Well, time to update the site’s K3 section. There are now four K3 owners, W7QC, W9HXM, W7FU and me. I understand that there may be a 5th sooner than later.
The SN for Steve’s K3 is 35. Mine is 2757. In that time the wait period between order and receipt has changed a lot! Steve wait just a little over 6 months. I ordered my on a Saturday night via the Elecraft Web site and the K3 arrived on the following Thursday.
I didn’t think I would be able to get to it for 2 to 3 week, but thought I should at least inventory the parts. Once everything was spread out I decided to at least put one thing together. Big mistake! By the following Saturday I had made QSO! So less than a week for order to use. And the build was relaxing and enjoyable. Only made one easily corrected faux-pas.
I am really enjoying the rig whenever I get a chance to use it.
At the last club meeting I was having fun with a pun – adding a 3 after the K in RTKCC. Sort of a sub-club. Here’s he badge that grew out of that bit of fun.
