I'd love to see a copy of the article, too. Unfortunately, all my
pubs were lost in a house fire while I was on a Med cruise. One of my
younger brothers was playing with a candle, and torched the 2nd & 3rd
floors at my parents house (Seth was 4 at the time. He's a lawyer now.
Is there a connection here?) and all my station gear and all my books
were lost, including my Novice QSL cards from 1966-67...

The TX was a single transistor crystal-controlled oscillator, keyed in
collector line. I ran the TX off a lantern battery (6 VDC) and the only
power measurement I made was the "How bright can you get the #49
bulb?" variety.

The local library system doesn't have "Popular Electronics" or
Illustrated" in their microfilms, so I am at a loss for a source on this

Any packrats out there with 60's magazines, other than Hugh's??
