This is a Collins KWM-1 10,15,20 meter transceiver. This was the first transceiver Art Collins manufactured for the amateur
community. The first amateur operator to actually put one of these on the air is Ted Henry from Henry Radio. The distributors
of Great high power amplifiers. He just received a pro-type from Art Collins one day before his wife, and himself headed
out to the South Pacific for a DX'pedition. This happen in 1958 or 1959. There is a article in QST about the whole adventure.
Well this is my antenna system, it consists of a U.S. Tower 38 ft. with 30 sq.ft.of windload along
with a M2 OR-2800 rotor. The antenna's from the top are Comet CX-333 144/220/440 MHZ vertical, M2 2M18XXX 18 element
on a 36 ft.boom for 2 meters, M2 6M2WLC 9 element 39.6 ft.boom for 6 meters, and the Hygain
TH-11DX 11 element 10,12,15,17,20 meter 5 band beam on a 24 ft.boom, 40 meter inverted V dipole. It's a modest
station, but works well..........73
