Heathkit-Daystrom, UK - The Untold Story

I had an incredible talk with G3UUR in England on the phone yesterday.

Dave is writing a series of articles for Electric Radio Magazine.

The first is going to be out any day now in the May issue, and it's
all about the history of Heathkit's factory in England run as
"Heathkit-Daystrom."  Their stuff was entirely different and ALL made over there.
Anyone ever see a DX-100U  with the lid that raises up?
Yes there were some similarities, but even the CASES
of the rigs were built by Plessey and were not from over here.
They had a number of models of ham equipment that never sold in the USA.

Much of this information has never been documented anywhere,
and was about to be lost forever.  Dave has interviewed the
aging gentlemen who ran the U.K. Heathkit operation and
recorded what he could find out.  I am really looking forward to reading the article!
