Electroluminescent Receiver

I have had my eye on the "The Electroluminescent Receiver Kit"
for quite some time. The kit was mentioned on the Mail Bag
section of SolderSmoke #48, the most recent edition.

The kit is interesting because it results in a high performance
receiver that uses large printed circuit boards for those tired eyes.
"The interconnections are infrared and there are 21 functional
LEDs that add to the circuit, not just tell you when it's on."
I recently came across KC5WA's site, where he is documenting
his build of the Electroluminescent Receiver. He also documents
a variant he calls the Super Luminescent Receiver.
