I believe this is another home run by Elecraft. The radio is easy to use, the tuner tuned my End Fed from 80 to 10 meters, the radio is light weight, easy to use and compact. It is not much bigger than a KX1.
I used it a lot on PSK31, CW and SSB. I used the internal mic and the external Elecraft mic. The specs including price of the radio can be seen at the Elecraft Web site.

Built in tuner
Easy to use
As with all Elecraft Radios great QSK
Internal Battery with long life
Does this replace the KX3? In a word, no. If I did not have a K3 the KX3 would be my main station. It is that good and fun to take portable. I can see the KX3 in our RV or beach house/cabin in the future.
