Clear instructions combined with an extensive theory of operation section make the K2 radios you can easily build, understand and even modify.(You can even download our manuals.)The Elecraft's wireless design methodology eliminates most point-to-point wiring inside the radio.Although it can seem really scary at first, you won't regret a moment of it.And after a few 'contacts', you'll be wanting to make more and more.Two VFOs with multiple memories, split TX/RX operation, RIT/XIT, full break-in CW, memory keyer, narrow IF crystal filtering, excellent dynamic range and IF derived AGC are standard on the K2.: "The K2's receiver performance compares very favorably to that of the samples of the high-end radios we've recently examined...
The fact that a radio in this price class, and a home-built one at that, can stand proudly in such company is a remarkable accomplishment."Our illustrated step-by-step assembly instructions include modular assembly and check out of each control, receive and transmit stage.
There are many ways to make a QSO, some of the most common being through morse code (CW), phone (voice communications), and data (RTTY, teletype).

The KX1 and K2 utilize only through-hole user installed components for easy construction. " Rob Capon, W3DX Both the K2 and K3 include built in test firmware and equipment to make alignment and test quick and easy, without requiring a lab full of expensive test equipment.
Comments on the KX1: "Elecraft set out to develop the ultimate, portable back-packing rig, designed to operate on extremely low current while delivering a robust feature set for serious operation. Built in equipment includes a digital voltmeter, ammeter, frequency counter (K2) and RF power meter.
Boards plug directly into each other to form a clean, rugged and open design.
