OHHHHHH, you've done it now!!!
You have went and talked nicely about
three radios that EVERYONE knows are
just plain junk!!
Just kidding! I have a Flex 1500 and enjoy
using it too. And at some point I'd like to
add a 3000 to my collection.
As for the KX3, it looks like a neat radio.
But, I am not quite to the point I want one.
I recently bought a Yaesu FT-1000MP MKV and
am having way too much fun with it at the moment!
Good luck and enjoy your radios. They all have their
pluses and minuses.
