Re: K4

I'm always amazed at what a great job Elecraft does keeping major new
products secret throughout a long, multi-year development cycle.  There
were engineers and others throughout the country (and the world) who
knew about it but never let it slip.

Re: K4

It will be interesting to go through the for sale ads on QRZ, and QTH
looking at who sold a K3S in the months leading up to the release date
of the K4, then do the same for the time period of the K3 to K3S
transition.

If it is the same people, then we can guess at who had advanced
knowledge, and who to watch next time...

Yes, but on the other hand, I knew about it in advance and I still have
my K3.  :=)

I suspect the K3s will still be a popular radio because of its friendly
user interface, world-class performance, small size and weight, and low
power consumption.  It's a great DXpedition and Field Day rig.

Some are my friends. Although I've suspected for several years that this
project was underway, I never attempt to compromise those friends by
probing for info. I've long had friends and colleagues in sensitive
gigs, and that's always been my practice. If someone wants to volunteer
info, I'll listen.

I'm quite happy with my early s/n K3s with dual RX and upgraded synth
and preamp. I'm in no hurry to buy a K4.

73, Jim K9YC

My father, W1BML (SK) worked for General
Dynamics from 62 till retirement in the
early 80's as principal engineer in
electronics on submarines in Groton, CT.
In WWII he worked in the Philadelphia Navy
Yard designing submarine propulsion.

He never once revealed any Navy/military
secret, even back from WWII. Some people
keep their word.

& Kudos to Elecraft on another wonderful
venture.

Re: K4

In reply to this post by Jim - N4ST
I've been thinking about buying the K4
when it comes out, move the K3s to
"backup", selling my "backup" K3 & also
sell sell my old Corsair II & an Icom pro.

I think now I'm going to buy the K4, sell
the Corsair & Icom, move the K3 out to the
Aliner Popup & have the K3s as backup.

I think that's my best option.
