"22 Years of Elecraft" by Eric Swartz, WA6HHQ

A short history of Elecraft, including lots of products, behind the scenes pictures, crazy customers, DXpeditions and a lot of fun!

Eric Swartz, WA6HHQ, is Elecraft's Chief Operating Officer, a co-designer of Elecraft's K4, K3S, K2, and other transceivers, and co-founder of Elecraft in 1998 with Wayne Burdick, N6KR.  Licensed 49 years, he credits his early interest in Amateur Radio with leading him to a career in electronic design and management. He received his B.S. in Engineering and Applied Science from Yale University and has been involved in a number of successful Silicon Valley startups.  Prior to Elecraft, Eric was co-founder and President of Verisys, a test equipment manufacturer of high-performance protocol analyzers for the mass storage market.
