I am Scott AK6Q. This site is about my original and innovative SIDE KX accessories for your Elecraft KX3 radio, and now the PX3 Panadaptor. I grew up in the mountains of Colorado and my passion is the great outdoors. I prefer to be on a mountain rather than in the city. This has driven me to develop the SIDE KX accessories. I saw, as many have, a need for additional protection of this great radio. My goal was to make the radio more pack friendly with a minimalist approach. I strive to keep with the ‘Top Shelf Quality’ that Eric and Wayne have set as the standard for Elecraft.
These products are used worldwide for the last year and have been proven on the "toughest of terrain. Some of the feedback I have received is; “Why didn’t Elecraft do this from the beginning?” and “It's nice to see a quality product still made in the U.S.”
With the release of the new PX3 Panadaptor, I now have Side KX ends and a matching Lexan cover for the PX3 display so your KX3 Line will be seamlessly integrated and more importantly PROTECTED.
I have listened to your requests and I have also created a cover for the paddle port on the front edge of the radio where a user would attach the KXPD key. I as well have in R&D a new mobile mount for both the KX3 and the PX3 so watch for updates here on these new products.
Recently there has been an attempt to copy my Side KX ends, please don’t be fooled into thinking these are the same. My Lexan cover will not work with the copy ends. Please keep in mind, I do not sell on Ebay, or any other locations on line. This web site is the only place other than conventions I attend and sell in person, to get the real SIDE KX.
July 30TH: As you
may know, my plastic fabricator is a one man shop. He has had
some very serious health issues and has been in and out of the
hospital. This has caused a huge delay in getting plastic (Lexan)
parts for me.
I now have some stock of PX3
covers but Still no KX3 covers. I am promised enough parts to fill my current back orders as of 07/30/15
Due to these delays and issues, I am changing from vacuum formed covers over to injection molded covers, from a new fabricator. This process
will be better in the long run, but it is very expensive to create
the molds and will take about 6 weeks before I will get the first run of
SO... If you order after today (July 30th,2015) you will probalby have the new injection molded parts once they are in stock.
I appriciate your continued patience .
73, Scott AK6Q
