I have been a fan of Sennheiser headphones for about 25 years. It uses fast electronic switching and hence gives totally silent and lightning quick QSK – no relays to click and wear out. Friday, December 14, 6: Elecraft claims to be very responsive to customers but I have to say that so far I have failed to persuade them to fix the three bugs in the top three bullets above. The folder location should still be as you left it, if not find the directory where you store your KPA stuff in my case, C: Pick the highest frequency reference you can receive a strong enough signal to discern its pitch clearly e. I discovered this when changing to a new sound card.

I’ll be doing some more testing this weekend. It is the same size as the K3 so it will fit into a flight case and can be taken in the cabin of a plane as hand luggage. Play with the settings on the Operate tab if you like. The PC basically adds an electret microphone on a little adjustable boom so I no longer need to use the old Kenwood handheld mic for my rare forays onto SSB.
It uses fast electronic switching and hence gives totally silent and lightning quick QSK – no relays to click and wear out.
Configure N1MM to connect to the K3. After testing per the procedure in the KPA manual the K2 will send to the laptop but the laptop will not send to the K2 with my present adapters. Santa brought me a fabulous Christmas present one year, a Sennheiser PC headset. I bet if I bridge them, it will work elecrfat the long cable. Unfortunately only mostly, because the Win-Test logger is occasionally confused by the data coming from the adapter, and some versions of the K3 firmware loader were not able to switch the baud rate as needed.
The folder location should still be as you left it, if not find the directory where you store your KPA stuff in my case, C: The mic seems to have plenty of gain: It has a drawback, though, compared to big old Yaesu power meter I used to use.
If needs be, the transformer can be removed without too much trouble and carried separately in the hold. I leave the front panel mic settings configured for the Heil headset that I prefer for contesting. As with the K3, building the kit involves assembling a set of panels and strengtheners for the case and a few pre-constructed PCBs, the PA unit being the main one with its large heatsink.
The K3 comes as standard with an RS serial port through which it can communicate with logging software, passing information such as its frequency and mode in either direction. I discovered this when changing to a new sound card.
Now figure out which serial port the adapter is using: I foolishly neglected to buy the Elecraft cable linking the K3 to the KPA, thinking I could make one up from connectors in my junk box Both are ‘no-name’ devices and both use FTDI chipsets http: I bought the W2 mostly to address a simple problem: The K2 is about the size of a car radio. I can use the CWT tuning indicator to zero-beat my transmitter more accurately on other callers.
Elecraft KUSB USB Adapter for the K3 Transceiver.
I have a couple of other adapters that will work with my Kksb but not with my K2. Wait for it to do its thing. You can also click Test communications.
Naturally, this command only works if the subRX is turned on! The connection between pickup head and display box uses an Ethernet cable. Open the KPA configuration tab. The K3 is not perfect however. The W2 does that, and has LED bargraphs displaying forward and reflected power.
See the K2 manual for details. It is nice and quiet, especially compared to the roar of 4 muffin fans inside my elevraft old valve amp.
