K4 and VHF/UFH add-ons

Joseph Trombino, Jr
Howdy Fellow Elecrafters.

I have 3 questions for the group:

1.  Any rumors/inside info on the K4 delivery date(s)?

2.  Will the planned VHF/UHF add-ons allow fo full duplex Satellite operation?

3.  What will be the power output for these add-ons?

Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday and cu on the bands with my KX2 or KX3.

                        73, Joe W2KJ
                        I QRP, therefore I am

Thank you.

Judging from the lack of activity on this list by the people
working at Elecraft, I'd guess they're working their tail off to
get it out the door.

They’ve made some comments on the VHF/UHF capability previously.  I think Elecraft indicated they were thinking around 15W for the VHF/UHF module.  And as I recall full-duplex/satellite was not in the initial plans.  I’m going to guess this isn’t the current hi priority item on the list.  Availability maybe mid-year.  A search in Nabble or a quick review through mailman archives should find those posts.  No guarantee my memory is any good of course.

The “official” target dates remain Nov/Dec availability for the K4 according to the website.  There were comments during a video interview at a UK hamfest that it might be after the 1st of the year.  But there wasn’t much context to those comments — so not clear if that was regarding “general availability”, or if 1st deliveries to the various deposit/pre-order lists might be sooner. or ….

It will show up when it shows up.  It would certainly be worth the price of admission to be a fly on the wall to see what’s going on in Elecraft test and development ..  :-)

Check out the Youtube video posted 3 days ago reviewing the K4 at the UK distributor.  Eric covered that topic.  Search using “Elecraft K4 in Depth”

That was worth the 40 minutes …

Didn’t answer every question ever asked,  but great info, and much more thorough than the fester interviews … (Thanks, Eric!)

Yes. The K4 will provide multiple transverter band displays, and each cam display the target RF band. This is similar to what the K3/K3S and KX-Line radios provide.

Re: K4 and VHF/UFH add-ons

Dimitry Borzenko
Thank you Wayne.
K3/K3S today do not shows all target frequency, do not show GHz, so from
2304.000.000 we can see only 304.000.00
I do not understand why impossible to show 2304.000.0  and with "Fine"
engaged - 04.000.000 ?
Or to do this configurable, if K3S has enough free flash memory :)

Best Wishes.
