It has finally come time to list my beloved K2. It has served me well. My
K2 is a SN 4000+ model. It was built by Dale Parfit, W4OP. It has the
KAT2 ATU (built by me) and the KSB2 Sideband module (built by me). I will
also include the Icom hand mic that the rig is configured for. It also has
the FT100 knob and will include the original knob if it is wanted by the
buyer. I added an internal balun to the antenna 2 input which allows very
easy plug and play for balanced antennas. It can be configured to be 1:1
just by moving the input wires and re-soldering. I'll include a bit of
write up on how that should look. It can be removed if desired. I have
pictures of the mod for those interested. I also installed some nice flip
up feet on the front that are lower than the provided bail, they are just
removed by unscrewing them. I will include the factory bail as well.
In the sense of full disclosure, when assembling the SSB module, I did run
into a problem, I installed the wrong connector on the module (same sex as
the one on the board) and had to remove the one on the main board of the K2
which was very difficult and the board now is a bit "darker" in those
areas. Electrically the board is fine and the SSB module works great,
Elecraft uses very high quality PCBs so there should be no problems. Just
looks a bit wonky.
I am asking $750 which includes shipping and insurance to the US.
International folks can inquire for actual shipping costs. Price includes:
the radio, manual, original knob, FT100 knob, original tilt bail, flip up
feet, internal balun, power cable (with power poles), Icom hand mic,
internal test probe. Does not include the RF probe that came with the
kit. I think that covers it.
