My KX3 showed up, too. Very nice piece of kit, to borrow an expression from across the pond. One of the somewhat amusing things I learned was that there is a status LED for the internal battery charger which is visible through one of the mounting holes for the KXPD3 (!). I don't think this is something you need to see for routine operating, but you can check it for error codes or if you are curious about what the battery charger is doing. Also, the default CW WGHT is set to 1.25, so I set it to what I believe is "standard Morse" or 1.00. I'm probably too green to understand why nonstandard Morse timing is good, but I do know other keyers make this setting adjustable. As the KX3 only has one key input (well, unless you do something with the KXPD3 connector), the operator has to toggle a menu value to change from the internal keyer to a straight key. After assigning the menu item to PF1 or 2, this just takes a button press, a knob twist and another button tap to jump from TIP=DOT to HAND, so it isn't too bad if you hear a SKCC member and want to quickly switch to your straight key. (And, of course, you have to have both keys connected in parallel if you want to eliminate fooling around with plug/unplug.) Also, there is the nifty KX3 Utility program which provides for writing and loading KX3 macros, in addition to being a bare-bones CW/PSK/RTTY terminal. I believe it will be possible to write a macro which would set HAND with one press of PF1. The menu is a lot easier to use on an actual KX3 than I thought it would be by reading the manual ahead of time. Kudos to Elecraft. I'm looking forward to using this for many years.
