Elecraft K3 in consegna !

Sono iniziate le consegne del nuovo Elecraft K3. Ecco il comunicato di Eric WA6HHQ e Wayne N6KR dal sito Elecraft:

"The first production K3s started shipping today! (Oct 9th) :-) We worked overtime last week and through the weekend to get everything in order. We had the usual last minute glitches (missing hardware we thought we had received, MORE toroid winding in Aptos, minor PCB assembly errors, documentation snafu's etc.) but we were able to resolve everything in time for shipping today. Whew! Here's a picture of Lisa with the first K3/100 kit of this batch going out the door. :-) After today's batch of K3s we will pause shipping for two days to let the dust settle and to make doubly sure we have everything in proper order. We will continue testing and packaging the K3 kits tomorrow and Thursday. We'll resume shipping on Friday and should continue shipping on a daily basis, Monday-Friday, after that. This week we are beginning with the kit versions of the K3. Mid next week the first built K3s will begin rolling out the door. The rest of this week we will be contacting those of you that will be shipping over the next two weeks. Due to the very high number of orders that we received the first day at Visalia and via FAX/Internet (actually the first couple of weeks!) we will not be shipping all the first day orders on the first day, or two, or three. :-) But we are working hard to get everyone's K3 out the door quickly. Initial shipment rates will of course start out in small groups and slowly accelerate to more units per day as we ramp up. But our top priority to to make sure we get you a complete and quality product. Please be patient with us. We're just as anxious as you to get your radio on its way. The K3 Operating manual is complete and I'll be posting it and the K3 option manuals to the web by end of day tomorrow. I'll post a note here when they are on-line. Now, where is that champagne...73, Eric WA6HHQ and Wayne, N6KR"
