K3 manual .pdf edit requests

k5oai
Along with the recently discussed MENU/MIC SEL Button 7 change, from the
incorrect Button 3 as stated in the manual on pg 52.


here is another update that would be welcome:
pg 40 says:

The U.S. 60-meter channel assignments
correspond to VFO settings of 5330.5, 5346.5,
5366.5, 5371.5, and 5403.5 kHz. USB is the only
mode allowed on this band.

I think the new frequencies are as follows:
5330.5, 5346.5, 5357.0, 5371.5, and 5403.5 kHz.

The last sentence also needs to be updated.  Permitted emissions are now
USB, CW, and "RTTY," however the FCC's bandwidth limitation on "RTTY"
really means PSK31 and other narrow band digital modes, not 170 Hz 45.5
baud FSK.

But bearing mind this applies to the USA.  As the K3 is marketed worldwide,  maybe all other countries' allocations should be included too.

Not true ... if 2K80J2D is permitted *any* J2D mode (including 45.45
baud AFSK) with a bandwidth *less than* 2800 Hz would also be permitted.
  Traditional RTTY (170 H shift, 45.45 baud) can be equally
described as 370H0F1D, 370H0F1B, 370H0J2D or 370H0J2B depending on
whether it is generated as AFSK or FSK and whether the content is
generalized data or data meant for on screen display (automatic
detection).

Re: K3 manual .pdf edit requests

k6dgw
I think I stand corrected.  When it was first discussed by ARRL, I got
the impression that any digital mode was confined to PSK-ish bandwidths.
  Looking up the current FCC regs, 2K80J2D is permitted, so 45.5 baud
170 Hz shift RTTY would also be permitted.  I guess 2K80J2D is Pactor-3?

Given that we have moved from "A1"=Morse Telegraphy, "A2"=Audio
Modulated Morse Telegraphy, and "A3"=AM Voice to 7, 8, and more
characters in an emission type designator, it's not surprising that it
got very complex.

Side gripe-ette:  I was sorry when ecfr.gov stopped publishing the
entire Part in PDF.

Great idea Joe,

I downloaded the free CutePDF and Cute Writer program  at
http://www.cutepdf.com/
and then went to the link you sent and did a Print to CutePDF and now have a
PDF version.

Re: K3 needing power on -off cycling to recover settings.

HankP
May be operator error .

I have my SSB+CW  set up to be able to use key to generate  a cw signal  to
tweak amp into dummy load after large in band freq excursions , very handy.

 But VERY often that ability is gone and just recycling power resets the
function.

I have NOT tapped the "1" key- at least not on the band it is not working ,
don't recall tapping the "1" key on any band last night chasing the VK9MT
from12 to 17 meters .

Is this function saved/ recalled by band ?

While on the subject  is it possible to have SSB+CW on VFOB when split ?

Hank K7HP
