I am Scott AK6Q. This site is about my original and innovative SIDE KX accessories for your Elecraft KX3 radio,  the PX3 Panadaptor and now the K-Line!

I grew up in the mountains of Colorado and my passion is the great outdoors.  I prefer to be on a mountain rather than in the city.  This has driven me to develop the SIDE KX accessories.  I saw, as many have, a need for additional protection of this great radio.  My goal was to make the radio more pack friendly with a minimalist approach.  I strive to keep with the ‘Top Shelf Quality’ that Eric and Wayne have set as the standard for Elecraft.  All of my parts are made in the USA. 

These products have been used worldwide for the last 3 years and have been proven on the toughest of terrain.  Some of the feedback I have received is; “Why didn’t Elecraft do this from the beginning?” and  “It's nice to see a quality product still made in the U.S.”

This all started with the development of replacement side panels for the KX3 and then the PX3 each with a smoked Lexan cover  to further protect your display, knobs and buttons.  KX3 Line is seamlessly integrated and more importantly PROTECTED.

I have listened to your requests and I have also created a cover for the paddle port on the front edge of the radio where a user would attach the KXPD key. 

I as well have in R&D a new mobile mount for both the KX3 and the PX3 so watch for updates here on the MOUNTS tab for these new products.

The newest addtion to this great line of products is new side panels for the K-Line.  You can now have the great looks and added protection of D-Handle sides for the K3/K3s and the P3.  I will be adding the KPA500 Amp panels soon!

There has been  attempt to copy my Side KX ends,  by the Chinese  and locally by  N8WTT please don’t be fooled into thinking these are the same.  I am the origonal designer of this product and these are mearly week attempts to copy.  Please remember my Lexan cover will not work with these copy ends.  I do not sell on Ebay, or any other locations on line.  This web site is the only place other than conventions I attend and sell in person, to get the real SIDE KX.

I have also recently added a new mount for the KXPA amp.

PLASTIC UPDATE:  January  17TH, 2016 I am very backordered on plastic (Lexan Covers) since early summer.  In June, my original fabricator becam very ill and his shop closed, leaving me out of plastic.  I have been working on two fronts the first is using the origonal vacuum forming of parts and the second is to move to injection molding, this is an expesive process.

 I have vacuum shop number 6 on the line and they will allow my original fabricator to come in an run their machines the late next week, there will be no learning curve and this should help me out of this bind.

On the injection mold front.... I do not have any parts but I have recently got mold  revision #3 back and it is not functional.  So I am going to a new shop and more cash out lay.  This will have a 40 day time penalty before the first parts come off the new mold for inspection.

I am finaly making some forward prgress and I thank you for your continued patience.
