It would really suck for those in the middle of taking a course. All of a sudden their investment is gone. I wonder what the government and companies did when the student could not prove completion at the end where they would normally get reimbursed.

Is there any mention in the Letters section, usually around page 12.

My Poptronics subscription ran out on April 2000.

Dean Just curious-- in your archive of old electronics magazines, do you still have the Radio-Electronics copy of March, 1968. There is a construction project in it titled "A Modulation Oscilloscope". This was the very first article I authored. I had just started working in an R&D lab fulltime and ...

Well, I haven't thrown them out yet. I've got them stacked up in a box ready to take out to the dumpster tomorrow.

I've been carrying these things back and forth across the country too many times over the past 20 some years. I am tearing out several interesting articles out of some of them.
