If I choose, I can upgrade my K3.  This backward compatibility is something Bill Gates learned a long time ago and made millions off the idea.  With the ham market being limited as it is and the fact that hams are cheap, I don't know how these companies turn a profit.  As far as Elecraft customer service, they like TenTec are top shelf.

You can partially update the K3. But believe its not feasible to turn a K3 into a K3S. Close but no ceeegar.

Not sure where the hams are cheap got started. .... News flash, talk to an electrician, plumber, or HVAC tech. Homeowners are cheap, restaurant owners are cheap, friends and family are cheap, its all around you.

No, Hams really are Cheap!  Try to charge a typical Ham $50 for parts (with digikey receipt in hand) on a free repair job of their transceiver and the moaning is so loud it's like you shot them with a Gun!  Christ if my plumber came in and installed a new bath tub and only handed me the home depot receipt I would be breaking out the Beer Grin
