Introducing the Elecraft K3S 160-6 m Transceiver: Higher Performance, Many New Features The Elecraft K3 set the standard for compact, high-performance transceivers, proving to be ideal for DXpeditions, multi-transmitter contesting, Field Day, and home stations alike. With the secondgeneration K3S, we’ve raised the bar once again, upgrading nearly every subsystem.
Improvements include: Enhanced look and feel, with new LCD bezel, soft-touch VFO knob Ultra low-noise synthesizer for exceptional strong-signal receive performance and transmit signal purity (KSYN3A) USB port—integrates remote control and line-level audio, eliminating the need for a PC sound card and audio cables Second preamp for 12-6 m weak signal work (on included KXV3B module)
Multiple attenuators, providing steps of -5/-10/-15 dB Lower-Loss ATU option with true bypass relay (KAT3A) Redesigned AF output circuitry for outstanding speaker audio
Accurate, high-speed CW transmit even in SPLIT mode Coverage of the 630-meter band (~470 kHz), and lower1 Superhet / SDR Architecture The K3S delivers the best of both worlds: a hybrid of softwaredefined radio (SDR) technology and our proven, high-dynamic range superhet receive architecture.
The optional KRX3 highperformance, fully independent sub receiver offers true diversity operation to reduce fading. 32-bit DSP provides stereo effects, NR, EQ, notch, and built-in PSK31/CW/RTTY decode/encode. 100-Watt or Upgradeable 10-Watt Model Choose from two models: the K3S/100 or K3S/10. The K3S/10, which can be easily upgraded to a K3S/100 at any time, offers the same exciting features and performance at lower cost.
P3 Panadapter now with Transmit Monitoring The P3’s bright, full-color LCD has both spectral and waterfall displays, and new optional TX metering and signal envelope monitoring.
The P3 has a faster sweep rate and better sensitivity than most built-in panadapters. Tap to QSY to any signal. Companion 500-W Amplifier and Antenna Tuner The K3S and P3 are members of our fully integrated K-Line.
Rounding out the K-Line are our KPA500 solid-state amplifier and matching KAT500 ATU, both of which can be used with nearly any transceiver. When used with the K3S, the amp and ATU track the rig’s band and VFO, so you’ll be ready wherever DX appears. Add 2 Meters with our K144XV Internal Option Expand coverage to 144-148 MHz with the K144XV and operate FM, SSB, CW and Data modes on 2 Meters. Remote Operation via the K3/0-Mini Control Panel If your Elecraft K-Line station is at a remote location, you can still operate it from anywhere in the world using our K3/0-Mini control panel.
The Mini duplicates all K3S controls, providing a virtually seamless operating experience over any Ethernet connection. By logging into RemoteHams.com, you can even use the Mini to access other K-Line stations. Many of these offer ideal DX locations, and have high-performance, all-band antenna farms. Factory Assembled or No-Soldering Kit All modules are pre-assembled and 100% tested, ensuring identical performance whether you purchase your K3S factory assembled or build it yourself — saving money in the process. The easy-to-build kit version does not require soldering. Legendary Customer Support Elecraft is committed to customer satisfaction (just ask our customers).
