Re: K3 EZ

Hi John,
It makes it very easy to adjust/tweak settings in the K3, rather than using the buttons on the radio itself.

Hi John

The K3 EZ provides user friendly access to many of the features in K3 (and I
believe in K3s) from a Windows computer.

Band stacking, memories, equalizers, info about settings, general
configuration, RX configuration, TX configuration, AGC setup, a command
utility, scanning of a band measuring SWR every 10 kHz (as I remember) plus
setup for the K3 EZ itself.

All very handy. It depends on your needs which of the functions you will be
using.

K3 EZ utility

Thanks to Mark, WB9CIF, I've got the last three releases of K3_EZ

Re: K3 EZ utility

N7US
Here's another location with all three:

https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B-V-5Vmska0HcHlpQ01jM01zRjQ&usp=shar
ing

The latest one has some improvements, but has a bug, which I don't remember.
The automatic SWR curve generation is very cool, and I like the ease of
testing different RX and TX EQ settings which can be saved.  I have 2005 and
2008 installed.  The file naming is interesting, as the K3 was introduced at
Visalia in 2007, I think.

The developer, W2BC, was in declining health, and I see the call has been
reassigned, so I assume he's a SK.  I corresponded with him several times,
and he was cordial and helpful.

You can save screenshots of each screen after you scan the radio for each
one.

I use a microKEYER II with my K3 but have an A/B switch to bypass the MKII
and connect the K3 directly to a serial port (actually a Gearmo USB adapter)
when using this program or the K3 Utility program.

Re: K3 EZ

In reply to this post by KE8G
Has anyone been able to get K3 EZ running in Linux with WINE?  I use Mint for my primary OS and would like to use K3 EZ there.  I have Win 10 dual booted and can run K# EZ there but would prefer to use it on Mint.  I am able to extract the file and it seems to start to run with WINE with a brief flash of a loading window but then it disappears.

Any help?

I know you need to have the MS.Net Framework installed to run K3 EZ

I received a warning when I downloaded all three Zip files, about their
possibly containing malware.

Did anyone else experience this?

Re: K3 EZ

bhemmis
Time for me to throw in a pitch for the Win4K3 Suite. Best 50 buck investment you can make. I started with K3 EZ (free is good) but soon moved to Win4K3 and never looked back. The suite is constantly evolving. No annual update fee. Works with both K3 & KX3. You can put it on unlimited number of computers and Tom is always there for tech support. Buy yourself a Christmas present ! BTW- you can try a free demo before you pull out your plastic !
I have no connection with Tom or Win4K3-just a really happy customer.

Re: K3 EZ

Jerry
Hello Jim,

My bet is that someone on the web site where you made the download, wants to
sell you anti-malware which is probably malware in itself. It's the "tactic
of the day". My advice, stay away from the "free" stuff on the internet. It
is not like the young lady says in the commercial "They can't lie on the
internet, can they?"

Best regards,

Jerry, W1IE

I have  MS.Net installed but I think it may be that I am 64 bit but K3 EZ is 32 bit.  I'll keep working on it.

If you are using Norton, then things like that are to be expected.
Norton uses a "useless" algorithm - if it has not had experience with
the files, it flags them as possibly having malware.

Beware painting with too broad a brush.  There's "free" and there's
"free."
