Seems like a fast way to undercut sales of the K3 unless I misunderstand what the KX3 is all about.

Depends on the contest and the AA cells :)

RX-mode current drain ~150 mA. Very efficient on TX, with dual-output-
impedance 5W/10W PA.

The optional 100W amp is in an external chassis.  The internal amplifier
is 10W with switchable impedance matching so it can also operate with
maximum efficiency at 5W.

PA output impedance switch allows efficient 5-W use from internal  
batteries, or 10 W from external supply.

100 W+ with new high-performance external amp/ATU that works with most  
5W to 10W rigs.

And it makes use of EVERY display on that LCD??  Carumba!

Is it a full kit or a final assembly type like the K3?

Care to put us in the ballpark on the price?

Not quite.  I think there are a couple annunciators that are not used.
But it's amazing that the design team managed to fit almost all the
features of a 10W K3 into a box that is a small fraction of the size and
weight.  And with space left over for an internal battery pack!

By the time we're done, we'll be using every icon.

Totally different architecture than the K3, of course.

Much less.

The MOSFET 10-W amp stage includes an output transformer with both 1:4  
and 1:1 windings. When using low power, or when running from internal  
batteries, the 1:1 winding is used, which optimizes efficiency at  
about 5 W, greatly reducing transmit current drain. The 1:4 winding is  
used when running higher power (using an external supply).

> One email said 10w/100w models. Is that correct?

The 1.5-pound radio itself puts out 10 watts+. We'll also be  
describing a new, high-performance 100-watt+ companion amplifier/ATU  
for fixed-station/mobile use. It will work very well with other 5 to  
10-W radios besides the KX3.
