But, isn't it ironic that the Elecraft K2 has better receiver
characteristics than any of the mult-kilobuck rigs?
As K9AY put it to me a couple of months ago, "The K2 is a very simple
radio, superbly executed." Go to <http://www.elecraft.com> and download
the manuals and schematics. He's right.
It doesn't take highly-sophisticated technology to produce superior
receiver performance. What it takes is a dedication on the part of the
designer to produce a quality product -- and not just to use some trendy,
