The Heathkit Model HW-9 Deluxe QRP CW Transceiver is a compact 80-through 10-meter HF transceiver designed with the avid low-power CW operator in mind. It covers the lower 250 kHz of the 80, 40, 20, and 15-meter amateur bands. When you install the Model HWA-9 Accessory Band Pack, the transceiver also covers the 30, 17, and 12-meter WARC bands and the lower 250 kHz of the 10-meter band. Broadband circuits eliminate the need to tune circuits within a band. Just turn the Band switch and select the desired frequency.
