I know one prior owner in the Milwaukee area who traded his KW-1 for a 
house-painting job.  I asked him why and he said "I needed the house 
painted" ;-)  This was back in the 70s when all he figured if it was 
just useful for CW or as a linear, he could do that with a much smaller rig.

Yeah, he's still kicking himself!
