Might as well get some use out of the videos I made.
With very limited experience I rate the KX3 as having the best Audi of the transceivers I have owned. I have had more time with this radio this week and the audio both in and out is quite nice. Amazingly I have had nice QSOs with even 10watts SSB.
There are other issues though with this radio they are working on that we have not talked about. VFO drift is significant enough to cause issues running PSK. I hadn't realize that the KX3 is advertised as only 1ppm, you can see it in PSK. They are working on it and some people already have the VFO temperature controlled patch in hand. Final performance is supposedly going to be .1-.2 ppm.
It's interesting to see just how many things Elecraft is able to change in the firmware to resolve issues like this. There are going to be improvements in opposite side band suppression as well.
If you buy one of these your buying and unfinished radio in essence.
Ayways, it did occur to me that when you sell a transceiver to hams today, you better have your specs and stuff together because hams are going to test the living tar out of it!
. Given that it's amazing that many radios still get the ratings they do.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nv9oNxdqyH4&sns=em
Unfortunately the cell phone mic is the limiting factor here and the source of any distortion you here with the exception of my audio being played back which was not all that great to be honest.
I guess I haven't been a ham long enough to understand the reallity of audio fatigue if this radio in theory can cause it. I even listend to some shortwave stations Monday and they sounded really good.
