About the Author
Forrest Mims has been an electronics hobbyist since building a one tube radio kit at the age of 11. Following graduation from Texas A&M University in 1966 and service as a photo intelligence office in Vietnam, he worked for three years with high-powered lasers, solid-state instrumentation, and trained monkeys with the Air Force Weapons Laboratory in New Mexico. Since becoming a full-time writer in 1970, he's written several hundred magazine articles and scholarly papers. His articles and columns have appeared in virtually every significant electronics magazine, including Popular Electronics, Radio-Electronics, and Modern Electronics. His articles on other scientific topics have appeared in a wide range of other publications, including National Geographic World, Science Digest, Highlights for Children, and Scientific American. His editorial exploits have included an assignment from the National Enquirer to evaluate the feasibility of eavesdropping on Howard Hughes by laser (it was possible, but Forrest declined to take part) and getting dropped by Scientific American as their "The Amateur Scientist" columnist because he admitted to the magazine's editors that he was a born-again Christian. His book sales total in the millions, and he is likely the most widely-read electronics writer in the world.

Probably spent over 900 hours of my off duty time and eventually got a medal for helping the FBI, but I would give it back in a minute if they gave me back all my spare time I wasted building all those high quality kits.
When I was ORDERED to do all this I let them know I was not going to do it on my dime, and my Commander told me not to worry about that and he hooked me up with a supply man to buy all the parts. I started going to the Radio-Shack stores to get the parts I had to have, and made a point of getting many more than really needed, because I knew I would
smoke a number of parts. I also got top of the line parts and not made in China trash. Believe it or not I think I may still have some of the parts that were left over. I only wanted the Radio Shack parts but was forced to get top of the line parts.
So I may still have some top of the line MIL-SPEC parts I was forced to go with. Sorry Radio Shack. I did end up with all your books by Mims and many other books you had for sale. What a CLUSTER ..
