[Elecraft] [Elecraft-K3] Latest on the new home for my K3...

Yes, I’d like to know to and the source of the cable trays.
It’s very neat and professional.

Mind you, it seems to me, that lots of cool stuff is not available from UK suppliers :-(

This story concerns four people – Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.
There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.
Anybody could have done it but in the end Nobody did it.
Everybody got very angry over this because it really was Somebody’s job.
Everybody thought Somebody would do it, but Nobody realised that Anybody wouldn’t do it
It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when actually Nobody had asked Anybody.

I ABSOLUTELY understand, and identify! <big smile>

Could you clue us in on how you sourced/built that panel?  I'd love to have access to something like that!

Thanks Clay...  I decided to add the patch panel because I am sick of haveing to rewire everything I want to change an antenna!  That and it feeds my OCD issues. :)

I am undertaking a full rebuild of my operating position, note the Patch Panel does not say K3 on it...  That means I can replace things with a K4 later...  :)

Dave.

Cable trays like those are available in the UK from most electrical wholesalers.

Front panel design is administered for Europe (inc. UK) by Schaeffer in Germany: http://www.schaeffer-ag.de and their service is excellent, if perhaps a bit expensive for one-offs.

Front Panel Design does take some getting used to, but once you learn how to use it, it's very powerful and accurate. and you can submit your design direct to Schaeffer.

I designed a new case for my 2 metre linear and submitted it to them. It was made and shipped in about 2 weeks.

I'm just about to put photos of the linear on my website. I'll let you know when they're available to view. I presume we still can't submit images to this forum?
