Re: Elecraft K3/s Support

All the more reason to use appropriate antennas, low power when tuning, and disconnect them when not in use.

Following such a policy has kept my 20-year old FT-1000D’s internal 3:1 tuner fully functional  long after Yaesu stopped making and repairing them.

Elecraft is a business, not a church.  Sentimental attachments are formed by the buyers, not the manufacturers.
