KX3 on its way?

I opened my mailbox this morning to discover the email that hundreds if not thousands of hams worldwide have been waiting for - a shipping notification from UPS to say that a 5lb package from Elecraft is on its way!

A 5lb package from Elecraft? What could that be? Ah. it must be the KX3 I didn't order.

That's right. Didn't order. I haven't ordered a KX3! I'm not saying I'm never going to, but I am not even going to think about it until such time as orders are fulfilled off the shelf. At the moment I believe that the lead time for an Elecraft KX3 ordered today is about 4 months. These days I just don't plan that far ahead.

I forwarded the email to Elecraft Sales in the hope that they can figure out who this notification should really have gone to and why it came to me. But for a brief moment this morning I thought this was going to be my lucky day!

Perhaps someone ordered one for you as a gift!

Perhaps it is too late and it's already on the way to you :-) Resistance is futile!

I think I would have sat on it for a while to see what happened, hi hi!

BTW, I see your Followers widget now has the same glitch as the one on my page (or perhaps it's a local problem here, using FF 12).

The other week I too received a notice from Elecraft that something was on it's way to me. I never ordered anything so I gave them a call. Turns out this was not even close to 5 pounds but a mod for my K3 so I can use my P3 with the P3SVGA card installed.
Do let us know what's up when you find out.

Hmmm.. Maybe our computer decided to send it!
