Re: internal tuners sold out
My only a guess, is it’s the change of *contractors* to employees per the California state law, plus additional requirments for small businesses in California. I would advise Elecraft to reform their business to another state which is more small business frendly. Maybe Texas for one.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Plus, you won’t have to deal with an earthquake that is coming sometime in the future.

I also surprised by this ... I think of the K3S as a "new" radio. Was going to upgrade one of my elder K3 rigs, but if stuff isn't available ... for repair/replacement ...
Besides, is the K4 tuner so radically different than a K3 model? I'd have thought they were identical .. that tuner is not a weak point in the system. Or was it?

Having been and still are an Elecraft owner since 2007, I’m a bit taken aback from the sudden abandonment of the K3/s line of radios and the acsssories/options. What is going on that has caused this change??

It almost apears they are going out of business. Sad to see this.

Yep.... IF you want K3(s) parts, especially major assemblies, you'd best get them soon.
I got THE last NIB sub-RX on the shelf a week or so ago... They DO have some factory refurbs available...
Here's the status I got on December 30th: (I'll bet it's changed a bunch since then. NOTE: this is only a list of statuses on the parts I was ordering.)
