I recently read a copy of QST for the first time in a few years.  In it (Jan
2011 or Feb 2011 maybe?) was a light weight article about the HRO and the
demand for change that drove its design.  The article is lightweight to the
point of being useless but it has references to articles from the thirties
and twenties that might be worth finding.

Come to that, every article in that issue of QST was light weight.  Can't
anybody read anything longer than two pages anymore?
