Or is the idea of FOUR K3s a bit excessive?

It's not just you

Actually, it is you.

I don't see anything wrong there.


Maybe it's a multi-operator contest station.

That's nothing compared to what I'd have if I won the mega lotto!

It's obviously on a remote mountain top, and those are controlled via the interwebs.

At least that's what I'm telling myself.

Having four of the same radios is boring. I like variety like this:

It ain't mine. The radios belong to W9EVT. I met him at 2013 Dayton Hamvention.
Now to answer your question with another question.... How many guns can you shoot at the same time?

With my shoes on?  Two.

Will I hit anything?  Well that's another question, isn't it?

And I assumed they weren't yours, the question was phrased that way for the humor value.

10 fully loaded K3s one for each band and stacked monobanders for each band too.

You don't switch bands on the amp....  you switch the amp for the band.
