RadioSet-GO will install your Elecraft KX2 into a rugged, water-tight Pelican enclosure. (The box has a latching lid and convenient carrying handle. Black is the default, but there are a few other color options available.) The transceiver will be mounted to a black, anodized aluminum control panel which has printed markings. The panel fits snugly into the Pelican case and is secured with standoff spacers. Heat generated from the transmitter dissipates through direct contact with the control panel.
All original KX2 jacks are extended to the front panel so you can use any accessories you normally would. The internal rechargeable li-ion battery wiring is modified, allowing it to be charged while installed via a dedicated charging jack. Another jack can be used to run the transceiver and accessories off external DC power source. The transceiver automatically switches to the higher voltage source, internal battery or external DC. The additional accessories of the retrofit conversion (mentioned below) are switched on and off between the two sources with a double throw toggle switch.
Two front facing 5 watt speakers with stereo amplification produce clean, strong, room filling audio - many times better than the built-in speaker. Left and right audio channels are maintained so it is possible to use the simultaneous dual frequency receive feature of the KX2 without needing earphones. An analog zero-beat tuning circuit illuminates LEDs across the panel making it fun to tune CW stations in quickly. (This compliments the KX2 feature which auto zero-beats a close station, and is helpful for crowded band conditions or contesting.)
Integrated capacitive touch keys (which are rounded endcaps) with an optically isolated and RF shielded circuit, allow for fast and accurate CW sending without the need of any additional key or the possibility of mechanical failure or stray RF 'self-keying'. They are mounted through the Pelican box, on the front right side by default. You may request otherwise if desired.
All original KX2 features and functions are preserved or enhanced by this conversion. If you ever decide you don't like it, with some simple tools it is easy to take the radio out of the enclosure and return it back to its original form.
Outer dimensions: 8.5" width, 7" depth, 4" height.

Don't have a KX2 but want one like this? I recommend that you order a KX2 from Elecraft, get familiar with it, and send it here to be retrofitted. Alternatively, you can order a KX2 from Elecraft and have it sent directly here to be retrofitted.
