KX3 - now may be THE time to buy!

Wow!

Keeping an eye on the QRP reflectors, it seems that KX2 mania has seriously taken hold (and Hamvention has just barely begun!). If you don't mind having a "previously owned" (read ......used) KX3, then keep your eyes on QRP-L, the Elecraft reflector, QRZ.COM and eHam over the next few weeks.

I see a few guys are already selling off their KX3s so that they can purchase a KX2. Not sure if this will become a trend, or of the wisdom of it, but then I am not yet a SOTAteer, either. The additional size and weight of the KX3 are not sticking points for the type of portable ops that I do.  But for some, especially those who do long hikes, I guess it is a case of "smaller and lighter = better".

In any event, if you're looking ...... you just might find that for which you are seeking.

    Our facebook group “selfless” is spending this month spreading awareness on prostate cancer & research with a custom t-shirt design. Purchase proceeds will go to cancer.org, as listed on the shirt and shirt design.

  3. Good morning Larry, that is a very good insight for sure and I will say all ham social media was all about the KX2 for sure. I think Yaesu missed the boat by not introducing a replacement to there legend FT-817 rig. As for me I'm holding onto my KX3 rig.
    73 and have a great week

  4. I just ordered mine today. Don't have a KX3 to sell, but I think my Flex 1500 is going on the block. I can't bear to part with my KX1, I'm very sentimental about things I build with my own hands. Especially when they work. :-)
