Heathkit is back!

I don't know how many of you have built a Heathkit. My first Heathkit was a HW-100. Then a HW-16. Lastly, an HW-101. I also put together their first digital clock, a VTVM, HW-2036, and a spectrum monitor.

Is that nerdy enough for everyone?

My first project from the New Healthkit is going to be their GC-1006 clock.

The old GC-1005 from 1973.

My Ham Station in the barracks, Augsburg, Germany. (1973)

That's the HW-16 Transceiver with VFO and GC-1005 clock.

Yes I have put together a few. Good to see they are back.

I was in my mid teens when they stopped, loved their catalog but was to expensive for me at the time.

Heathkit

Is that any relation to Heathcliff?
