  Figure an average 5- 7 days return shipping.
And estimated 24-26 days round trip.
I had them purposely delay return so I could add small parts/hardware/fasteners to the order.

However, EVERY situation is different.  Depends on 1) # of units in the repair queue, 2) what's wrong with it, etc, etc.

Bottom line - I am very happy with the service I have received on BOTH trips my K3s has made back to Watsonville.
If you REALLY want to cut time off the round-trip, the best place to cut is in shipping time....  Throw enough money at it, and you could cut time TO and time FROM from 5-7 days to 1-2 or 3 days...

But IMO, be SURE, regardless of shipping method to FULLY INSURE the REPLACEMENT value of the shipment TO Elecraft for sure, since loss or damage en route to CA is between you and the courier.

Mine came back in 4 to 5 weeks as well, and I could not be happier with the Customer Service... The price for repair is not that bad either.
