Today I started assembling the new K3S Transceiver from ELECRAFT. I used a K3/100 since 2013 on Holidays. In April 2013 I have bought a K3/100 as a kit. Assembling was easy. Performance is outstanding. That was a good reason to buy the new K3S for the shack as a kit again. Since 2009 an Icom 756 PRO III is doing a great Job and therefore I am not in a hurry. It took me 4 hours to pass the Front Panel Assembly Procedure.
