Elecraft will reportedly be introducing a new “pocket-size” transceiver at the FDIM (Four Days In May) QRP event, as part of the Dayton Hamfest activities. Here’s what Elecraft says in their announcement to dealers:
We are pleased to announce a new radio to complement the KX3 and the KX-Line. Here are the details.
What: Elecraft announces the KX2, Ultra-portable radio
When: Thursday, May 16th, 1300Z
Where: Four Days In May QRP event, part of the Dayton Hamfest activities
Elecraft is excited to announce a new radio targeting the Ultra-portable market with a Fit-In-Your-Pocket size. Please see the attached brochure for details.
It’s official, the Elecraft KX2 is available now. From Elecraft: “It’s only 5.8 x 2.8 x 1.5” and weighs just 13 ounces—making it the smallest full-featured HF radio on the planet. Yet it puts out up to 10 watts, covers 9 bands, and shares many features with the KX3. It also works with the KXPA100 amplifier.”
