Builders for Hire - United States

Here are some hams who are willing to build K1's, K2's, K3Ss, KPA500s and our other kits for others. Some will charge less for those who cannot build a kit themselves due to a disability, etc. All are friendly and helpful people who really enjoy building!

It is assumed that kits built for you will be for your own personal use, not for resale, unless specifically agreed to between builder and buyer.

Note to Buyers
Elecraft can't officially vouch for the skills or guarantee the work of those listed below, but most are experienced builders. Your agreement for building your kit is with the builder and not with Elecraft. Please contact them for more information and references.

Note to Builders
We suggest that you charge a reasonable fee for kit construction--this will acknowledge your effort and affirm the buyer's sincerity. Of course you can build for little or no fee if you wish, but give this gift of your time wisely. (Elecraft cannot provide assurances that a particular buyer is likely to be acting in good faith.)

If you would like to be added to or removed from this list, if you find that an email is incorrect for any of those listed below, please email us.
