Now, I may be miss-interpreting what's happening here, but I feel is that
this whole thing is being taken "slightly" wrong by several people.

VW purposely faked the test to meet a gov't spec.

However, Elecraft sold a radio that DID meet their published specifications
for transmit IMD which are typical of other competitive radios on the
market.

THEN, they figured out a way to make an improvement, which makes them BETTER
than the typical radio for this parameter.
AND, they're willing to make the mod for free IF you handle shipping.

Believe me, the "big-three" would simply come out with a Mark II, or "A"
model and leave it at that.

And, every time I hear that they did in fact do just that, I'm that much
gladder (if that's a word) I have Elecraft's in the shack.

If I'm wrong, I'm sure I'll hear about. At which point I would offer a
retraction.
I have been known to stick my foot in my mouth on more than one occasion.

I have been a loyal Elecrafter for many years, and this seems to be somewhat
similar to the VW diesel problem.

Elecraft has sold me a radio specifying it to be in compliance with
specifications of IMD. Now you are telling me that I must bear the burden of
time and expense to bring the device you specified and guaranteed to be in
compliance, into compliance.

I built mine from a kit, so Elecraft you send me the necessary boards,
modules, whatever to bring my K3s into compliance and I will return to you
the defective boards,, modules, whatever. Then you can rework the defective
boards for the next exchange. I will spend the time and effort of
disassembly and re-assembly.
