I built the MRS and won the LA County Science fair and placed in the
California State Science fair with it in 1968. I was 13.

I also build one of the seismograph designs just for fun.

I did not build the quartz reference clock design in the book but used the
idea to motivate me to add a quartz reference to the 60Hz inverter I built
from the ARRL handbook, using a bunch of DTL flip-flop dividers, to drive a
mechanical clock with a synchronous motor. This was in 1969. So I guess
that delimits the beginning of my time-nuttery.
