Elecraft KX3s are starting to ship. The first one, ordered on December 27, has left the building.
I got my order confirmation early on December 28 but from what I can tell from the newsgroup, that means I might have thousands of orders in front of mine.
By all accounts this rig seems like a very modern, power efficient, technically advanced HF transceiver that is set to replace the FT-817 around here.
Elecraft has slipped a bit but their communication has been first class and customers like me feel informed and respectful of the quality job they have done bringing a complex new product to market under the bright lights of the internet.
