FT-817 QRP radio survives 3 foot drop

i at first was going to break out in tears after seeing what happened since this is a $1000 radio here in Canada

‪WTF Carl can you not be more careful? The 817 is rugged and the brackets saved the day. Any Elecraft  KX3/KX2 volunteers?

I had the great Chameleon V4 antenna mated to my FT817 until it was stolen off my vehicle

    I never never do the test dropping my lovely KX2! because it looks like weak for the shock. Toughness is the important sales point for ft-817ND. I agree! de JP1QEC MOT from Japan.
