    Elecraft sent a pre-release 4 meter optional add-on board to Peter Waters of Waters & Stanton for testing in the U.K. Watch below as he makes the first QSO in the world on the new KX3 option:

    Gee Tim, I was just about to report you to the FCC when I saw the title and who posted it. :laugh: Then I looked a little closer and watched the video. :tongue:

    The Larcan amps would work sweet on 4-meters too...

    I was thinking that too as IIRC there was a bit of a gain peak somewhere around there. New market perhaps? :D
