Last Friday, if you were lucky enough to attend the Visalia DX Convention, you would have seen the debut of Elecraft’s new KX3 accessory, the PX3 Panadapter. (Many thanks to Eric (WD8RIF) and Michael (KD9AUR) for the tip!)
The compact PX3 form factor is similar to that of the KX3 (see photo above). Features/Specs include:
- Full-color, fast waterfall of spectrum display
- Plug-and-play operation
- Dynamic range and frequency span of up to 200 kHz
- Can detect signals
down to the noise floor of the KX3
Wide supply voltage range (8-15 V)
- Low current drain (typ. 140 mA @ 13.8 V)

You can pre-order the PX3 on Elecraft’s website: $499.95 as a modular kit, $569.95 factory assembled and tested. I understand that Elecraft plans to start shipping in June 2014.
