    FTDX-5000 vs K3. Side by Side comparisons (videos).

    Both good TRX.  Hope you can make some conclusions.

    FTDX 5000 vs K3 comparison by YO3GIC. During CQ WW DX CW 2012.

    Notice OL8A, who can be heard quite well on the FTDX5000 200Hz away from an adjacent  station (K2AX). On the K3 the station doesn't even "show up".



    Diversity RX test: Using the same antenna for both K3 RX's and same antenna for 5K RX's. On both radios the RX's are in sync. Due different IFs when using 5K there is a shade /fade effect on speakers, this is not the case with K3 having same twin receivers

    This is a SSB comparative test; both radios have same settings, no DSP bells and rings
