We have all come to love the rigs designed by Doug. He's attained almost a Obiwan status among us. Now, his rigs are on display at the ARRL headquarters.

Hi Ashar and all,
Doug is a hero of mine and as a young ham (late 70's) I visited Newington and met Doug, I was speechless.
Now as an old ham I am wondering if I have it in me to return Newington to see these rigs which have meant so much to me.
It was Doug's article, QRP Barbodos Style, that has defined my ham radio career. The receiver shown was, if I am not mistaken used on a subsequent 8P6 trip.

I vividly remember that article.

I started building radios in the late 1960's and realized you had to be a metalworker to build vacuum tube equipment and that semiconductors were the future. His articles helped me understand and successfully build sold state transmitters and QRP rigs.

glen that receiver is a version of the 455kc if receiver that he builds, stage by stage in his book on learning transistors. it used his favourite line up : a 1.8 mhz receiver with 455 khz if and converters for all hf bands.
