i am having a senior moment here. can anyone help recollect a book that was a collection of a series of articles printed in qst on learning to use semiconductors? it had amps, vfos, mixers built on copper board islands.

i am not entirely certain it was written by doug. but i cant imagine anyone else having written them.

Do you mean "Solid State Basics for the Radio Amateur" (a QST Anthology), edited by Doug DeMaw (W1FB) and Jay Rusgrove (W1VD?

Hi Farhan,

"Learning To Work with Semiconductors" By Lew McCoy & Doug DeMaw was a 6 Part Series in the April thru September 1974 issues of QST.

thanks everybody, the anthology was called "Solid State Basics for Radio Amateurs", now to forage the internet for a decent copy.
