SWMBO gave her blessing for me to spend a bunch of money on something I've been thinking of doing for a long time.    I already own an Elecraft KX3, but I really wanted to be able to put together a K2 from the kit.    So, I have K2 S/N 7788, and here is a pictorial journal of the build.   While its not a daily set of pics, its a visual diary of a build of what I believe is one of the last (if not the very last), true kits in the same mold as the Heathkits of the 60s and 70s.    I've split the build into a few different pages, as the pics are very good quality, and the gallery takes a bit to load.

Just click on the pic to get started.
