      Hello to all...

      The "heathkit green" color was a special order thing back in the early 60's. It is VERY rare indeed...especially on an Original.

      Pictures are now posted in the photo section under VE3AKV (second page).

      The only recent "greens" I've found are on Vibrokeyers and there are very few of those around for whatever reason. The crazy part is the asking price online for these "green" vibrokeyers...upwards of $250 USD.

      The Original I have, functions wonderfully, is smooth and fast - BUT IT'S GREEN! I bought it because it was different. It certainly has been a conversation piece with the locals who care about such things :)

      BTW - I might be persuaded to part with this bug...cash is good, trades are better... :)

          Hey there Gary...

          WOW - that was fast... ;)

          Something "bug" or CW related I would think might be of interest.

          I also build and collect QRP rigs. I've got a couple of K1's and a K2 plus some Small Wonders Labs stuff too.

          I'm open to ideas.
