    Thanks, Herb. In my younger days, I used to drool over the Heathkit catalog 
and later was able to build some kits in the '70s. IP-2718 triple output power 
supply (which I still use), IT-3120 FET/Transistor tester, IG-5218 Sine/Square 
wave generator, and a GDA-405-D 8-channel R/C transmitter for my father. The 
first kit I built though, was a Knight-Kit Star Roamer short wave receiver 
(tubes). The Heathkit manuals were outstanding.

    I wasn't able to afford any of the Heath computer gear back then, but I now 
have H8 and Z90 computers, and a H19 terminal.
