Biding my time ...

Grant Youngman-2
I was rereading all of the K4 material today.  It occurred to me that waiting for a K4 is not unlike waiting for a new key from Alberto Frattini (I1QOD).  You know you’re going to getting something exceptional … eventually … but you have to just put it out of your mind for a few months while the elf is building it …

So I’ve put it out of my mind … I’m trying, anyway.  Really … :-)

KX3 (8342)/KXPA100

I had a chance to give the K4 a good look at W9DXCC this weekend.  It's a beautiful system.  Would be even better paired with the KPA1500.

Lyn, WØLEN

Re: Biding my time ...

Wes Stewart-2
Money wise I can afford a K4.  Time wise, I'm not so sure.  I'll turn 78 next
month and based on experience with being the first kid on the block with a K3S,
I'll wait a year for the K4 birth defects to be fixed.  Between that and with
the current state of the bands, I might never buy one, although I have a zero
dollar order in and the time lines might actually cross.

Re: Biding my time ...

Bill K9YEQ
I am a youngster at 73.  I want to keep my equipment current,  so don't mind the financials. I love to keep current and while this results in loss of original investment the upgrades are amazing.  I have my K4 order in.   At my age ok for a secondary purchaser to scarf up my perfect rig with all the options, and I mean ALL the options.
