K4

Jim Ewing
Also consider:  All day Friday and Saturday at Dayton, Eric and Wayne were
standing there out in front of their booth, two guys engaging with a big
and continual throng of hams and their hundreds of questions.  From all
directions, all kinds of subjects.  They knew the answers and the
subtleties, at whatever level of detail, just standing there, totally
comfortable in this setting, obviously enjoying their time.  It's because
from out of their minds came the design, performance, operation of the K4.
Maybe some other QRO radio manufacturers could do this; I suppose Art
Collins did it.  (I have seen Steve Weber, Hans Summers and Asher Farhan do
it for their QRP radios.)  In my mind, it's obviously relevant to, among
other issues, performance and design choices and rationale, the look, feel
and soul of the radio, logical upgrade paths, logical troubleshooting which
will inevitably be required in the future as it is with any electronic
equipment.  The mental video loop of Eric and Wayne standing there with the
crowd will stay in my memory, to be replayed pretty much every day when I
run my Elecraft radios.

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.

Will the K4 make a showing at Sea-Pac?

And in addition, the lack of knowledge for networking and all the other stuff, drives me crazy.  I will just buy one, it is Elecraft and I have never owned a product of theirs that wasn't above the rest.  Customer service has been fabulous.  Maybe my fully loaded K3S will remain with me.

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.

Absolutely! I'll be there along with Dick, K6KR, and Madelyn from our sales group.

See you in a week and a half.
