Dear Bob,

There are members of this group who were principal
factors at Alpha through the years, and each of them,
with their glorious visions, made Alpha the true king
of R.F. Amplifiers.

I've owned Alpha products since the late 'Seventies
and could not agree with you more. If I had the
resources I would do just the same as they.

In talking with several of these folks I learned that
to manufacture, or re-issue a product such as
let's say the 77-Series in this day and age would
be terribly cost-prohibitive. Few could afford to
purchase things that were, at one time, within
the realm of the amateur investor.

However, the Alpha name has been inherited by
a group of Amateur Operators who are still
trying their best. In the several circumstances where I 
needed Alpha parts recently, their service was
friendly and fast. I just wish the "magic wand" could
descend on their operation and some magical new
products emerge that were as beautiful and
functional as their former product line.
