The P3 meets all your toughest specs.
Our 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 (CW Skimmer etc.)
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 many other transceivers (IF output required)
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: 4" high x 6.4"wide x 10" deep (matches the K3)
Weight: 5.5 lbs
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.

P3_SVGA Large Screen Adapter for the P3
(Up to 1920 x 1080p)
(Plugs into any existing P3)
The P3SVGA adapter adds wide screen display capability to the P3 (up to
1920x1080p). It also has a dedicated high speed FFT processor that performs a 2048
point FFT in parallel with the P3's existing processor, for a much higher
frequency resolution per dot display on the larger screen. The P3SVGA adapter is a
plug-in internal card to the P3 that can be easily added by the user.
The P3SVGA also includes a USB interface that can connect to a flash memory drive for screen dumps, and to many USB keyboards to allow direct digital mode operation via the K3 and P3 with P3SVGA, with TX/RX data display on the P3SVGA external screen.
Currently supported native screen resolutions :
Note: Most other resolution flat screen displays also support the next lower P3 screen resolution.
Like the P3, the P3SVGA is firmware downloadable and new features will be available over time.
The P3SVGA is available on our order page. The P3SVGA is now shipping.
