Hi Eric, 
Just curious/devils advocate question. Was this unit that was reviewed, picked 
at random from stock at Elecraft? If so, or not, wouldn't it's performance be 
reflective of a population of other units manufactured? Just curious how you 
can say all others shipped were/are OK on 17, when the review unit was not? 
  
Just asking. 
  
Also curious, when radios are factory built and aligned, does Elecraft keep 
some kind of history data base of performance measurements of hose radios. kind 
od like a Certificate of Analysis/Performance, of specifications? 
  
Thanks and 73, Gene N9TF 
K3S 10057

Hi Jim - The 17 m harmonic problem was limited to the single review unit, which 
we corrected. All others shipped were/are OK on 17M.
