T. Kinnunen found KW And is in outburst at the magnitude of 15.0 on October 22 (vsnet-campaign 537). From 2-hour time-series observation on October 26, Ouda team reported a possible short-term modulation with its amplitude of 0.2mag (vsnet-campaign 540). H. Yamaoka performed astrometry using Ouda image, and reported it seems secure that the USNO_A2.0 star at (end figures) 18s.00, 02".1 is identical to KW And, whose USNO_A2.0 rmag = 17.8 and bmag = 18.6. It seems that Kurochkin, 1977 is the only one reference of the type identification (UG) and the GCVS minimum magnitude(22:p) (vsnet-campaign-dn 224). T. Kato and H. Iwamatsu confirmed the magnitude is going down to about 17.5mag on November 1 (vsnet-campaign-dn 228).
