Heathkit HW-8 CW QRP Transceiver and homebrew power supply, working
This is a Heathkit HW-8 QRP CW transceiver, in good working condition, and good overall physical condition. The front panel is in pretty good shape, with all lettering clear and easily readable. The main blemish on the front panel is a hole to the right of the frequency dial that has been filled and painted. The original knobs have been replaced with slightly larger black knobs (which I think look pretty nice). The top and bottom covers have been repainted in hunter green, which is darker than the original paint. The original audio output board has been replaced with one that is based on the LN386, which will drive a low impedance speaker or headphones. There are a few small holes in the back panel, where a board used to be installed for a mod that has been removed. The original audio filter switch has been replaced with a different rotary switch. A phono jack has been added for speaker output, and the original headphone jack has been replaced by one that breaks the circuit to the speaker phono jack when headphones are plugged in. A phono jack has been added in parallel with the original key jack. The original phono jack for the antenna has been replaced by an SO239. The transceiver covers the lower 250 KHz of the 80, 40, 20, and 15 meter bands. Output power is about 1.8 watts on 80 meters, 1.6 watts on 40 meters, 1.4 watts on 20 meters, and 1.3 watt on 15 meters (measured into a dummy load). Receive sensitivity is better than 1 uV on all bands (tested with an HP 8648B signal generator). A homebrew power supply is included, with the proper connector. The power supply is based on an MIC29502 low dropout linear regulator, and puts out about 13.75 volts. I don’t have a printed manual, but will include a CD with the manual in PDF format, and other info about improvements that can be made to the HW-8.
