Has anyone heard if they're shipping yet?
Yes, I have heard “if”?
Not really. There're a few out there but not shipping in any number and there's a long paid up waiting list.
I've pretty much decided to Not upgrade to a K4
By the time they finally get it to market and out the door
I may as well just look at a newer radio from someone else.
Give up the waiting
Go get a 101 or a 7610
At this point the K4 is trying to play catch-up with software upgrades.
Last year at Hamcation they were trying to make the front screen look like a 7610/ which had already been out a couple of years/now the 101 has been out almost a year.
Even with all the up front cash deposits $$$$ The Competitors have passed them.
If they could have got it out 2 years ago/ they would have been good.
So just go out and buy a radio that you can get right now and that's been tested and proven.
I wanted one two but over 2 years of waiting that is just too long. I've been enjoying using the other brands that are out.
I hear a lot of guys saying "life is too short to wait for a K4" get on the Air and have some fun.
IDK. It's got a heck of a lot of interesting features and capabilities. I'm thinking about it, but am in no rush. I'm enjoying other brands in the meantime.
I doubt anyone is waiting for a K4 to “get on the air”.
That gets my vote, OM.
Get a 101 or 7610. When/if it becomes easier to obtain a K4, sell the 101 or 7610 and get one. If you think you still need to...which you may not.
It's easy to opine from the side line, (that rhymes!) but I'll reserve judgement until I have one side-by-side with my other rigs.
