HW-8 Bargain


HW-8 Bargain

I was up early on a Sunday morning last month, and saw a notice that a Heathkit HW-8 had been posted to Facebook late in the prior evening.  He wasn’t asking much for it, so I decided to shoot him a note and see if it was still available.  The owner wrote back, and I agreed to come look at it.

The owner stated that it was working when he last used it, but I really wasn’t concerned at the price he was offering it for.  I snapped up the deal, which included the power cord and owner’s manual.  So now I have another project on the shelf, waiting for another round-to-it.

I was never very enamored with the Heathkit QRP rigs, but I know the HW-8 is probably the most modified rig out there, and am curious to see how it works.
