K-3 4629

RALPH TURK
Just got my K3 back from the factory.  Everything that I have tested works correctly.

This week I say a email referring to Pre Amp 1 and 2.  I can't find anything in the manual

so far.  Are there such items or am I not interpreting that email correctly.  I should have saved

it but I didn't.

I also should state that I am very new to the K3.  Have only had for two weeks.  Was from a estate

sale.


Thanks

Ralph, W7HSG

Ralph,

If I may suggest, download and read the manual from the Elecraft web
site, if you haven't already. Also, get a copy of Fred Cady's, K7EX,
excellent book on the K3. It will help you understand the ins and outs
of your transceiver.

Also, the two pre-amps are new to the K3S, if I remember correctly. Our
older-generation K3s don't have them.

Enjoy your new rig! I love mine!

73 de,

Ian, KM4IK
K3 #281

The K3 has Preamp 1 and 2 on 6 - 17 meters if you install/upgrade to the
KXV3B transverter interface.

Ralph,

Look at the K3S manual for the Preamp1 and preamp2 operation.  It only
applies to the K3S and a K3 with the KXV3B upgrade.

Are there really two preamps or just a two step gain setting?

Re: K-3 4629

Cady, Fred-2
There are actually 3 preamps.  20 db (17m - 6m only) in the KXV3B and a 10 db in the main and a 10 db in the sub.

Cheers,

Fred KE7X

Looks like there's a discount on Fred's book. I think that's a great
thing to get if you don't have it already. I have two of them (two
different versions.)
