As I made it through each section and passed the checkouts it was a cool feeling to see the radio come together, it slowly move toward completion. Once the KX1 was complete there was the accessories to build as well such as the internal antenna tuner. By this time I was getting itchy for completing the kit and seeing it worked on the air. The KX1 is a radio that is for portable operation so the components have to be a certain height that way when the options such as the antenna tuner is added it actually will fit. I will say it sure was a tight fit but following the very well laid out instructions you will have no troubles. I did want to take a moment and briefly mention the Elecraft support. It is by far the best ever, the only thing I can say is purchase a kit and find out for yourself. The whole team at Elecraft go over and far far above to make sure your kit building is a success and that you have answers to your problems. Their goal is to turn your problems into success.
