Very convenient  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I am using the Pigknob with my K3 and it is great!

On a thin ribbon wire, I can sit back in my easy chair and use the control for everything that I normally have to reach across the desk for: a 2-speed VFO for fast SSB tuning and slow CW tuning, three frequency memories (I only use 160/80/40 and each memory has an LSB frequency and a CW frequency), VFO A/B (select between the SSB or CW frequency in each memory), mute/unmute, WBZ News from Boston, and auto-notch toggle.

It is very easy to configure the Pigknob using a terminal program (I use Putty) - then take the computer off the radio desk - it is no longer needed.

The Pigknob was shipped via 2-day USPS and took about ten minutes to initially get going. Speed and ease is in the air. It is easy to configure and does what it is advertised to do. Simple to use - like sliced bread!
