NEW…TWO DIFFERENT VERSIONS!
Now you can get a KX3Helper for times when you want to use your KXPD3 (or KXPD1) paddle. I’m calling it the KX3PDHelper.

One thing many of us wish was different about the KX3 is the angle of view provided by the stock legs. I wanted something to prop my rig up so I had more of a “straight-on” view of the display. After a lot of design trials and construction systems, I’ve come up with something that’s simple, elegant, inexpensive and most importantly…useful. It’s flexible, durable, weighs next to nothing (only 1 oz!) and most of all it stays put. I call it the KX3Helper. It props up the radio just enough so you have a clear read of the area above the VFO knob. And with the non-slip foam wrapped all around, you’ll be surprised how it “sticks” to a surface even when you poke at the buttons.
These are hand cut and hand glued from materials sourced here in the US. Just like Elecraft, I prefer to keep things local if at all possible.
As you can see, both KX3Helpers provide a much better view of the display which makes ops more comfortable and enjoyable. In the case of the KX3PDHelper, the key rests about 1/8-1/4 of an inch off the surface, so you don’t have to reach up to send. Much more ergonomic and easy on the OP.
