Of late, I am having to write too many posts signaling the passing of Lectron Luminaries. The photo shows from L to R Max Gürth, Günther Stabe and Michael Peters in Munich back in 2015.

On 2020-AUG-19 Günther passed suddenly after fighting a protracted illness for some time.

I had the honor of meeting Günther online back in 2012 when he communicated to me about a Lectron System available for purchase.  We first met when we visited the Lectron RWO facility together in November of 2013.

Over the next 7 years, Günther was a stalwart research colleague and friend.  He was always engaged in digging up the smallest detail of the Lectron System history.  Together, we visited the remaining original Lectron Luminaries including Dietrich Lubs, Max Gürth and Hartmut Birett.  Guenther visited Edzard Timmer on his own and I visited his son Jan on my own in 2019.

I will miss Günther dearly as a colleague without peer.  Thank you dear friend for your friendship and support.

With much admiration and respect,

  • Hello Frank,

    Thank you for your remembrance of Guenther.

    Your wish is my command regarding Guenther’s catalog. It is now available within Lectron.Info so it will not be lost.

    The catalog may be accessed

  • This indeed sad news.

    Guenther will be missed among many Lectron users.

    I loved reading his contributions to Lectron.info where he demonstrated several radio circuits.
    He liked to use the Lectron system as tool for developing a circuit. Then he made a custom block of this circuit. This was truly groundbreaking and a clever usage of Lectron.

    On his website (that hopefully will continue to exist) is a comprehensive library of all Braun-Lectron modules ever made. He has put so much effort in this to keep it up to date.

    Let me thank you Guenther for all your ideas and Lectron inventions.
