Default KX3 Questions

After looking over all the prerelease material and pictures,I am very impressed but I still have two questions that maybe someone who went to Dayton can answer. Does the receiver have general coverage in addition to HF ham bands? Will will be a solder kit, no solder kit, or sold assembled? 73 Mike KF6KXG

Well Close enough I guess

general coverage from 1.6-30 MHz

(optional broadcast-band filter module covers 0.5-1.6 kHz)
And REALLY?!?!?!?

Accessory/RS232 port for computer control using supplied cable
RS232 Port????? !!! New radio deserves new technology! Can you even buy a new computer with an RS232? Sure you can buy an adapter, but why?

I sent an email to Elecraft not expecting a reply, I was wrong,

Quote:
We use a TTL/RS232 interface for the KX3 (like many of our other small products) because USB requires far more parts (which won't fit) and generates a lot of RFI (especially audible on the low bands).

However, we're very likely to be offering two different KX3-to-PC cables: one that goes to RS232, and one that goes straight to USB.
That works for me, one less thing to buy
