Elecraft KX2 Transceiver
– Simply the best –
Great news! Last May 19th, at 1300h Elecraft INC has released to the world the new Elecraft KX2 Transceiver! This will be the last engineer opera from this great company : after the KX3.
It has presented as a “fit in your pocket size transceiver“. It is small, cheaper (only 749$) and powerful. What do you need more? That’s simply fantastic. It’s the resolutive QRP. Elecraft has featured the KX2 at the “Four Days In May (FDIM) Dayton Hamvention”.
The Elecraft KX2 transceiver measures 5.8 x 2.8 x 1.5″ with a weigh of 13 ounces (350 grams)!!!
It covers 80/40/30/20/17/15/12/10/6 meters band! This will be your best friend during your SOTA activation or during field day / camping trip.
The new KX2 Battery and Charger system
Apparently Elecraft will be stocking the KXBT2 (Li-ion Battery) and the charger (KXBC2) for your to order. The battery is 2650 mAH, enough for our QRP operation, yielding up to 8 hours with a single battery charge. There is obviously an internal automatic tuner module (KXAT2) which can tune a random wire or whip on every band.
The DSP present in the Elecraft KX3 is also present in the Elecraft KX2 transceiver with a powerful 32-bit DSP which offers dual watch, noise blaming and reduction as well auto-notch. RTTY and PSK data modes are already built in. No PC needed. Digital voice recorded INCLUDED!
Accessories are following:
What do you think? We believe that Elecraft KX2 transceiver is, at the present time, the best SDR portable, compact HF radio you can desire. Lighter and powerful of Yaesu FT 817.
That’s true: you will not have 2 meters band and main complain will be the non-rugged construction. It will be always a sort of “jewel” to keep under a crystal window. Definitely not to take with you in the Jungle.
