Good question Neal... You may want to have a look at
the Elecraft e-mail reflector. A link is provided on
their website www.elecraft.com .. There is considerably
more activity there... not all of it pertaining to the
K3... and, nothing so far regarding an answer to your
question. I am not certain if Wayne and the gang
watch this group... but, I am sure that once actual
specs are published, they will be posted on the Elecraft
site.

Thanks Joe, I have been reading that reflector off and on for several
years now. Eric has already responded to a post so at least he reads
postings here. Was hoping he would chime in with some information. I
am waiting for sun spots to be added to the list of options...

Subrx availability?

Has anyone heard or seen mention of whether the subreceiver
availability will be delayed beyond the first K3 production run?

Don,

The radio itself won't be available for a minimum of 5 weeks, I
would
not be suprised if the date slipped to August the way things go. I
am
fairly certain they are still working on the documentation among
other
things.

Re: [Elecraft_K3] Re: Subrx availability?

Leigh L Klotz, Jr.
 

Elecraft said the main and sub RX (and their DSPs) are identical, so there shouldn't be any design or fab issues that affect only the 2nd RX. Since they have 50% cash in hand for the first ~200 units including options, I don't think it would be too hard to get 250 or 300 instead of 200 RX and DSP modules fabbed at the same time. They may try to get the first RX modules tested first but it doesn't seem to me that it would take more than a few days to test everybody's 2nd RX.

Re: Subrx availability?

Eric Swartz - WA6HHQ, Elecraft
 

The 2nd RX should ship 30-45 days after the first K3s begin shipping.
It was the last item to leave engineering and the pipeline of parts
and PCBs takes time to arrive here. Plus we have a lot of items to
build, test and ship.

We're pretty busy these days, as you might expect, so I can';t post
here often. I'll try to stop by from time to time though!

Thank you for the information!

Would it be too much to ask what the shipping schedules for the K3 and the other options, filters, etc. look like currently?

Re: Shipping schedules

Just have to ask: how many units in a production run ? Still curious
as to when the DR, IMD, etc numbers will be available. As an ex
metrologist I have this desire for numbers. :-)

last week of July. Sold out.

2nd Production Run K3 shipments are scheduled to begin mid-September.
Sold out.

Numbers be patient.

The long range forecast is that its raining success in Aptos. I also
heard that there is a radio drought over Tokyo, due too El-Aptos.
This fact combined with the high pressure system over Aptos means many
will have too wait for their much loved dream the K3.

Somewhere on Elecraft's website I previously saw ~May 15 was the

K3 on DXpedition

Mike B <kw1nd@...>
 

Maybe this has already been posted, but I hadn't seen it. A buddy found
this nugget on a DX list:

The February 2008 DXpedition to Ducie Island (near
Pitcairn in the south Pacific) will be using 7
Elecraft K3 radios along with 7 ACOM amplifiers and
various antennas.


Re: [Elecraft_K3] K3 on DXpedition

Toby Deinhardt
 

Found at: http://ducie2008.dl1mgb.com/content/view/39/2/

Carsten (DL6LAU) and Eric (K3NA) met in Dayton at the Hamvention to discuss more details about the operation from Ducie.

We had very nice conversations and as a result Elecraft committed to become a major sponsor. Eric and Wayne from Elecraft will supply us with seven to eight 8 K3s. In addition ACOM will supply 7 amplifiers and Force12 will supply most of the vertical antennas. Furthermore Oms, PY5EG will make a IRIDIUM satellite telephone available so that the logs can be uploaded on a daily basis hopefully.

Swapping Standard 2.7 kHz 5-pole Filter

bill_w4zv <w0zv@...>
 

According to Monica at Elecraft, it's possible to swap
the standard 2.7 kHz 5-pole filter for either the 2.8 kHz 8-pole or
the 400 Hz 8-pole for an incremental $90 ($30 credit plus the
standard $120 charge for 8-pole filters), but only the 2.8 kHz
and 400 Hz may be substituted for the standard filter.

Now if we only knew if there were any difference in
IMD/BDR performance we could make a rational decision...
