These are very well built. Top unit interfaces computer/PC headsets to KX3, middle unit interfaces Heil Pro series headsets and bottom unit provides bluetooth connectivity to the ACC port. These are so well-built I’m tempted to hang onto them, but I have not had use for them in over a year so it’s time to find them a new home.

Kantronics KPC-3 with v6.0 rom $150 plus shipping $25 Canada $30 USA

Fully working unit, surplus to my needs. I also have the original book manual that you can have for an additional $20.

MX-P50M QRP HF Amplifier $135 plus shipping $25 Canada $30 USA

5W in 50W out. Covers 80 through 10m. These amps have a reputation for harmonics however I’ve tested this one and it only shows up on 30m band – it is within spec on all other bands. This unit has been modified so that the power switch turns the unit OFF instead of STANDBY which is how they normally ship – this will save your battery in the field. Works FB with any QRP radio that can provide a standard amplifier switching line output. Comes with cables to mate to power and switching lines (5′ long) which go to bare wires – these cables aren’t shown in the photo.
