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。
調べてみると、4バンドモジュールで使っているパーツが入手できなくなったためにディスコンとなったらしい。2バンドモジュールは継続。

Re: [Elecraft] K1-4 4 band version gone?

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.
