Hello Don,

You may never  know how many folks you have helped-out who are K2 owners.  As I 
mentioned in an earlier post, I didn't finish my K2/100 until very recently, 
serial number 0086.....four years after I retired!  So, as you know, I had to 
do lots of mods. I think I got  them all. 

Your posts got me through several issues, including the keying wave-form mod, 
alignment of the crystal filter (I used the newer crystals based on your post 
about  this--a big difference in my case), the power output instability problem 
(which led me to the Elecraft mod on this).....and some more stuff I don't 
recall now.  I don't think there was one issue that I searched on that didn't 
include a response from you.  All your advice was dead on, too. 

Anyone wanting to build K2 has a resource on this reflector in your advice. 
Thanks  for all your advice and easy to follow instructions.

I guess K2 is a legacy radio but it will out perform all those up-conversion 
radios, hands down.  Sweet sound too.  You may never need a K3!

 Eric,
 
 I do repairs, alignment and calibration and upgrades of the
 Elecraft 
 legacy gear (K2, K1, KX1 and XV series transverters), and I
 am as busy 
 as I want to be (sometimes more than I want to be).
 So there is still a lot of interest in that gear, but you
 are right, 
 most of the posts are about the K3, KX3 and KX2.
 Non-the-less, there are frequent posts about the legacy
 gear. Many of 
 the older posts about "how to do ..." are no longer seen,
 but those 
 questions do pop up occasionally.
 
 Many of the K2, K1 and KX1 posts come from folks who have
 purchased a 
 used transceiver.  In many cases, they did not get all
 the associated 
 pieces (counter probe for the K2, connecting cables for the
 KAT100, 
 power cables, etc.) so those new owners need assistance, and
 they do 
 often post to the reflector.
 
 73,
 Don W3FPR
