    This is from a local CB newspaper in 1976. "The Computor"
    was well known in the area with his special powers, etc. He kept a card file on all the locals with info about what kind of car they drove, how much gas they bought at the last fillup, what their wife bought at the store, etc.

    He could do an artificial computer sounding voice. Remember this was 1976. He had most of the locals fooled!
    It eventually came out who he was. Some people still didn't believe it!

    He graduated our ham classes at the time and became WB4GIL, now still active as N4GIL.

    Wish I had a better copy to scan but this is all that's left.

    Yeah, but could he whistle at 2600 Hz, as well as KP and ST tones?

    A clinical psychologist in radio?

    Imagine the opportunity for dissertation topics.
