Elecraft K1

One of my least used rigs (it has still to be used at this QTH!) is my 4-band Elecraft K1 CW transceiver. This covers 40m, 30m, 20m and 15m CW at up to about 7W. It has the auto-ATU built in so just needs a 12-13.8V supply, CW key and end-fed antenna to be on the air.

At my old QTH it has worked lots including the USA on all bands with a simple end-fed wire antenna down the garden.  I really should consider selling it or trading it in as it is not being used.

    I’ve been thinking about getting a K1 for a long time now, how much are you asking for it?

  • Bob Bach, KG7HCL:

    I am also thinking of getting a k1. Is your for sale?

  • K KO7F:

    If you wanted to sell your K-1, its probably gone by now, but if not,
    what is your wholesale price for an OM who is a Gimp and blind in one eye
    and cant see out of the other? Kidding! I am interested in a price for a
    4 band K-1
