Here are some pics that were sent to me by a Seattle ham Gary, K7HTK.  He has constructed my breadboard mobile with a TR-3 and some upgrades such as finishing the breadboard and installing a mobile mic holder.  I thought you would enjoy his effort and his interest in the article.  I have also heard from two DX hams, one in England and the other in New Zealand.  Of all of the people I received email, Gary is the only one that as constructed the mobile station.  I did talk to another ham a few weeks ago that purchased an old TR-4 to construct the classic mobile!

Thanks, John WA9ZBW
