The new P3 Panadapter display adds a visual dimension to signal hunting with fast real time spectrum and waterfall displays of band activity. The P3 offers superior sensitivity and DSP processing, giving you the ability to see signals down to the K3's noise floor.
Simple 5 minute plug-in integration with the K3 - No PC required for normal operation
The P3 looks and feels like it is part of the K3 transceiver
Screen may be split to display both spectrum and waterfall displays at the same time
200 kHz maximum span; 2 kHz minimum span (wider spans planned with future f/w updates)
Point and click by pressing the "select" knob to move the K3 VFO to desired signals (Sets VFO A or VFO B)
"Undo" feature to return to the previous frequency (before QSY)
On-screen cursors show where the K3's VFO A and VFO B are set, and their RX bandwidth
Multi-pass signal averaging mode shows even weaker signals while averaging out the noise
Peak detection mode to show total activity on the band
Adjustable reference level and amplitude range scaling
User calibration of the display to show absolute signal level in dBm
Buffered IF output to drive other equipment
Transparent operation to external logging and control programs
Programmable function keys for both P3 and K3 commands
Programmable IF input (455 kHz to 21.7 MHz) for use with other transceivers
Firmware updates with new features downloadable from your PC/Mac.
P3 Utility can upload the current P3 sweep screen to a .bmp graphics file on your PC.
Dimensions: 10cm high x 16cm wide x 25,4cm deep (matches the K3)
Available factory- assembled or as a modular "no-solder" kit
Note: Either the KXV3 or the KXV3a K3 option is required to feed the K3's IF output to the P3.
