Hello everyone, I currently use some old boat anchor gear (see my signature below). Mostly enjoy CW on 80, 40, and 20. My primary rig is a Swan 600 twin and it isn't that great for CW. I've worked all continents and almost WAS so my setup works fine, but what would be a good next step in regards to an upgraded radio for CW? I was reading about the Elecraft K3 and have encountered some stations on the air that use the K3. It looks like a fine CW rig. Looks like you get what you pay for because it is pricey, too. I don't necessarily want to talk about radios within a budget range as much as I would like to talk about radios that work awesome for HF CW. I realize that besides power output, most of the new rigs should be quite an upgrade over a Swan, but you guys tell me, since I don't have any new equipment and haven't really had the chance to use any new gear. By using the Swan 600 instead of newer SS equipment, what am I missing? What radios should I take a look at/try/research?
