Not broken down by prepaid levels but they did say in the Early
Notification email this:
Deposit Preorders will be shipped from the first production run in the order
received, followed by non-deposit orders.
So I wasn't sitting at the computer when the announcement hit but was
about 18 hours into the 24 hour window. So I had to look at the fully prepaid
order as nothing more than a blatant bribe to move up a few notches on the
shipping list and the free shipping.
It may not be all inclusive but the order number for SN 45 was two
minutes from N9PY's order and mine was 127 later but probably was not all
KPA1500's or all of the KPA1500s. As they said other orders were received by
other means too.
On Feb 6th Eric said they were "shipping KPA1500 for several days now".
So after almost a month there are about 50 units shipped, most likely including
engineering units . Not impressive or encouraging.
I'm not an Elecraft basher I'm Elecraft from 160 meters to 432MHZ.

I placed my order with a $1000 deposit on 8/31. I expect them to put those who
fully prepaid for their amplifiers first and those who put a $3000 deposit next

KPA1500 S/N 45 arrived at my Utah qth yesterday (Tuesday March 6) after
shipping on Friday March 2. For those of you who are closely watching
shipment progress and serial numbers, my prepaid order was placed on Aug 24 ten
minutes after the “now accepting orders” email had been sent …… and the
confirmation email was sent from Elecraft 11 minutes later … 21 minutes after
the announcement email.
