The "Back to the Future" Project
Doug DeMaw, W1FB, was one of the founding fathers of QRP building and design. He authored several hundred articles for QST, and several books that are still used daily by QRPers throughout the world. NorCal has decided to honor Doug with a tribute that we think he would have enjoyed, the "Back to the Future" project. We will update a series of projects that were first presented over 20 years ago with modern available parts, and also will provide circuit boards to fit those parts for those who wish to build these designs. The first of these projects is the Tuna Tin 2, designed by Doug himself. The "Back to the Future" project is hereby dedicated to the memory of Doug DeMaw, W1FB, enjoy.
72, Doug, KI6DS
