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.

Looks black to me.  It is, in fact, black.  Saw their  demo units at Dayton 
and they all looked pretty good to me.
