Desktop HF/VHF Transceiver

Available as K3/10 and K3/100 (10 or 100 W RF-output).

An internal 2m module, K144XV, is available. Coverage of the K144XV is 144-148MHz and it provides 10W ouput:
With an Elecraft K144XV internal 2 meter module installed, your K3 will make another leap forward in versatility. The K144XV covers the full 144-148 MHz U.S. allocation, so you can do weak-signal CW/SSB work as well as access 2-m repeaters in your area. The receiver has excellent sensitivity and dynamic range. Transmit power output is 10 W continuous in all modes, with diode switching for silent, relay-free T/R.

Price (assembled) K3/100 in 2009: USD 2089.95
