The KX3 is all together now and there was some bumps in the road and I will share them in a later post. I still have to calibrate the roofing filter I will be using my Elecraft XG2 to do this but this may have to wait for another day. I have been hidden away in my radio room for a day and a half. The build took longer as I was videoing the process. The video will be divided up into segments of the build........see how it turns out.
|KX3 serial number 1990|
The roofing filter is pre-calibrated at the factory. No need to do it a second time.
Did you check the speaker for adhering washers? Seems that was behind some owners’ sound quality problems.
Good evening Larry, I thought if I purchased the KX3 as a kit that the roofing filters had to be calibrated. I was under the impression only factory built units came pre-calibrated??
Scruss thanks for the reminder I did go over the speaker very carefully for any lock washers or anything the speaker magnetic may had gotten ahold of…but there was nothing to be found.
Thanks for the reminder.
Mike the errata sheet sez all is factory calibrated. Just finished 2013 yesterday. Only goof is I used the long screws for the heat sink and the screws left were to short to anchor the transistor tabs swapped them out and all was OK.
100% parts, no shortages. Thanks Elecraft.
Good evening Bill, thanks for taking the time to comment and yes I have had lots of feedback regarding the filter it not having to be calibrated. I did not get a filter with the errata sheet….but the support from fellow Elecraft has been great.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment
