Better get one before summer gets here!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
If you operate digital modes on your KX3 at more than 3 watts, you won't get far. It will overheat quickly and shutdown. If you operate outdoors in high 90 to 100 degree temps, you will either need to shade your KX3, use 3w max, operate infrequently at 5-12w, or install this heatsink and not worry about overheating issues at all.

Fred is a customer service oriented guy, is easy to communicate with and responsive.

The packing/shipping is very good and it comes with nice long bolts that fit through the pre-drilled fins into the stock holes. It also comes with a hex wrench for installation. All you have to do is take out the stock philips screws, catch the lock nuts on the inside of the KX3 case to use with the new bolts.

I tried making my own heatsink but Fred's is much better. I got the black anodized heatsink and it looks great on the KX3. 
Product is in production.
