Great Speaker Microphoner for KX2 and KX3  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I purchased my AlexMic at the Dayton (Xenia) Hamvention in May from Alex, PY1AHD. It is both a microphone and amplified speaker; and it is a terrific addition in use with my KX2 and KX3 with their limited speaker audio capabilities. It has great audio in both transmit and receive and its internal lithium battery last up to 8 hrs and recharges rapidly using a standard 5v USB charging cable (supplied) and 5v source from computer, wall wart, or battery.

KX2/KX3 Speaker Improvement  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I love my KX3. But the internal speaker, while adequate, could use some help. The AlexMic's microphone works just like the Elecraft MH3. But the AlexMic also includes an amplified speaker that puts out 2W peak audio power, and the audio sounds great. An internal lithium battery lasts about 8-hours and recharges in about 2-hours with the mic's internal USB smart charger (USB charging cable included). A great accessory for the KX2/KX3.

Excellent accessory  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The Elecraft KX3 is an excellent radio, incredible performance at field, but my only complaint about this little radio is the speaker quality, so I always preferred to operate with headphones, so when I saw that the Alexmic is a mic and also an amplified speaker I bought it immediately, the mic has an excellent performance, you don't need to adjust your TX EQ for a quality and punching signal, and the speaker lets you adjust the volume to hear the signals very clear at field or at your shack. The speaker could be recharged with a USB 5W cable with any telephone or tablet charger. Finally thanks Alex for the initiative to solve this issue for this amazing radio.

A great add-on for your portable gears!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This MIC is a great addition to my portable gears! The microphone is connected directly into both transceiver mic and earphone connectors. That way, the audio is now completely rerouted to the amplified speaker microphone. We have to admit that the internal speaker system into a KX3 or a KX2 is in some way quite limited… but that’s ok… we all want a small transceiver form factor.

The audio response is between 200 Hz and 8 kHz and weight only 200g. With a maximum 2.5W audio output, it will let you hear anything more easily by having it nearer to your ears. The user also has the possibility to connect a pair of small earphone directly beneat the microphone body. A 3.5mm mono connector is located beside the mic cord. A blue LED indicates that the device is indeed turned on, and becomes purple when charging.

This speaker microphone performance is actually well welcome by the Elecraft team and active users. It represents an excellent addition to all portable solutions for people using an Elecraft KX2 or KX3 in the field.

For a price at 125$ USD, it really worths it. The lack of audio when being portable is now easily solved with this nice piece of equipment.
