Default 30 Years Ago: Has anyone made any homemade valves (tubes), semiconductors ...

This is from a web-site that is replaying Usenet, and rec.ham-radio,
from 30 years ago (currently summer 1990). The site is:

http://www.olduse.net

If you prefer to use your own newsreader, the site also supports an NNTP
connection at:

nntp.olduse.net:119


I followed that for a while a couple of years ago, when it covered the
very early days of usenet where you could still read "everything" and
administrators were keeping the hardware of their PDP11 running using
erasers etc. That was very interesting!

What would these people who thought radio is becoming too complicated
because of all the semiconductors have thought when 25 years later
radio transformed from a hardware job into a software (SDR) job?? :-)

Unfortunately, Brian Kantor did not live to be 85 years old and become
as wild as his grandpa... :-(
