Difference

Gary Travis Roberts
Is there a difference between and early version of the K3 and a later version?  Just wondering if it is not updatable, etc.

Check the website for mods and I think you'll find that virtually all the hardware mods and updates can be added to every vintage K3 up to April of 2015 when it was replaced by the K3S.

Yes, all K3's can be upgraded to the  point where the K3s was introduced.
My K3 S/N 0056 has been updated to the last configuration available.

...and many of the improvements in the K3S can be retrofitted into a K3.
Elecraft has been superb in maintaining compatibility through its product
evolution.

Ant2 dumb question

w5sum
I'm trying to finish up my 5BDXCC all I lack, of course, is 80M. I'm sitting
at 50 confirmed as of this morning.  I have a 80M fullwave loop
up that is a great rx antenna but its height is only 40' so it really
doesn't have the low angle of radiation I need to really reach out and touch
those far contacts.
So, I've started building a Inverted L with a folded counterpoise for 80M

My thoughts are, that I will use the L for transmitting and the loop for rx.
However, I'm worried about induced RF getting back into my K3 ( which
I received about 2 weeks before the K3S came out GRRRRRRRRRR).  I burned up
a HRO60 Rx like that once.

Does anyone know if Ant 2 is automatically disconnected or grounded when Ant
1 is in transmit mode?

Thanks in advance

Ronnie W5SUM
