Hi Gordon,I have a KX2 s/n under 250. I'm not a hiker but I operate on the ocean beaches in WA state and up at Mt Rainier NP. In the field I use the AX1 ant on a camera tripod. Works very well. The only mod was the 2nd harmonic mod to the transmitter. Excellent portable/field radio!Enjoy 73Jim [hidden email]

Hi Gordon,

It's a safe bet that there are a thousand or more KX2 owners represented on this list. There are also many frequenting the KX2/KX3-specific list, [hidden email].

I use mine every weekend :)

I have used a KX2 for several years. Very pleased with it overall. I use it
portable at home to make operating outdoors easy but I also enjoy SOTA and
POTA operations when time and location permit. For a time I used it as my
only rig coupled with a KXPA-100 amplifier. It has a very nice, well
thought out, feature set.

Yup, I’ve got one here - it keeps my K3-Line company. Use it for QRP operating, usually in the back yard when weather permits. Nice little rig.

I have a KX2   serial # 41  .. which I have had since the beginning. I
remember hustling over to the Elecraft booth at DAYTON, as they
announced the radio & instant availability at Dayton ( 50 some sets at
the fest)...


My KX2 is mounted in my VW right where I wanted it !!!! drives the
KXPA100 to a screwdriver on the roof rack. Works great on 80 meters, and
the world on 40 &  20 etc..

After trying every mini pelican case and many photo bags, I currently
travel with it wrapped in clothing in the suitcase. It is so small,  any
case seems to add unnecessary bulk. The mini photo bags carry the
antenna line and a  little cheap headset.

on my qrz page there are two pictures , one on the Atlantic shore and
the other on Grismey Island  north of Iceland in the Arctic Circle.   I
am pedestrian mobile with a drag counterpoise line.

You won't hear much about a fantastic radio.  I have used lots of QRP radios and the KX2 beats the crap out of all, including the other Elecraft QRP radios for size and true portability.  It is my best ever go to portable. Now if Wayne could shrink it more?

Have a great day!
Bill

I rode my bike to the beach and made a few QSOs with the KX2 and AX1. I put a
picture on my QRZ.com page. It is easy for me to remember my radio's S/N =
1234! There have been many successful outings to  beaches on the north and
south shores of Long Island with the LICW and LIQRP clubs.

Them's fightin' words!

When you have local interference, NOTHING beats a KX3 and it's superior
adjacent frequency rejection!

When you're XC skiing, every ounce counts, and you need bulletproof
durabilty, NOTHING beats a KX1 in a Pelican 1060 micro-case!  I've fallen
on mine dozens of times!

When you need a cute microrig, NOTHING beats a K1!

And when you want the best radio you can build yourself, a dreamy CW rig,
NOTHING beats a K2!

But yes, a KX2 is a damn fine radio, and a mixture of all of the above.

I am happy to still use them ALL!

I have been using a KX2 with the ATU a little over a year, my first and only radio.  I love it and have had great success in field throwing a 58’ wire up a tree and a 13’ counterpoise on the ground.  Been experimenting with different antenna at home, so far a folded dipole using about 128-130’ of wire being the best performer on 80/40/20m.  I put together an external power supply using a security system sealed 12V battery in a small plastic ammo box, an auto lighter plug and a cheap voltmeter.  I have operated for over two hours at 10W using this battery rig and the whole station fits in a small $15.00 backpack.

You are not mistaken, however, posts regarding the KX2 are few and far between.  The radio is simply that good!

Re: KX2 ... Any KX2 users on this list?

In reply to this post by Elecraft mailing list
I can confirm the good reports on the KX2. I've been using mine for a
couple years for portable operations, without a hitch. The receiver
sounds almost as good as my K3.

The battery is good for 5 or 6 hours of CW contest operation at 10 W. If
you really want to keep the weight down, the KX2 battery can charge a
phone.  A modified USB car charger plugs into the battery connector.
That battery could charge a phone several times.

One very slight annoyance is that Elecraft never fixed the filter
software: It only works at bandwidths of odd multiples of 50 Hz: 250,
350, etc. I happen to like mine at 400.


73,
Scott K9MA

Hello Gordon,

this is another KX2 user ;-)
I bought mine last year and did not really use it regularly so far, just
a bit listening on the bands, but that should change very soon.
Today a fellow OM (also owner of a KX2) helped me to configure WSJT-X
and I had my first FT8 QSO with my KX2. But my main use will be SSB...
until I manage to be good enough in CW to be on air.

Maybe NOT shrinking more, but.... adding 2m to it? IF at all something
is missing on the KX2, then I would think it is 2m. Nevertheless,
carrying my Anytone 878 with me in addition is not too much, even though
there is still no possibility to do 2m SSB or (if I ever make it) CW.

Gordon,

I am a brand new owner of a KX2, specifically purchased for POTA activations where I cannot just drive up and unload the ”big” rig (which happens to be a fairly small but heavy  FT-857D setup). I’ve had the KX2 with me on a recent trip to Florida and I activated three parks on SSB/PSK31. I used a SOTABEAMS 6m telescopic mast with a SOTABEAMS Bandhopper Midi. The ATU in the KX2 had no problems at all tuning the antenna. It’s a great POTA setup. Let me know when you’ll be out activating, I’ll be listening for you.

73, Karl Heinz - K5KHK
