And it only lasted about 10 years or so, with the successor WDX hanging in there for another 2-3 years.  It didn't survive the mid '70s IIRC. 

Mine was WPE9JZT, received the same week as I received my Novice license (WN9EAZ) in May 1970.  I never bothered to "upgrade" it to WDX since wasn't official anyway.

After Popular Electronics stopped the program, it continued with WDX. I was WDX8KVS.

WPE6BXD circa late 1950's back in Bakersfield.  Used and old, old Delco console SW/AM radio.  Too big for my bedroom, so I took the chassis out of the cabinet.  Hung the speaker up on a wall corner next to it.  BTW, Delco stood for Dayton Engineering Laboratories Company...  Kept my bedroom warm on Winter mornings.

Yes!

I was given the "call" WPE7DK about 1959 at age 11 while living in Hermiston, Oregon. Got my Novice the next year (KN7NID) followed by the General a year later with new call K7QQH - have had it ever since, and am VERY active on the HF bands running everything from a QRP K1 (mobile install) to a kw. I work ONLY CW...

I've got to check those old Popular Electronics archives.  I believe that the WPE call signs were listed in the magazine, along with the names of the certificate holders!  Smiley
