This was the cover for the July 1967 issue of QST, plus
the top of the first page of the two part paper related to
the cover. Just a day or so ago I
received the latest QST, April
2017. It had a photo of the April 1967 QST cover
on page 110 in the "100, 50, and 25 Years Ago"
column. Both George and I were pleased to see
that familiar cover, but disappointed to see nothing more
about the article. Will Alexander, WA6RDZ,
is unfortunately a "Silent Key."
I have very fond memories of the project. The
three of us would often meet for Pizza for lunch and talk
about the project. I learned a lot from both of these
follows. It was a wonderful receiver for the
day, offering really great performance. My
version was, of course, Ugly to the Core where
George's was a thing of beauty. I
worked a lot of fun DX with mine (as did
George with his), and it was the beginning of more
interesting things to come. I was very lucky
to have hooked up with those two fellows from Fairchild
Semiconductor in that era when people were just starting to use
the term "Silicon Valley."
