K4

Dick-4

And after reading all the comments on “why buy a K4, or even Elecraft when I have Icoms et al, etc.” . Well I haven’t heard anyone say “MADE IN AMERICA”.  And as previously stated so well, add boards anytime to  update or add desired features without having to pay for another “box” to house all the interiors. Of course this is in MHO.

Re: K4

George Thornton
I have been an active HAM since about 2000.  

After a brief and very unsatisfactory experience with a Kenwood 2000, all my HF rigs have been Elecraft and I have always gone kit.

I currently own a well-populated K3 with some of the K3s modifications.

I am less concerned about bells and whistles than pure performance.  Can I hear them?  Can I penetrate through under adverse conditions and get a QSL?

Elecraft has always delivered and has always been at or near the top in performance.

I have confidence with Elecraft that I am at the top in quality and when I can't get through it is not the fault of the radio.

I know this is a smart company.  It is an American company that has survived and excelled in a market dominated by foreign competition.  

On top of it, this is an organization that listens to and takes care of its customers.    If something goes wrong they will help me sort it out and fix it.  And they will do it for a reasonable price.

I don't see myself ever going anywhere else.

Re: K4

hbjr

We should all care.  That should be an important consideration for anyone living in this country considering the amount of jobs that have been sent overseas.

I applaud a company that makes any part of their product in this country.  It sounds trite, but the job you save may be your own.

Where it's made

Ken G Kopp
For a number of reasons it should be self-evident that where an item is
made is of the utmost importance.

It all depends on your definition of "made." A huge fraction of
electronic components and most silicon is fabricated in a variety of
countries in or close to Asia these days.  There really isn't any choice
anymore.  If your "made" includes them, essentially nothing electronic
is made in the US anymore.  OTOH, if your "made" includes only
conceptual and detailed design, assembly, testing, and finished product
logistics, then there is a big difference between Elecraft and
FT<mumble> in terms of where it's made

Re: K4

Tony Estep
It's pretty funny to talk about "made-in-USA" products on a chat group
conducted on computers, which are connected by routers and switches and
display their output on LCD or LED monitors. Presumably those who stick to
domestically-made products don't have phones, TVs, or cars. Probably don't
have much to wear either, and pretty monotonous diets.
