Maybe you will need only a loupe.
...and some time to re(re)ad the manual several times. Then, the elmer will be yourself.

I think your correct. I think I have the rig pretty well figured out and am really accustomed to menu driven systems so shouldn't be any big deal. The receiver numbers look very impressive so I'm really excited about that. Last rig was a TS940 and it looks like the kx3 has a better receiver than it did. I thought it was a good receiver.

I've had a TS940, a 950, a TR7, later decided to go QRP +/-portable, so I  got a K2, a KX1, and finally the KX3 : these are real little wonders.
The only thing I can't tell you is about crowded local conditions, for I have been using the KX3 in a particularly clean environment (grid BH91nv), and will do it again ;-)
For sure, you'll have a lot of fun.
