More 3K dope

Well I spent more time with the 3K today, and the radio is fantastic. I wrote a EHAM review if you are interested.

After putting this thing through its paces, I can't find really any difference between the 5K and the 3K in terms of its general performance. The receiver is hot. The TX audio is superb. I had a little flex radio pile up going on 40M for a while last night. What a hoot!! I'm a CW op and don't do much phone and certainly no pile ups so it was kind of exhilarating.

My general conclusion is for the money, or for a guy who wants the most bang for the buck radio, or you are on a budget, you can't do better than this. I'm impressed!
