My new toy, a Heathkit HW-8

Yesterday I managed to be the winning bidder for this little radio at the QRP Pacificon. Mike Schettler, WA6MER was kind enough to put it up, and I thank him profusely, it’s a very nice little rig. Now, I am one step closer to emulating Bill, M0HBR, as I have BOTH a Drake 2B and a Heathkit HW-8. Heh.

Addendum: My apologies for saying the word “actually” three times in once sentence. Chalk it up to me being fairly excited.
