For Sale - Original WJ Tech Notes

Watkins-Johnson Tech Notes were small pamphlets covering technical topics of interest to WJ customers as well as engineers in the government and industry. Several WJ staff have told me the company's success arose from bringing young engineers into "WJ University." WJ Tech Notes can, in one sense, be viewed as a trade/scientific journal for the specialized interests in the SIGINT, ELINT, space communications and semiconductor industries.

The documents for sale are Watkins-Johnson color originals obtained from the estate of a long-time WJ factory depot technician. The vast majority are in very good to excellent condition. If my stock runs low and substandard copies are available, you will be contacted with a full description and a request for confirmation before shipping.

Tech Note March April 1978 WJ Tech Notes January February 1987
