right now, this is about as close as you can get, compare how small the transceiver is compared to the guys hand, and in the other picture, compared to the Microphone.
The KX3's current drain is low enough that it can function well with |
an extremely light battery pack (8 AA cells, internally, or your
choice of external batteries). We went with AA cells because of their
flexibility and ubiquity. You can always borrow some from other
electronic devices in a pinch. You can power the radio for 5-10 hours
of typical transceive operation or 16 hours receive-only from a set of
nonrechargeable lithium camera batteries. Or you can use NiMH, with
the internal charger keeping them ready to go.
Note that the KX3 will have an effective SSB |
clipper/compressor/processor to give an average of at least 6 dB of
"talk power" without significant impairment of the speech quality,
making 10W seem like 25 or more to the receiving station.
And the little thing that looks like some kind of bracket on the bottom???
That is the paddles for CW.( Option)

NASA/SOHO When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown,
The dream is gone.
but I have become comfortably numb.
