KY needed for Phone WAS WK7G on 7/7/15
Kind of short notice but I'm up for a new vanity call sign that will be awarded tomorrow morning. I'm missing the great state of Kentucky for my phone WAS. It would be nice to get a QSO/QSL on LoTW tonight with my current call sign! If you would like to help out send me an email at

Thanks, Scott

I control my ft897 with HRD on my computer now so that is not a big jump.
FT-DX 3000 or ????? WK7G on 22/5/15
I recently got my Extra ticket and I'm looking to upgrade to a new rig. I'm currently using a FT-897D in the shack. It is a fine rig but I would love to have a dedicated base rig and use the FT-897D for portable and mobile ops. As far as antennas I have an Alpha Delta DX-LB PLUS, 43' vertical, and a 5 Element 6 meter LFA yagi.
I have been looking at the FT-DX 3000, Elecraft KS3 and the Flex 6300.

FT-DX 3000 ~ $2200
- Good all around rig with nice filtering.
- Internal ATU
- lots of bells and whistles built in. USB, CW decoder etc...

Elecraft KS3 ~$2900
- great reputation following and support.
- Quality RX/TX
- Pricey when adding options

Flex 6300 ~$2500
- dual receiver channels and Panadapters
- Remote operating LAN, future WAN a big plus.
- Small foot print.

I would love to hear what everyone thinks of these 3 or alternatives is the mid priced range ($2000-3000)

Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom!
