Re: K3S parts availability???
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
It is heartening to see that Elecraft is researching what parts might be in demand for the K3 and K3S. I purchased my K3,P3, KPA500 and KAT500 about 10 years ago. It goes without saying it is the best radio I have ever had, not that I have any experience with some of the high end radios made by the big three. I know that there is anxiety over the ability to continue to repair and replace vital parts for these Elecraft radios. But I wonder how long Yaesu, Kenwood, Icom, etc repair and provide spare parts for their legacy radios? It is not surprising that Elecraft has to decide to end support at some level. I perhaps have one more radio upgrade in my future...maybe a K4.

Fred, I agree with you that it’s disappointing from a company that enjoys such a stellar reputation for support to discontinue their flagship product without adequate parts in inventory to provide continued support for the product.
