I am starting to save for one of these ….. today!

WOW !!!!!!

Thanks to Jeff KE9V for the photos.  

I want one of these!  I am going to start saving now; and as availability gets closer (end of the year?) you just might see my K1 being offered up for sale.  I never thought I'd ever think that possible; but for one of these?  Definitely!

Drool, drool, drool, drool ...........

    They are indeed cool.. You can spend a lot of money with Elecraft.. I didn’t realize how much until Dayton this year.

    I’m lusting over the Kenwood TS-590 myself. AES is doing their damnest to make me sleep on the couch for the next several weeks..

    Expensive hobby, isn’t it? :)

  • Larry W2LJ:

    Yes, it is.

    To raise enough money for a KX3 will involve selling my K1, PFR-3A and then saving up the rest. If I wasn’t married and didn’t have the mortgage and kids, it would be infinitely easier. That being said, I’d be infinitely poorer for not having my wife and kids – so all in all, I’d rather struggle for the KX3.

    fred you know what they say…

    the older men get the more expensive their toys become

    but ya that looks really nice… except it has paddles on it :)

  • Larry W2LJ:

    Paddles are optional – you can use whatever.

    I never thought I’d ever sell my KX-1, or IC-703 – until now that is……
