From 1964 through 1980, my dad, Dave Nurse, W8GCD, worked for the Heath Company in Benton Harbor, Michigan. (Heath was actually located in St. Joseph, MI, but the Benton Harbor post office had a branch at the Heath plant.)

Several years ago, Make Magazine ran an article that described some of my early experiences building kits...starting long before my dad went to Heath. Needless to say, when the job opportunity came up, I was fully supportive!

Make has moved the article to a public place on their site. Click [URL="http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2008/12/the_soul_of_an_old_heathk.html?CMP=OTC-0D6B48984890"]here [/URL]to go directly to the article.
