Watch out Kenwood, Yaesu, Icom and all other manufacturers who try to sell us Euro 10000+ rigs! Elecraft has announced the K3!
Not too much info yet but here is the data sheet.
I haven’t got time to really analyse all the specs and possibilities but it certainly looks promising!. Way to go Elecraft!!!
I have been looking into my K2-problem over and over and I can’t seem to find anything wrong. As I haven’t got the time nor the courage to take out and rewind the toroids I decided to order them ready made from the ToroidGuy. And, pleasant surprise, turnaround of this order is only 5 days!!! Ordered last sunday (25 feb.) the package arrived this morning! Thanks Mychael!
Now I’ll have to find the time to install them…
To be continued!
After discussing my K2 signal problems with Don W3FPR and Gary AB7MY, the problem seems to need further investigation. As soon as I can find time I’ll post more info here!
K2 sn 5549 is apparently not ready to get on the air yet…
Added some comments about the measurements on the K2 transmitter and the way we ‘cleaned up’ the signal.
K2 sn 5549 is now definitely ready to get on the air!
Did some minor updates to the Elecraft K2-page
Updated the current projects page with some more comments about the K2
Yes! K2 serial number 5549 is alive! What a boost in self confidence!
Yesterday afternoon I did all the regular tests and alignment procedures and all seems to be working correctly. Still a lot of ‘work’ to do, realign the filters using a spectrum analyser etc.
