Jon,
I wonder if you might make all the details available to Doug Hendricks,
editor of QRPp, who has had some good luck in arranging for reprinting
permission. If he believes that interest is high enough and can find
time from his parts counting for the new NORCAL kit, he might be able to
make the details available in print, where many of us could study them in
detail slowly. Or, if an editor of one of the other QRP journals would
like to take up the subject, they might contact you directly as a first
step in a reprint process. For many rigs, up or down counting the VFO (in
numerous kits, less than 4 MHz) last 3 kHz digits, with offsets as needed,
would answer needs. But a full HF spectrum counter is also useful.

Thanks for the notice on the idea. Wonder how many others are interested.
