[K3] RX ant without KXV3?

Ilya
Hi mates!

Is there a way to connect an RX antenna without using a KXV3 option?
I've got an IF-output socket connected directly to P86 on RF board on one
of my K3's, maybe there is a similar way for an RX ant?

Thanks and 73!
Ilya R3XA

Will include manual and examples of programming.

$200 shipped CONUS via USPS Priority Mail - will take PayPal or Postal
Money Order.

thanks 73 Dwight NS9I

Hi Ilya,

This might be possible. Take a look at it he K3 schematics. Before I found a KXV3 I was considering this, certainly the IF out.

As I recall on the main board there is a connector with the rf in and out. These are jumpered on the main board when no KXV3is fitted.

Then there should be a control signal to switch the relays for rx antenna routing.

I think if you are reasonably technically proficient you can produce a way to make this work for you. You can probably do away with the relays if you use a jumper or manual switch when you don’t want the rx in-outfunction.

Martin, HS0ZED

Fantastic Service

 I just had an excellent call with Bruce from Elecraft service. While discussing the issue with my KPA500 we also drifted into the K4. 
That sounds like the perfect radio for myself. Now to somehow convince the CFO and chief cookie counter

Re: Fantastic Service

Bill Frantz
I don't think so. We're discussing how to convince a non-ham SO
to be willing to allow expenditures on things that totally
disinterest them.

There is at least one person who has posted on this list that he
and his SO have an, "equal money for hobbies" agreement, and he
needed to spend some money to even things out.

In my case, my wife is a ham, but not interested in radio
technology. She just, "Wants it to work" and does mostly emcom.
She is interested in fiber arts, so I'm the local spinning wheel
mechanic. I knit as a part of keeping the relationship together.
(And to have socks that fit.) I once knit her a sweater using
yarn that she had spun, if that's not too self-referencial. She
doesn't complain when I spend money on ham radio stuff, but I
try to be reasonable.

But make sure you have 2 Stations in the shack.

Or you won't never ever have to ask her about buying ham gear. But you
have to ask for playing the radio. ;-)

Re: [K3] RX ant without KXV3?

In reply to this post by Martin Sole-3
There are two jumpers on J66 (either wire ones in the socket,,, OR on
OLD boards, you cut jumpers on the RF board).
See schematic and see the silk screen for jumpers W1 & W2

It is nice to have a receiver there because it bypasses the LPF
circuitry, a MUST for Lowfer operation!
I jack IN there for testing boards.
**Remember the TX goes thru that too, so you would have to manage that too.

HOWEVER:
I have upgraded MANY radios to the new KXV3B, so there are PLENTY of
folks that have their old KXV3 boards!
You might also need:
Escutcheon E100224SS
Two longer bolts E700177
Might as well get the IF out cable too E850292

Needle point is also very good.  It's kept my "radio account" healthy
for years, and we have always had an Equal Hobby Allowance policy.

I received a reply from Rob in Elecraft Service about the encoders on my

knobs at no cost!
Fantastic Service!!  The reason I have a K1, (had)K2, K3, KX3, period!
