KK4KF's Heathkit HW-7/8/9 Information Page

Welcome. In case you haven't figured it out yet, I really like the Heathkit HW-7, HW-8, and HW-9 radios. At present I only own the HW-7 and HW-8. One day I will get a HW-9.

From this page you will be able to access articles and information on these radios. As I get permission (and time to copy/type the information) I will be posting as much information and modifications on and for these radios as I can find.
