Some quick notes: Li-on battery for 8 hours of "transceiver operation", must be removed to be charged. 80-10 meter band SSB, CW, Data modes Small, lightweight No filter options $749 I'm currently radio-less in HF and my QTH is not possible to play radio from. I was heavily leaning towards an 817ND, but I think this may be a better fit for me. Anyone going to FDIM that can play with this thing and bring back details? http://www.hamlife.jp/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/elecraft-kx2-005.png http://www.southgatearc.org/news/2016/may/new_kx2_radio_to_be_announce_at_dayton_hamvention.htm Hello to all, We are please to announce a new radio to complement the KX3 and the KX-Line.
