Congrats on the HW-9. Great rig! (obvious owner here)

If you want some good "stuff" to do to get your fingers in your new rig try
checking out the Feb 88 73 Magazine and April 88 QST. There is enough there
to keep anyone busy until summer.

Haven't tried any of the mods. My HW-9 is still factory (as factory as a
kit can be) and still a little new to me. I'll try some of the mods later
I'm sure. The notch filter looks good..and probably a keyer. I would only
consider the Super Keyer II though...and for anyone who loves keyers this is
a must have. I think it's in all the ARRL Handbooks so check it out. Under
$50 and does more than any keyer I've ever seen.
