    The Elecraft K4 is the latest and greatest HF Ham Radio Transceiver from Elecraft and today I get to sit down in front of one and go through some menus, plus show all of the buttons, ports and connections, and awesome touchscreen!

    ANT 4 is for a future transverter option, and TX SMPL is for "pure signal" or similar pre-distortion with the KPA1500. Neither option is ready yet.

    I was able to meet the Yalie co-founder of Elecraft at the New England ARRL Convention in '19, and he was a very nice guy. He brought a K4 for display; beautiful rig.

    Fight Fiercely, Harvard! 34 - 31.

    There are 2 current BNC ports in the back for Transverters now, seems odd that would be a later option also.

    Though K4 is really something, I kept finding my eyes drifting to the K3.

    Interesting radio. Good to see they are still offering double superhet modules.

    My K4D is significantly quieter than my K3S. Super radio. Teams up perfectly with the KPA1500.

    Mhh...canĀ“t tell how it will be in technical specs and please don't hit me for this, but the Interface (GUI) looks like 7610 as already mentioned, but little bit oldscool like Windows 3.11.
