Perhaps you are right. Some techs. have expressed interest in learning
how to do this. Perhaps I'll see what they can do.

Well there are no specialists close to me. I should investigate the
other depts. at Sandia, to see if there's some good EEs around that I
can collaborate with more. There are two MSEEs in my dept., but then
they got Ph.Ds. in something else, and hardly think about electronics
anymore. One guy is getting back into it though, but he even comes to
me for some practical advice on modern issues like making PCBs and SMT,
but the man is a towering genius when it comes to analysis and theory.
