|Heathkit HW-7 circa 1973|

|I think this speaker is a good match for the little HW-7|
|The Elecraft AF-1 really works well in the shack but not suited for portable work|
I really need to do that following things.
1. Get a keyer to work
2. Replace the clunky TR relay (I wonder if that would solve number 1)
3. Add a RIT as there is no offset
4. Add an INTERNAL audio filter and amp
5. Get rid of the power supply hum
It was a real thrill to use the radio today. My plan is to take it out to a SOTA summit and do a vintage SOTA activation. Of course I plan to use it in the shack from time to time as well and am looking forward to putting it on the air for the ARRL 2015 Straight Key Night.
