Building Your Own Gear is Half the Fun!

The Elecraft K3S (Available factory assembled or as a modular kit), KPA500, KAT500, KX3, K2 and K2/100 amateur radio kits capture the excitement of building and operating your own full-featured HF radio. Discover the thrill of building and really understanding your own radio equipment. Imagine the feeling you will get from your first QSO when you tell the other operator that you built it yourself!

"I Can't Believe It's a Kit!"

Our classic K2 100% solder kit is a full-featured HF transceiver with the options you have come to expect from radios costing over three times as much. Two VFOs with multiple memories, split TX/RX operation, RIT/XIT, full break-in CW, memory keyer, narrow IF crystal filtering, excellent dynamic range and IF derived AGC are standard on the K2.

K2 Transceiver Kit

QST Magazine "The K2's receiver performance compares very favorably to that of the samples of the high-end radios we've recently examined... The fact that a radio in this price class, and a home-built one at that, can stand proudly in such company is a remarkable accomplishment."  QST K2 Product Review 

Comprehensive Assembly and User Manuals

Our illustrated step-by-step assembly instructions include modular assembly and check out of each control, receive and transmit stage. Clear instructions combined with an extensive theory of operation section make the K2 radios you can easily build, understand and even modify. (You can even download our manuals.)

Easy to Build, Understand and Repair

The Elecraft's wireless design methodology eliminates most point-to-point wiring inside the radio. Boards plug directly into each other to form a clean, rugged and open design. All boards are easily accessible for test, alignment and repair. The KX1 and K2 utilize only through-hole user installed components for easy construction.

Lab Equipment Not Required

The K3S, K2 and KX3 all include built in test firmware and equipment to make alignment and test quick and easy, without requiring a lab full of expensive test equipment. Built in equipment on the includes a digital voltmeter, ammeter, frequency counter (K2) and RF power meter. Microprocessor based self-alignment firmware speeds the testing of your kit.

Top Quality PC Boards and Components

We use professional grade printed circuit boards and components for all of our kits to make your building experience the best possible and to ensure your ultimate success.

Strong Customer Support 

Our technical support via telephone and the email will get your Elecraft kit up and running quickly. On-line manuals, Builder's Resource Web Page, trouble shooting guides and our Elecraft Email List user group (now over 5,000 builders strong) make building our kits a great experience.

How do you say Elecraft?   Ele (as in "Elegant") + Craft.
