Heathkit is once again alive! The company has resurrected itself and is once again in business in California, USA. Please see their new website for more information and to see what kits are now available.

This website will be revamped in the next few months to reflect this change but in the meantime, please continue to enjoy the nostalgia of some of the original Heathkits.

Welcome to The Heathkit Virtual Museum, a tribute to the Heathkit era—a time when building electronic kits was a favorite pastime for many electronics hobbyists. This commemorative virtual showcase takes you back to the Heathkit age which began in the late 1940's and lasted through the early 1990's. Revisit your favorite kits and experience once again that excitement of building your first kit—and the hope that the equipment would work the first time you turned on the power.

"A Heathkit Story (Past & Present)" provides interesting details about the journey that Heathkit has taken over the years through its mergers, acquisitions and sell-offs. This information first appeared in the Heathkit Owners and Collectors List at <HEATH@LISTSERV.TEMPE.GOV> and has been reproduced here courtesy of author Randy Kaeding, K8TMK, one of the hams still at Heathkit.
