Thank you for clearing that up. I didn't think the tunnel diode was instrumental in the FTM.
Now I also will take a stab and say the tunnel diode is a plasma diode, not solid state. Even though solid state was starting to become prevalent in the late 1950s, tubes were still the king then, especially in high power applications.

Posting for the timeline record. I'm sure that it is entirely coincidental that TTB was turning in his USN resignation right about this time.

A while back I read this on this thread.http://www.mecpublishing.com
Simply stated, the universe we live in is not expanding at all but is a closed space, possibly elliptical or egg-shaped cavity, possibly a cave with an opening with a reflective surface. We live in a very large mirrored room. We are about one million light-years from the nearest wall and around eight million light-years from the far wall which is in the general direction of the Virgo Cluster. There could be fewer than a hundred real galaxies, all the rest are reflected images of those real ones.
I got to thinking about this open Universe verses closed universe deal.....
I found this:

A closed universe.......
Now that throws a monkey wrench into Newton's calculus dosen't it?

Kevin, you see what you see
