JA1NLX/VK4 from OC-160

I am wondering which radio I should take to Hamilton Island. The best friend is KX3+PA100D (100w amp). I do not know when it arrives although I ordered on June 17 (Assembled).
The latest shipping status is..........

It means that ordering before June 1 will be shipped in next 7 business days. My next choice will be TS480HX or K2/100 though.........

KX3 was shipped on Sept 10. It will arrive here in 7 to 10 days !!!
