    Hi folks

    A great happening: The new K4D from ELECRAFT has arrived yesterday with us:)
    My YL Carine, HB9FZC and I have installed it yesterday and could already log some DX-QSOs on 20m to KL7 and VA2 with the new K4D - we are really very impressed about the performance as well as about the easy handling of this High-End-Transceiver:):)

    This morning we've launched the first Video about the new K4D in German language - enjoy it!


    You can find more detailled information to the K4 on our website: https://www.lutz-electronics.ch/stationaer/amateurfunkgeraete/elecraft-k4/

    hear you soon on-air:):)

    This whole thing means nothing until they are available widely to all Amateurs.

    We've been hearing how great the K4D was going to be through their marketing for the past 4 years .... .. HI

    In the meantime "Flxyaecomwood" have all come out with new radios.

    Rob Sherwood tested it recently. Although close to the top a bit disappointing as kx3 and k3s were noted better than k4d. But this is from the first batch with very low serial number so I believe that should improve soon.
    As a direct sampling radio is very good but hybrids from Yaesu scored much better and we will have to wait the top range k4 with heterodyne front end which comes at higher cost.
    Nevertheless all radios at this position are very good and possibly operating ergonomics will decide which one we like the best.

    Ein großer tag. Ein großer tag.

    if you click the GEAR/settings on youtube, you can turn on subtitles, it starts in German for some reason, but you can change it
    to anything in the whole wide wide world of sports, even British or American, and English. (click auto-translate for list)
    it is slicker than chicken fat on a doorknob! Auf Wiedersehen und
