> I hope that you're able to find an unbuilt Sierra kit or an assembled and tested one in good shape but give the KX-1 a 2nd thought - it's a really cool radio too with more features, including digital display, room for a built-in automatic tuner. It's a lot easier to travel with and operate the KX-1. My wife and I were in Starsbourg, France, and I hung a wire from the 3rd floor window straight down to within 12 feet of the sidewalk - nobody noticed -but I managed a QSO with a ham in Croatia who wanted to meet my wife and me in Budapest. Ham radio is a world-wide hobby, actually more like a brother-hood.
