    Here's an interesting new product that Elecraft is now taking orders for: The K3/0 Remote Control Rig. Here is the description from Elecraft's web site:




    Here is a diagram showing the entire setup:

    Pretty cool idea! This solution also requires the purchase of a RemoteRig which can also be purchased from Elecraft, shown below (Yaesu version pictured)

    Wayne from Elecraft has stated publicly that they are also going to explore the idea of enable the KX3 to act as a remote rig interface for the K3.

    Lastly, here is a video with Eric from Elecraft explaining the whole setup:

    The entire solution is not inexpensive, however. The K3/0 is about $700 and the RemoteRig is about $500.
