Heathkit Saga Update
The still-anonymous new owners of Heathkit have posted a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page on the heathkit.com website <http://www.heathkit.com/heathkit-faq.html>.
They say they definitely plan to bring totally new kits to market, and "likely" revivals of older kits as well. About themselves, they will only say that they are all kit-builders and ham radio operators, and feel that revealing their identities at this time will distract them from the task of getting the company off the ground.
The August issue of CQ will carry an article by Editor Rich Moseson, W2VU, on what is and isn't known (as of press time) about the company and its new owners.
