There are bushes that are pretty much useless green blobs all year, but which now have nice blooms on them

Boeing B-52G Load Adjuster

I bought a load adjuster "case" today, which happened to have a B-52G Adjuster in it.  It was not listed by the aircraft type, but by the case part number. 

It is so new it still has a "leather" smell, and the slide rule is perfect.

A604F Flip Chip Module DEC 2 Bit D-A Converter

The A604 revision F is a 2 bit D-A converter

Difference from Revision E on Vince Slyngstad's site is a date of 2/68, and a bit of trace going off the edge of the board from what is probably one of the grounds.

Will verify the components and etch and update.

Vince's A logic page is here.
