Just received my new Elecraft K3 kit SN:7999 
Now to build it!  It should take 10-20 hours to put it all together.  It looks like they sent me 1000 screws ... lol.  No soldering required though.

It was a bunch of non-information.

Re-built band switch for the FL-2100 

They have a tendency to melt the contacts if not tuned properly.

This on was not too bad, I was able to move an unused contact to the bad position.

Finally was able to get Wake Island: K9W this morning on 40m SSB.
With my modest 100 Watts and a dipole!
It was actually the first time I heard them fairly strong, a definite 59+ from them into Atlanta.  I still need T33A.

Yaesu FL-2100b band switch repair.  

I removed the bad contact rivet and one of the unused contact rivets.  the rivets could not be re-used so I found a suitable screw/nut (non-fetus) and used that.  

I also had to replace a few of the doorknob Caps because they were cracked.

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station:
The North Fulton Amateur Radio League did an awesome job with their ARISS contact today.  I'm proud to be a member! 
 
Here is a link to the audio, if it doesnt play in your browser, download it and play it locally.

You start to wonder if they will make contact at the 4-5 minute mark, but hang in there they do!
