The lede from the November 2018 Elecraft Newsletter begins like this:
“20 years ago this month, we were putting the finishing touches on our first product, the K2. Wayne (N6KR) was busy finalizing the firmware and manual. Eric (WA6HHQ) had purchased all the parts for our first production run and was building the web site. With a staff of just five people – plus the enthusiasm and support of 100 dedicated field testers – we were ready for prime time”.
I can’t believe it’s already been 20 years. Time flies. I built K2 #524 in 1999 and that launched my journey as a dedicated low-power enthusiast.
Speaking of the monthly newsletter, it has been published fairly regularly during 2018 and in a recent post to the Elecraft mailing list, Wayne Burdick said they are looking for article submissions concerning “Elecraft gear, or of general interest”.
Sharpen your pencils and get cracking.
