Dude..... Elecraft is a TINY priovate company
making relatively small numbers of CUSTOM products....
You are comparing them to Amazon, a
world-dominating wannabe business tyrant with 100s of BILLIONS
I order somewhere around 75% of everything we
buy through Prime....
BUT, they are different companies. NO ONE
fails to negotiate EXTREMELY favorable shipping rates with
73, <big smile>

In the case of the Elecraft SP-3 speaker it’s $36.84 to my
location, Minnesota. And yes, it adds to the total cost of
purchase not incuding the sales tax.
I like Amazon a lot, I’m a prime member and have
free shipping. I buy a lot of stuff using Amazon.
Isn't one of
the purpose for local stores was to bulk ship merchandise
to the local area to save on transportation cost?????
If a product cost $200 and shipping is $34, that add 32%
to your cost.

Yeah, if that’s the case shipping has got to be a major
factor in purchasing new gear.
I can’t imagine what shipping would cost
to ship a big radio or expensive amp now days.

kidding right? No packing material between the
box and your (soon to be CRUSHED) speaker.

Assuming the SP3 "ships flat"
(unassembled), it should fit
a USPS "Large Flat Rate Box" (12 x 12 x
6) for $19.95 any
where in the US (including KL7/KH6/KP4).
It might fit in
the side load "Medium Flat Rate Box" (12
x 3 1/4 x 13 5/8)
Regional Rate B packaging is even less
if the distance is
appropriate (e.g. California to West of
VA/NC to East of Mississippi).

I wish you good luck with the K4,
however already owning a K3 and a
K3s I have no plans to purchase the
K4. Too many rigs already, like
cameras.. If I didn’t already have
two K3’s I would be in the mood…as
the song goes.
I was going to purchase another SP-3
as I really like the one I have. I
was all set to hit the buy button
until I seen the cost to ship via
UPS, $36.84. For a light weight
item and not that big, $36.84 seems
outragous. Is this a correct price
for shipping via UPS or is it a
typo? I see the other shipping
option is via USPS Priority two day,
$38.79. I just double checked and
my eyes weren’t deceiving me. I
can’t imagine how much shipping a
KPA1500 would be.

The K4 is the replacement for the
K3S + P3. This is a long-planned
transition, and we've gradually
drawn down stocks of the latter,
including all options.
I'm sorry we can't provide options
for all of our legacy products
indefinitely. But we will of course
continue to repair and otherwise
We have three complete transceiver
product lines aside from the K3S:
The ultraportable KX2, its larger
brother the KX3 (used by many hams
as a compact home station), and the
K4, our first hybrid-SDR desktop
radio (with matching KPA1500 amp).
All are very much active and will be
for the foreseeable future.
