For years I was seeking the font used by Channel 9's Wide World of Sports (Australia) from c.1980 up until 1992.  I've expanded it to a full alphabet but not happy with characters with diagonals.  And the W should be proper diagonals, but I can't get that right within FontStruct's constraints.  Anyway, cricket fans, here you go... super effort, that.  Use @9 to make your own Channel 9 logo.

@Omegaville - Looking at an SVG of the logo, it appears that the angles on the W are approximately 22.6°–67.4°–90°.

On the left side of the attached picture, you can make a close approximation by making a composite of the two left bricks (which makes a 30°–60°–90° triangle) plus 3 squares, then erasing the three right squares from the My Bricks composite brick.  This results in angles that are 21.8°–68.2°–90°.

You can make wider versions by moving the square bricks around and deleting them from the resulting My Bricks composite as needed. (Right side of attached picture)

The MORE difficult part will be to get the rounded tops and bottoms of the angled terminals and vertices to look as nice as they do with the verical legs and horizontal arms.
