Absolutely, you don't have to go far before finding a swathe of redlinks to blue up.
And with that, I am now certain that you are a fool
. A Wiki-fool
"Blueing up" those items will require a lot of very specialized arcane knowledge.
Which you, as a nerd hunched over a PC in Australia, will have some difficulty obtaining.
Would you like to try? I can offer suggestions.......
Are you a member of the Tube Collector's Association
Because if you're looking for references for such articles, you will NEED to
be a TCA member, or have other access to their magazine--the only publication
in the world to run features about certain of those tubes, since the 1950s.
(No, it's not available online.)
Not to mention other resources dealing with radio and computer history,
such as the AWA Journal and old textbooks and trade magazines.
Ever been to the Computer History Museum
Their collection would be essential for reference material about computing tubes.
Can't do it all with Google. Don't even dream about looking online.
Yeah, there are two old tech articles about the Alphechon available online from republishers.
They don't say anything about how the Alphechon was actually used. One of the
TCA members actually owns an Alphechon--probably the only one in existence today.
(Poking Cas is just too easy. I feel as if I'm committing unsportsmanlike behaviour.)
