A hard decision to make………

My 1/2 built K2 is up for sale
Many decisions have been made here at VE3WDM in the past few months. We decided to downsize to a condo in so doing we moved to a very nice condo on the lake in Toronto. Many things had to be sold including ham radio related items. The shack had to be downsized but not shut down! Over the weekend I took another look at items I have that I'm not using. So some small items went up for sale and one BIG item that I have been mulling over for some time.....my 1/2 built K2 went up on the market today. This was a hard decision as I really enjoy kit building but with the small space it was just not going to work out. This is my second K2 and I did have a blast putting the first one together as well as 1/2 of this one. It's up on the Elecraft user group site. There was a heart stopping moment when one email asked me what the serial number was of the kit. No problem I packed it in three boxes, once opening them the contents were just the casing and the boards that I had 1/2 built.....WHERE ARE THE PARTS!!!! Did I toss them with the "junk". A fast check of  some boxes in the locker cleared up the question and all were parts were found safe and sound.

    Mike, do you have a link to the sale/auction page?

  • Mike VE3WDM:

    Good afternoon Matt here is the info in the add including the link to some picks of the rig.
    Any questions please email me

    This is my second K2 that I have built (this one only 1/2 way) it pains me greatly to put it up for sale….but….we have moved into a condo from our large home. I have come to the realization that both hamming and kit building cannot happen in such a small space. The kit was built in a professional fashion and pic’s can be viewed at my K2 build blog. http://elecraftk2.blogspot.ca/ The kit also comes with the rework eliminator bypass header kit and Mic adapter kit. Learn more about the kit from here…http://www.unpcbs.com/#rework_eliminator_TM_products
    If you have any questions regarding the kit please email and I will be more than happen to answer.
    Cost is 550.00 Shipping included.

    Good evening Matt, I have posted on this page an email with the K2 info and some links but the site wants to hold the email is it had some links. I guess they have to make sure it’s not spam before it goes up on the site. It should be up soon.
