Kilobaud and Byte were both started by Wayne Green. IIRC Kilobaud grew out
of another Green publication for Hams called 73. 1976 might be right but
it was started before 79.

I don't recall a mag called Microcomputing that merged with Kilobaud but at
some point it changed it's name to Kilobaud Microcomputing and later 80
