Hi Fred,

A KX3 can already remotely control a K2, K3, or another KX3 to a limited degree. Just place the KX3 to be used as the control panel in to "RIG CTRL" mode using the "AUTOINFO" menu entry.

Here are some of the things you can control using the KX3's present firmware:

- band and mode change
- VFOs A and B
- VFO A/B, REV, and A>B
- RIT offset and clear
- filter bandwidth

We plan to expand on this in the future.
