      The K3 has a lot of upgradable and dowloadable software in it.  It can be programmed to do a lot of intersting things.  Here is one...
       
      If you tune into a digital mode signal, PSK31 for example, the copy will scroll on the radio's LCD.  But even more interstingly, you can elect to have the radio decode it from digital-speak into Morse such that when you tune across a PSK31 signal, you hear Morse!

        I knew the plan was for it to decode PSK and display the scrolling
        text, but this is the first I heard that it would translate it to
        audible Morse.

        The Kenwood TS-2000 has packet decoder built in and the Icom 746ProII
        has an RTTY decoder built in, so decoding and displaying a digital
        mode isn't a new idea, but what I found interesting is the K3 can
        SEND digital modes without a computer or keyboard, but taking the
        characters from your paddles! That would make it truly portable
        while still allowing you to work digital.

        On the decode-to-Morse thing, I wonder if they'll have some buffer
        that will allow the Morse to be slowed. PSK31 averages about 50 WPM.
