Thanks all! My order from Elecraft is the following:
Factory-Assembled and Tested KX3
KX3-PCKT Accessory Cable Set
KXFL3 Roofing Filter
KXPA100 Amplifier Factory-Assembled and Tested
KXPACBL Amp-to-KX3 Cable
MH3 Hand Mic
I disregarded the auto-tuner for the amp because I already have a pretty good LDG external auto-tuner that I like well. Also didn't bother with the charger/clock as the only real portable work I plan to be doing is either Field Day (where I'll have generators) or when I'm camping at the lake (where I can either use AC in the campground, or my 4 17Ah batteries). I figure if I find a need for either option, I can always add it in later. Don't figure I need the panadapter, as I can use the SDR functionality with either my laptop or desktop to substitute for that.
Mostly I'm looking for what third-party accessories people are using - I really like the SideKX endplates and Lexan cover to give it some protection (also plan to get a nice Pelican case to transport it in). The heatsink's are looking good too, as I am somewhat a fan of doing digital modes. Also would like to either be able to use my existing Heil gear (if it will work, and from some of the reading I'm doing, it may not), or other good quality headset and desk microphone (I really dislike using a hand mic for base station use).

|I agree...the ATU and the filter is a must...see my articles in May and June CQ. I also just added 2M. |

:Re: [4sqrp] Elecraft afficionados, talk to me!
I have every option with my KX3. I don't have the KXPA100, since the
KX3 is my QRP rig.
In my particular use of the KX3 the roofing filter is a great
addition to the radio. Also the ATU is absolutely amazing.

As I mentioned in this month's Banner, WA6CML has finally
let me take the plunge and pick up the KX3+KXPA100 I've
of getting since my first Ozarkcon (getting to go hands on
KX3 was a big seller!). However, since I'm just starting
to dive into
the Elecraft world, I'm wanting some suggestions on some
those of you who have been using the rig. So, a few
First off, microphones - I have ordered the hand-mike, but
I also have
a couple of Heil microphones - a GM-5 desk microphone and
headset that I use when I'm contesting. I am terrible at
adapter cables (would much prefer to buy something
pre-made in this
regard), and Heil does not make cables for the KX-3 - so
know of somewhere I could get an adapter to use these with
Second, what third-party accessories would those of you
recommend? I'm already planning on the SideKX cover from
probably the Pro Audio Engineering heatsink. Anything else
think is essential?
