Hi Bill,

Any chance of you emailing a scan of the cover and MITS Altair article? I would love to read it.

Thanks.

I would if I could. I don't have a scanner set up at the moment.

Cheers.

Cool!

I remember buying some of those issues - fondly remember running down to Mayfair market in San Mateo with my allowance change to get Pop. Electronics, Radio-Electronics and Electronics Illustrated.

I remember getting the Aug? Sep? 1974 issue right before the family trip to Oregon - it had Don Lancaster's "Scopewriter", kinda a TV typewriter adapted for an oscilloscope. Very cool.

In 1975 I was in 5th grade but already fascinated by
calculators, computers electronics and ham radio. I drooled over the HP calc displays at Macy's and, even then, knew why RPN was better.
