Hi folks,
        You may have seen it on a Drake reflector, but I think it's suitable to
spread the word here;
        There's a new book, "A Family Affair" - The R.L. Drake Story, written by
John Loughmiller, KB9AT, and just yesterday released for sale and immediate
delivery.  It's over 300 pages, a history of the company gleaned from
personal interviews by John with present & prior employees, and a big
appendix with technical info which is about 50/50 tube and TR-7 and runs
about 150 pages.  Much of the TR-7 info has not been published b4.

        It's priced at $29.95 plus shipping and handling, direct from the author.
        Take a look at  for more info & ordering info.

I have no monetary connection with the book, tho' I did contribute a little
technical info.
