Re: Elecraft K3/10 - build repor on #238

Eric Swartz - WA6HHQ, Elecraft

Hi Bob,

Have you contacted parts@... for the missing parts? I've
alerted Scott to look for your email and we will get these out to you

I apologize for the missing parts. We strive to be 100% accurate in
our kitting and it pains us immensely any time something is missing.
(I take each error like this personally as I know from my Heathkit
days how frustrating it is to be building a kit and to come up short

The missing antenna connector (SO-239) was left out of several kits
when our manufacturing supervisor was out sick. We thought we had
caught them all, but it looks like your kit slipped through.

This is the first time I've heard about a full package of screws
missing. Please make sure to look at the other areas in the kit to
make sure it is not hidden somewhere.

I have heard of individual screws missing, usually just 1 or 2,
either through a kitting error or by being lost during the customer
inventory. We do include extras of many of them, but I'm going to
increase the amount of the key screws for future kits to cover this.

73, Eric WA6HHQ

After waiting 9 months for the radio .. vital parts were missing

plus a whole pack of US style '4-40' screws unobtainable in the UK.

So despite passing all the preliminary checks #238 remains off air
for the foreseeable future. I await the missing parts from Elecraft,
who were immediately notified of the shortages upon receipt of the
package via email some 10 days ago.
