Factory Fresh, or Bag-O-Parts Which is is for you?

Elecraft KX3


Elecraft said they hope to start shipping at the end of February or the beginning of March when I talked to them on the phone today.

I’m at the tail end of the line too, I just ordered on today!

While we’re waiting for that big day when the Kx3 arrives, I was wondering how many ordered the Kx3 assembled by the factory or in Kit form?

Just curious! I ordered mine ‘Factory Fresh’!

    I prefer a Bag of Parts and a pile of solder! My first kit was a Philmore super-regen radio (tubes) with some of the worst instructions in the world for a 14 yr old. But I got it to work and moved on from there. Last project was the DSP board for my K2.

    I ordered in early January, and can’t wait to get my hands on that bag o’ parts!
