Here are two excellent historical articles on HF-80 that were recently published in the CCA Signal Magazine (Q4, 2013), as part the 80th year celebration of Rockwell Collins. I have served on the board of this fine organization and appreciate being able to include these here.
Click on the Excerpt Version of this Q4 Signal Magazine below to read either article. More information about the CCA can be found at the link at the bottom of the page. This excerpt reprinted with the permission of the CCA.
