KWS-1 in Progress

Excellent 1955 QST advertisement – this is the year the Gold Dust Twins were introduced

My KWS-1 has arrived at Howard, W3HM’s shop, and so he will be starting on the restore very soon. I predict that I will get the rig back by February, if all goes well.

I will be replacing the capacitors and a diode in the Power supply – there are 5 electrolytic capacitors – all common values, and an old germanium diode that I will replace with a new diode.
