I don’t have a specific response on ELAD repairs. 

However like you, I have tried to contacted ELAD USA (several times) as I’m trying to buy a Duo ART 120. If anyone has a 120 for sale please contact me.

The UK agent for ELAD is Martin Lynch and Sons,    www.MLandS.co.uk,  they responded to my inquiry within 24hrs re ELAD stock situation and lead times.

Hi Guys!  Sent my Elad FDM-DUO in for repair.
Mailed my unit to the Ridgeville, SC transfer point to Italy on 3/18/2022.
It took awhile to get to Italy, but it was eventually repaired and shipped on 6/14/2022.
No info at this time, but I was advised Elad was having 'administrative issues'....
Anyone else know what may be happening with Elad?
Left phone message with Elad website for USA, but never received a reply.

Re: Pair of ELAD S2 radios for sale - CONUS/Canada only

Nice to hear from you George! It has been a while. We are still in Grants Pass. We had 2 sets of friends who moved to Bend/Redmond. Since then one couple moved somewhere in Idaho and the other moved to Bellavista, AR!

I still do lots of radio with either the G33DDC's or ELAD S2's. I also have a dual channel Afedri. I still enjoy my antenna building and such and still don't seem to have enough time to get it all done. I guess that is good!

Hi Dave, 

A good choice. The only thing that has gone wrong with my S2 is the blue light no longer works. 

Take care,

They are in perfect, like new state, with a case and filtered USB cable included. You can get your own ELAD, HDSDR or SDR Console software, as desired. I am asking $325 USD each, plus shipping. If you buy both, I offer them for $600 USD, plus shipping. PayPal would be the preferred payment method.

I originally got both them for FM DX and portable/USB use, but have too many other SDR radios, so they don't get much use.

I have decided to NOT sell my pair of ELAD S2 radios! They work well and are keepers. Doesn't seem like anyone was overly interested anyway, so I don't think I caused much disappointment. HaHa!

I don't have an antenna tuned for the band so signals aren't very strong but
they sound clear.

It could also be the SDR isn't tuned to be as sensitive out of band. But it
does work.

Re: What do you think of the Duo ART? #elad

Luis Miguel Castañeda
 

There it was a recent post from someone in ELAD about this.

Looks like supplying shortage is hitting hard and their parts orders are more than a year behind, so they are able to complete only one or two units each month depending on part arrivals. I guess anything they can build was already sold before the parts arrived.

So, if the worry is only the extra power, there are options in the market.

Re: What do you think of the Duo ART? #elad

Klaus Brosche, DK3QN
 

Hi again Jim,

Both the ART-60 and the ART-120 are marked as "Sold Out" at the ELAD webshop in Italy.

ELAD USA shows "out of stock".

WIMO in Germany indicates a delivery date "31.12.2048" (no typo!) for both versions with
integrated ATU and "about 21 days" for the non-ATU versions upon "special request".

You may draw your own conclusion from that, my conclusion would be that these products have
passed EOL.

XPA-125B:
In combination with the DUO this Amp needs to be operated manually.
I.e., band selection must be done manually, required drive power (which varies greatly from
band to band) must be set accordingly (DUO has no ALC input interface).
The integrated ATU can be used independently of the Amp in combination with the (QRP)
TRX.
---
A very cost-effective (no internal ATU) solution would be a "MX-P50M" (eBay.com, etc.)
However, this Amps has no FCC (and CE) approval!
I have two of these and they work OK.
---
A more elaborate and sophisticated alternative to the MX-P50M would be a "Hardrock-50".
I recommend looking at this Amp in detail. It is available in "Kit" form.
---
The two latter Amps provide up to between 40 and 50 Watts of RF output, which puts
your TX signal about 3dB or half an S-unit below a 100 Watts Amp (on a "true" S-meter,
like the DUO has) at the receiver side. No big deal.

Re: FDM DUO paddle (Iambic)

Klaus Brosche, DK3QN
 

Hi Jim,

No worries, it will work with the DUO!

The photo of the key (in the web) shows a connecting cable with 2x 3.5mm TRS connectors at each end.
This type of connector is exactly what the DUO requires, that is, both for hand keys as well as for paddles.

Depending on the wiring of the cable/key you may need to go to DUO menu #40 ("CW TIP") and switch
the DOT/DASH orientation with respect to the tip connection of the plug.

Just an additional remark, in case you've never operated with a paddle before:
For a right-hander, the typical orientation is such that the left paddle arm generates the DOTS, whereas
the right side paddle generates the DASHES. For a left-hander it's typically the other way around.
In any case should the thumb of your hand initiate the DOTS.

DUO menu #41 allows selection of two Iambic modes: type "A" and type "B".
There is lots of information in the web about the differences of both modes.
Choose whatever mode is more conveniant for you.

Re: What do you think of the Duo ART? #elad

I think it's a clean solution.  The other option would be to go with another brand like the Xeigu XPA125B, but I wonder how clean that amp is...
