I used to have one about 8 years ago then I sold off all
my gear but now I'm toying with building another one.

Who here is currently running one?

One of the appeals is the ability to be able to fix it myself.


Thank you

I would. I love Elecraft, radio and building kits. I'm running a K3 now.

I dream of a k3 with a hf amp, vhf amp, and roller tuner sitting on my desk. I have even toyed with getting rid of the ts-2000 for a k3 the only problem is th price even for the kit.

I bought the tj4a from Youkits and have really enjoyed it. My thread is on here if you do a search.

No I can't

I have had one qso on 40m with it and have a video of it pulling in a couple stations but I haven't really used it. Its my play thing

I have toyed with the idea putting the autotuner from elecraft in it, I also thought about mounting and wiring a raspberry pi in it so I can do psk with a display and keyboard

Get a K3. They are great little radios. Elecraft customer support is simply wonderful. Read the reviews on eham.net
I'm thinking of getting one to supplement my FT-1000mkV.
