Elecraft’s approach to kit building includes Full Kits which involves building products by selecting individual components, soldering them to the circuit board, winding toroids, installing LEDs and displays, calibrating circuits to meet specified performance levels.
Unlike other radio companies today, Elecraft Full Kits fulfill the Hands On Ham Radio promise of having the experience of completely building a radio or option from scratch, following time honored assembly manuals, checking off each step as the builder witnesses the birth of the very radio they will operate.
Assembly Manuals are available for download so you can decide for yourself if you want to build a Full Kit. All Full Kit products are available in kit form only. Elecraft also has Builders for Hire if you choose. So, the choice is yours.
