Elecraft K1-4/KFL1-4 discon.

http://www.elecraft.com/elecraft_prod_list.htm#k1 からK1-4とKFL1-4 (4-band filter module)が消えている。

Re: [Elecraft] K1-4 4 band version gone?
Wayne Burdick Thu, 17 Jul 2014 11:44:21 -0700

The 4-band module requires extremely low-temperature-coefficient trimmer
capacitors because of its narrow-band pre-mix and RF band-pass filters. The
last source for these exotic trimmers dried up recently. A redesign using
higher-TC trimmers might be possible, but the filters would end up being
triple-tuned, which would force the use of SMD components throughout, and
tuning the filters would then be very difficult without a spectrum analyzer.

Sales volume for the K1 has decreased in recent years due to the KX1 (which is
smaller and has a DDS VFO), and the KX3 (which covers all bands, all modes,
with up to 12 W output and has a much more capable auto tuner, nicer user
interface, etc.). So the cost of a redesign wouldn't be recovered.

That said, for the time being we're continuing to offer the two-band version
and the other options (KAT1 ATU, KBT1 battery pack, etc.). The K1 is one of our
"full" kits, and has a bit of a fan club of its own.

We'll update the website to reflect the change in option availability.

Elecraft price increase coming in April.

[Elecraft] Elecraft price increase coming in April.
Eric Swartz - WA6HHQ, Elecraft Wed, 26 Mar 2014 18:34:19 -0700


This is an early notice for everyone that we will be increasing prices slightly on our radios and other products before the end of next month (April). As always, any orders placed before that point will be honored at today's pricing.

Please resist the urge to ask our sales or support staff for more specifics on what prices are changing and the exact date for the changes, as they do not have any additional information. We are still reviewing our complete product line to determine where we need to change pricing, so I can't be more specific on which specific products will increase in price, or by how much. (We've been absorbing a lot of supplier cost increases over the past two years.)

As always, we strive to keep these changes as small as possible, and to absorb cost increases where ever possible.

Rockmite ][

There comes a time in everyone’s career when it’s time to call it quits. Due to continued demand for the popular RockMite, it’s being continued by another QRP supplier.

A RockMite successor is now available! It’s called the ‘RockMite ][‘ and is being sold by the very capable Rex Harper, W1REX. For further information or to order, see

Small Wonder Labs、店じまい

10月10日、Dave, K1SWLはSmall Wonder Labsの閉店をアナウンスした。
Rock Miteについては、他ベンダーからの発売の可能性を探るべく調整中。

A Supplier of Quality Kits for the Amateur Radio Enthusiast, 1996-2013


There comes a time in everyone’s career when they’ve ‘had enough!’ I’ve reached that point. Effective immediately, I am closing Small Wonder Labs I have discontinued sales of the RockMite, and will ship out the last several dozen orders shortly. I’ll continue to support requests for replacement/ missing RockMite parts from existing customers over the short term.

I’m now coordinating with another QRP vendor to have him assume production/sales of the RockMite. . I’ll update this site with further information once arrangements are finalized.

I’ll keep the Small Wonder Labs website active for a year, and it’ll maintain documentation for my earlier products.

・ I do not keep parts inventory for long-discontinued kits. www.kitsandparts.com has an extensive selection of parts for builders.
・ I do not have ‘just one more board’ for any of my discontinued kits. Please don’t ask!

I’ve finished our home here in the woods of New Hampshire, and it’s time for me to move on to other interests. I’m now racing the calendar to close in a garage/barn before winter. The garden grows larger each year, there’s always firewood to cut and split. . In our spare time, there’s a wealth of other outdoor activities. Retirement is clearly not for the faint-of-heart.

I’d like to extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone who’s purchased my kits over the years- you’ve been great, and it was fun!
