I have a K1, and a KX2....Looking at a K3S.

This only for the QSK.

The rigs are not user friendly!!

My OMNI 6+ is a joy to operate, the Elecrafts often require I pull out 
the manual!

If I had no other rig, but a single Elecraft....I'm sure I'd soon have 
it memorized. But when switching rigs

often, it is hard to get used to them.

At least that has thus far been my experience!

It's amazing that there is not a Kenwood, Icom, or Yaesu that has the 
QSK that my Omni 6+ does!!!
