HEATHKIT HW-7

Back to the Future Project

Hello and welcome to my Heathkit HW-7 Back to the Future Project.  I love to operate CW and to take my radios out in the field. I believe the Heathkit HW-7 was the very first QRP rig produced in kit form by Heathkit sometime around 1972.  I was first licensed in 1973 so this rig is special to me. This puts this rig at the top of my list to take to the field for portable operation.  But, the radio has a really bad receiver so I'll have to do lot's of work on it to get it up to present day standards.  I'm calling this process my, "HW-7 Back to the Future Project."
