Elecraft KX1 Transceiver

In 2004, after four K2's, I thought was time for a change and so I ordered the KX1 ultraportable transceiver kit (no longer available). Equipped with the KXAT1 automatic tuner, the KXB30 30m-adapter and the KXPD1 paddle I already had and think I'll have a lot of fun with this tiny toy.
