The K3/Ø-Mini is a Remote Control Head for the K3 Transceiver at Dayton Hamvention 2013
- Two RemoteRig RRC-1258MkII (picture below) units that provide the interface to the internet; one for the remote location and one for the local (control) location
- RRMTCBL cable set to connect the remote RRC-1258 unit to the remote K3.
- K3/Ø Remote control Head (Test at Dayton Hamvention 2013 )
- RRK0CBL cable set to connect a local K3/0 as the controller.
- RRK3CBL cable set to connect a local K3 as the controller.
When paired with the RemoteRig internet control system (also sold by Elecraft®) this K3 Remote system can connect your local K3 or K3/Ø to a remote K3 over the internet, including transmit and receive audio, without the need or complexity of setting up computers on each end. The K3 Remote system provides a real radio feel with immediate control feedback and very fast response times.

One aspect of KX3 mobile installation and operation that is emphasized in this Guide is safety. – This Guide’s scope covers only installations in vehicles that have negative ground electrical systems. etc. (Download the PDF and Read more)
KAT500 Auto-Tuner & Smart Antenna Switch - (Source Elecraft ®)
The new KAT500 uses the same topology and performance tuning algorithms as the 100W autotuner in the K3. Typical matching range at 500 W is up to 10:1 on most bands.
Frequency Typical Matching Range and Power Limit:
1.8 — 2MHz 600W into 10 to 500 Ohms (5:1 Low Impedance, 10:1 High Impedance SWR) / 3 — 30 MHz 600W into 5 to 500 Ohms (10:1 SWR) / 1000W into 16 to 150 Ohms (3:1 SWR ) / 1000W into 16 to 150 Ohms (3:1 SWR ) and 30 — 60MHz 500W into 5:1 SWR (10 to 250 Ohms)
The KAT500 measures transmit frequency to automatically select tuning memories and antennas – The KAT500 can tune with 10 W but we recommend 20 W to 100 W for best tuning accuracy – The KAT500 has a front panel SWR display and three selectable antenna outputs. -

Ritornano i Kit per assemblare apparati radio come ai vecchi tempi. La Marconi Japan Co, Ltd ha presentato alla Expo di Dayton Hamvention 2008 un Ricevitore HF RX-1 e un Trasmettitore HF in Cw TX-1, realizzati anche con pannelli di vario colore: Bianco, Grigio, Rosa! Saranno disponibili in Kit con soluzioni tecniche di preparazione che renderanno facile il montaggio, per divertirsi ad autocostruirli.
ENG: HF Receiver ”Marconi RX1“ and HF CW Transmitter “Marconi TX1“ will be exhibited in Dayton Hamvention on May 16-18, 2008; the MARCONI company, have developed and finally brought up a unit in a style of “KIT FORM” in order to solve all these troblesome: Ready-made necessary holes provided in the casing; Panel pre-imprinted; Provided with dial structute; Provided with all parts necessary. This KIT unit from MARCONI is highly recommended to let you fully enjoy for fabrication of your own radio.All what is needed to be done is to work on the pattern of your circuitry and assemble. As the case itself is design with enough spacing, new features can be added at each time its need arises. And, as the circuitry can be changed and improved the way it is wanted,there is a grand pride of being a ownerships of a unit that nobody-else has the same of its kind in the world.
