This feature captures a keyed call sign for use in the log and the rest of QSO.

And creating a Grab & Go message is as simple as adding a “@” at the start of the message.

Frequency and mode are automatically populated in the log, as is date and time.
The KLG displays text that has been decoded by your KX3 and K3 in CW, RTTY, and PSK modes on a 80 character LCD display. The LCD is sunlight readable and has an adjustable backlight for night ops. It will run outdoors for 50 hours on an internal 9 volt battery.Interfacing
The KLG can be used without a keyboard to send CW, RTTY, and PSK text by using a CW paddle. The decoded text will still display on the KLG’s LCD when a paddle is used, with scrolling enabled using the Mode 1 button. Pre-stored messages can be selected and sent using the Mode 2 button when using a paddle, perfect for CQing and contesting. Keyboard-less Operations! The paddle can be used in place of the keyboard, using special mode keys on the KLG unit.
Can Use a Standard Keyboard
The KLG uses a standard PC keyboard to enable you to send text in CW, RTTY, and PSK modes as well as to control the KLG.
The keyboard can be used to create, edit, and store up to ten 80 character messages that are accessed via the Function keys on the keyboard for immediate transmission. These messages can be chained to make even longer messages.
The keyboard can be used to create, edit and store up to ten 80 character rig macros for controlling the KX2, KX3 and K3. For example, a rig macro can instantly change band, frequency, mode, filters, power, etc. without touching any controls on the rig.
The KLG has a logging function with a real time clock to time/date stamp up to 1000 QSOs. The frequency and mode are automatically added by polling the rig. A call sign feature allows you to enter a call sign that not only goes into the log, but will insert itself into a message anywhere you place a “!”, similar to popular contest logging programs. Text can be entered to add QSO details. The log data is exported to a PC or Mac in the standard ADIF format using the free QRPworks ADIF Utility application. The KLG can be used as a stand-alone portable logging device.
An instant QSY command on the keyboard allows the direct entry of any frequency and mode. Much faster and easier than pressing buttons on the rig.
On Screen Help
The KLG has an on screen Help display that shows every available command in a scrollable list, so you can leave the manual at home.
