Hi Tom (et al),

If you have a lot of guest ops, maybe you made a reasonable choice, although I 
do note
that there are still lots of "knobs" to find, remember where they are, and use 
on the 2000.

For most single (non-guest) ops, the vast majority of functions are present on 
the front 
panel of the K3; I mean, how often will one adjust the sidetone pitch or the cw 
rise time 
(which are on menus)?

Once you start contesting, it's all right there for you (K3) and not via a 
menu.  I think that if
one wants to twiddle too many dials during a contest, well, maybe they are more 
into DXing
than winning a contest.  LOL  (monoband entries possibly exempted, esp low 

If you measure your logic again in, say, 3 years, the results may change 
because by then, I
suspect that most contesters will be using the K3 (ie, no learning curve cuz 
it's already the
radio they know).

How's that for a bold prediction?
