|The K1-A compact, high-performance CW rig that you can build|
|HF operation is more fun than ever these days--five watts is all you need to work worldwide DX. That's why we've packed up to four bands into our affordable, easy-to-build K1-4 transceiver. The new four-band K1-4 covers 40, 30, 20, and either 17 or 15 meters. (All band parts are supplied with the kit and 17 or 15M are chosen as the last band at build time.) You can also upgrade the K1-2 to a K1-4 by purchasing the four-band KFL1-4 module and replacing the KFL1-2 in your original K1-2. Combining a K1-4 with an extra KFL1-2 band module on 80 + (15 or 17M) gives you all six bands on your K1! Both module types simply plug in to the K1's main board, internally, and you can swap either type in at any time.
“I Can’t Believe It’s a Kit!”
As suggested by the 9-volt battery in the photo, the K1 is small - only 2.2"H x 5.2"W x 5.6"D, and weighs 1.4 pounds. Yet we've included many features you'd expect in a desk-top HF transceiver, including RIT and XIT, full break-in CW, memory keyer, three crystal filter bandwidths, configuration menu, speaker, and digital display. The K1 is styled to match our all-band K2 transceiver, with the same “look and feel,” attention to detail, and operating Mojo you'd expect from Elecraft.
An HF radio you'll never leave at home
Looking for adventure? With its low receive-mode current drain of under 60 mA, the K1 is a natural for portable operation. Add the internal battery (KBT1) and internal auto-tuner (KAT1) to create a true, all-in-one-box station! Hikers will appreciate our unique Wide-Range Tilt Stand (model KTS1), which supports the radio at any desired viewing angle. (Photo shows ground mount configuration.)
Ideal for first-time kit builders
We use only through-hole components in the K1 to make construction and testing a breeze. And our wireless design methodology eliminates nearly all point-to-point wiring. Finally, the front panel and filter boards plug directly into the RF board to form a clean, rugged assembly. You'll be tempted to leave the cover off to admire your work!
You also won't need a lab-full of test gear to align the K1. It includes a built-in digital voltmeter, wattmeter, and frequency counter.
Comprehensive Assembly Manual
You'll find the K1 manual easy to follow, with step-by-step assembly, clear illustrations and photos, and modular checkout of each major section. There's also a detailed theory of operation section, as well as a complete troubleshooting guide.
Strong Customer Support for Europe from QRPproject in Berlin, Germany. Our technical support via telephone and the Internet will get your Elecraft K1 up and running quickly. On-line manuals, frequently asked questions (FAQ), application notes and our user group e-mail list make building the K1 a great experience.
