David White, WN5Y, is a home-brewer from the beginning of his ham radio story, and loves to build receivers for ham radio.  Originally inspired by the designs of the late Lew McCoy, W1ICP, and later Wes Hayward, W7ZOI,  David’s latest receivers are called electroluminescent because he incorporates LEDs as components in the receiver design itself, and not just as front panel indicators.  David shares his story in this QSO Today.
