Meanwhile, dozens of Chinese engineers/hackers are already fabricating the upcoming $350 bootleg version of the Erecraft KX2.
Recently Elecraft has also begun comparing the K3S and the KX3 to other popular rigs on the market. These comparisons will be posted to Elecraft's website soon. Here is their comparison of the K3S to Icom's IC-7300. Omitted of course is the very large price difference between these two radios.
