Following the success of KW Days earlier in the year, it’s back again. The first weekend of January, the 3rd and 4th, marks the anniversary of Britain’s most successful amateur radio manufacturing company in 1956. Collectors, ex-employees, clubs and friends of KW will be active on AM on the VMARS channels and SSB throughout the weekend around 1.977, 3.77, 7.177 and 14.277MHz. More information on this and all things KW can be found by searching the internet for the KW Yahoo Group.
