K2 TransceiverComprehensive 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
Both the K2 and K3 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 includes a digital voltmeter, ammeter, frequency counter (K2) and RF power meter. Microprocessor based self-alignment firmware speeds the testing of your kit.
