I'm wondering if others have found the photo of Elecraft's  
forthcoming K-3 to reveal an ugly radio? Is the color really some  
sort of tepid yellow/brown with what appear to be parts bin front  
panel controls?

It seems to me over the years that Ten-Tec has paid a lot of  
attention to appearance/ergonomics, and both the OMNI VII and the  
Argo V rate very highly in my book. (A TS-870S is not bad, either.)  
Part of enjoying ham radio is having a pleasant experience using the  
rig, and from the looks of it, you may have to get past the looks of  
the K-3 before you can enjoy it.
