Re: DTMF Tones on the K3

Joe Subich, W4TV-4

Pick up a Kenwood MC-48, move the brown wire from pin 5 to pin 5 in the
mic connector and be done with it.

Overloading the K3/K3S front panel buttons with yet a *third* function
is a recipe for disaster.

I agree with Joe, but there is a typo - the brown wire should end up on
pin 6.

Many thanks, Joe and Don, for that useful information which I shall keep
in mind.  I would, however, like to continue using my D104 microphone
with which I receive outstanding good quality reports.

I'm probably going to regret sending this and this is just my opinion.

It seems to me using the K3 as a V/UHF FM rig is akin to using a
Thoroughbred race horse to pull a manure spreader.
Yeah....it'll do it but there are better tools to use.
One thing the Japanese are better at is designing inexpensive, full
featured V/UHF FM gear.

K3 and my Yaesu FT-8900 sitting next to each other and I want to
blah,blah,blah on the local repeater. The Yaesu will get used
99.9999995% of the time.
Sorry Elecraft....you aren't even in the neighborhood on this one.

work and 6 meters (easily drives my LDMOS SSPA to 1 KW.

…unless you are digging weak signals out of the moon using it as an IF rig. Never such as thing as too much performance in an IF rig. I can see why EME-ers just want a little bit more. One of my Elmers, Al, W0PUF and I participated in the 1995 ARRL EME Contest with a Scientific Atlanta 10m dish spec’d for 4 GHz and a TS-700SP/HB amp with a pair of 4CX250Bs with an Ameco Rx conveter with no pre-amp…and got five QSOs from the W0BLK Club station out near Ellsworth AFB in Box Elder, SD. Worked the big guns only, like Al, WB5LUA and KB8RQ to name two. Ah, memories…I remember when we were working on the feed in the bird bath mode and a flock of migrating Sand Hill cranes were going south for the winter in formation directly overhead. I was in the focal point of that 30 foot dish and told Al on my HT to watch the flock as I made some noise. So Al got out the door in time to hear me issue some vocal shotgun blasts, “BOOM, BOOM, BOOM!” I shouted and be darned if they didn’t scatter…Awesome. They were way up there, like 10,000 feet maybe, who knows but I could hear them as if they were right there, trumpeting away. I miss Al.
