It has been a while since I have written anything on my blog but this is mainly because I have been rather busy.  The antenna business ( www.m0cvoantennas.com ) went from being busy to very busy at the beginning of the year and has remained so since.  In March of this year I was given the opportunity to take over as Director of K.W.Electronics Limited (Company #08587607).  progress was slow at first but in July 2019 I received certificates transferring over the title of Director to myself.

KW Electronics was first founded in the 1950s by G8KW.  They produced many receivers, transmitters and accessories for the amateur radio market, the most famous being the KW Vanguard Transmitter that featured in Dr. No, the 1962 James Bond film as can be seen HERE.
Now under new ownership, KW Electronics Limited is all set to bring you new products aimed at the amateur radio and commercial radio market suitable for the 21st Century.
The first products introduced to the new KW Electronics company profile are a Morse Code Practice Oscillator, either completed and boxed or the same in kit form (not including the box.

There are other things currently being worked on such as a VHF preamp and an all band active antenna (both for RX only).  We also currently have an all band HF antenna – the KW-V – which is the CHAD (Compact Helical Asymmetric Dipole) developed by Ken Ginn, G8NDL.  However, as we are awaiting some parts this is not currently available.
