Scott –


I have sent the 17 page PDF of KPA500 schematics direct to you.  Note that there may have been changes since these were submitted to the FCC.



Lyn, W0LEN


PS – Sending direct because file is too big for the reflector to handle.

Hi Lyn,


I've found the FCC site:



While internal photos are available, schematics are not. They are listed, but cannot be accessed.


Do you know of another site?

They are not.  But like all such products, you can find full schematics (minus recent alterations) on the FCC website.


If you can’t find them, get back to me and I will send them to you.

Repairing the KPA500 is easier with schematics. The Elecraft website doesn't carry schematics for the '500 (or the '1500, for that matter); are schematics included in the documentation that comes with the PA?
