Great manual !  Time owned: more than 12 months
This book picks up where the manual leaves off and gives you a very complete understanding of the K3's design and operation.
The original K3 manual gives you the basic sometimes superficial overview of how to operate the K3 but lacks sufficient detail to give full understanding. This manual is written clearly and easy to follow. With 280 pages compared to the Elecraft's manual with 83 pages, that should give you a clue..................

Get the most from your K3!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
One could argue that if you need such a book to understand your radio, you either a. have a radio that's too complicated or b. don't know enough about radio to own a K3! Well, the author simply helps transform a person who might just be an appliance operator to someone who can understand and appreciate a state of the art radio such as the K3. I highly recommend all K3 owners to buy this book!

Written to be useful & used!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I've done a lot of technical writing (and reading) in my career and hobbies. I don't think I have ever owned a book written in such a useful format. I'm not an expert on the Elecraft K-3 but I can say that my setup and first uses of that fine radio is much easier as a consequence of having purchased the download of this book.
The download version is printable, not that you would need to print many of the 288 pages. However, you can search, annotate and highlight the PDF version. Print only what you like or need.
Highly recommended, especially for the new K-3 owner.
