Kirt, I loved your factoid on the trips to the
areospace labs at UM. I was a student there in
the 1970s - about the time you were roaming. Now
I have someone to blame my less-than-successful
lab assignments on
It really brought back memories.
worked for NASA as an electrical engineer for
almost 30 years now, mostly at Langley. You
would have loved working here. It's like a kid
in a candy shop. We've had upand down times, but
overall a really great career. My bad back will
force me to take early retirement. It's great to
have a site like RF Cafe to visit on a daily
basis for a perfect mix of technical content and
humor/personal interest. I can really relate to
all the Estes rockets you flew way back when.
Well, buddy, take care, and keep up the
great work! Maybe we'll meet af a flying event
some day - I'll look for an RF Cafe T-shirt!
