Been There, Done That: "...he begged his oscillator to osc and his amplifiers to amp."


This ad is from the December 1931 issue of QST.   This copy has a LOT of mileage on it.   In 1993 or 1994, David Cowhig (now WA1LBP) was living in Okinawa Japan and was operating as 7J6CBQ.   I was living in the Dominican Republic and operating as N2CQR/HI8.   We were both contributing to a 73 magazine column (as "Hambassadors"!) and we were both in the Foreign Service.   I wrote to David -- he wrote back, sending me some old QSTs, including the one from which the above ad is taken.

This ad shows that many of the homebrew/troubleshooting woes that we face today are very old.  And that having access to good technical books is very important when you are trying to overcome these difficulties.
