         Mark your information is out of date by ~1 year.  If you 
want to read Tom's review, it's on page 9 of the eHam K3 reviews 
written August 25, 2008 (see below):

But I have seen too much of messages from you  and others having such
content and I do not like it.
I will refrain from further comment in this discussion as I am adding to
the band noise now too.

         Please recall that you actually began this thread on the 
Ten-tec list by promoting what I feel was a rather questionable 
review of the K3.  I have the benefit of having read (too much) G4ILO 
on the Elecraft list.  For the record, he has now stated:

"If so, then it seems as if all of my main annoyances with the K3 are 
going to be addressed very soon. :) "

Perhaps G4ILO simply needs a little more patience.  Elecraft is 
probably the most responsive radio manufacturer today and certainly 
does not deserve whining reviews...or their promotion.
