Kirt's Cogitations™ #324

RF Cafe University"Factoids," "Kirt's Cogitations," and "Tech Topics Smorgasbord" are all manifestations of my rantings on various subjects relevant (usually) to the overall RF Cafe theme. All may be accessed on these pages:

As our traditions are besieged by malcontents determined to denigrate, impugn, and ultimately erase memories of holidays and events that have meant so much to families and friends, I feel compelled to resist the movement by documenting parts of the past that will allow us to wax nostalgic over our cherished traditions. Intimidation and violence is part of the strategic calculus; we have seen it in spades in 2020, and 2021 promises to be even worse. The Cancel Culture might eventually win out with the complicity of government agents both elected and unelected, but I'm not going down without a fight. Here is a collection of twentieth century, December issue QST magazine covers with Christmas themes that will no doubt be familiar to many of you. Finding them was more difficult than I thought it would be, and I was surprised to learn many years did not include a Christmas theme on the cover. As usual when looking for vintage items, eBay turned out to be the best source of images.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
