Jeeze. These AD comparators are used by me in line receivers where
they are usefully terminated at 100 ohms! And here they are putting
100K in front!

If you have an improvement (or even better a whole family of
improvements) the best way to get them published in QEX is to send
them schematics, and the way to make the schematics most useful is
to send a concise little chart of noise numbers for the various
circuits. The editors have a well-fed disgust of tit-for-tat
letters/editorial comments and may not be able to distinguish
between tit-for-tat criticism and real criticism, but they
often publish improved circuits.
