Mac's Service Shop: Servicing "Too-New" Sets

Mac's Service Shop: Servicing "Too-New" Sets, April 1957 Radio & TV News - RF CafeListen to the RF Cafe Podcast. At the time this Mac's Service Shop episode appeared in a 1957 issue of Radio & TV News magazine, electronics technicians were beginning to see a lot of transistorized radios, televisions, record players, and tape recorders showing up in place of the very familiar vacuum tube models. It was a whole new ballgame. To complicate matters, biasing, interstage coupling, and tuning circuits were in many ways different requiring re-learning what a "typical" circuit looked like, and the introduction of printed circuit boards in place of point-to-point wiring made changing components more difficult. Delaminating metal traces was easy to do on early PCBs when using the big, high thermal inertia soldering irons required for larger and more heat-tolerant components. Author John T. Frye used these Mac's Service Shop stories...

Flexible and Transparent Electronics Fabricated Using 2-D Semiconductor

Flexible and Transparent Electronics Fabricated Using 2-D Semiconductor - RF Cafe"In recent years, engineers worldwide have been trying to create electronic components that are increasingly flexible and versatile, as this could enable the fabrication of more sophisticated devices and robotic systems, such as electronic skins (e-skins) or wearable sensors. The overall objective of this particular area of research is to develop flexible electronics that can be manufactured and implemented on a large scale, but that also exhibit a high device density and excellent performance. A class of materials with particular promise for developing flexible electronic parts are two-dimensional (2-D) semiconductors, such as molybdenum disulfide (MoS2). While this material has many advantageous mechanical, optical and electronic properties, it has so far proved challenging to build large-scale, flexible integrated circuits with a high device..."

Radar Scores SAC Bombing Test

Radar Scores SAC Bombing Test, December 1956 Popular Electronics - RF CafeMost people have heard of the incredibly accurate Norden bombsight (see video of the Norden bombsight) that was credited for revolutionizing accuracy of heavy bombers like B-17s, B-24s, and B-29s. It was an electromechanical device that took bombardier inputs of altitude, airspeed, heading, and wind speed and direction, then calculated the impact point of the bomb. An accuracy of 75 feet was claimed under ideal conditions - provided by a mechanical computing device. By 1956 when this article was published (eleven years after WWII and three years after Korea), the Norden had been replaced by radar-integrated bombing systems. Additionally, ground-based radar measurement systems were in use to train aircrews without the need to drop physical bombs. Instead, virtual bombs were launched and computers in a Radar Bomb Scoring (RBS) unit...

New Radio-Electronic Patents

New Radio-Electronic Patents, November 1947 Radio-Craft - RF CafeIt has been three or four decades since I have seen anything about a Lecher Line, the last time in memory being in a college lab. It might have been a physics lab, but most probably an EE lab. We used one to measure wavelengths of signals from an RF generator. The apparatus looked sort of like the one in the Wikipedia link, only just a little more modern (but not much more, being typical school equipment). This new patents report from a 1947 issue of Radio-Craft magazine has a waveguide version of a Lecher Line that supposedly was able to do more precise measurements of very short wavelengths by providing for detecting the internal wave over multiple wavelengths instead of just a single half wavelength. It was developed at Bell Telephone Laboratories...

Schematic Symbol Stamps

Schematic Symbol Stamps, October 1953 Radio-Electronics - RF CafeEven in this time of readily available computers (including your smartphone) and printers, having a set of rubber stamps for common electronics symbols would be pretty handy; there are some Neanderthals among us who still use pencil and paper on occasion. Simpler symbols like resistors and capacitors are easy enough to sketch by hand, but something like a dual gate MOSFET with diode protection can take some time to produce legibly. Common connector types like the DB signal/power series and some RF kinds (BNC, SMA, etc.) would be useful, as would a set of oft-used logic gates for the digital designers. The set shown here in a 1953 edition of Radio-Electronics magazine includes a handful of vacuum tube types which would have taken some time to draw by hand, and a few other symbols...

Lens Antennas Aim to Provide Better Connectivity at Public Venues

Lens Antennas Aim to Provide Better Connectivity at Public Venues - RF Cafe"The demand for bandwidth has been increasing continuously in the cellular world and there are no indications of it slowing down. This is true in large public venues as well, such as arenas and stadiums, where the fans require large bandwidths to communicate and send pictures / videos. Using Lens Antennas in these scenarios not only increases cellular coverage and capacity in venues, but it can do that at a lower cost than traditional methods with the added advantage of improved aesthetics. The problem for venue owners and operators is to satisfy the ever-increasing requirement for connectivity. There is an increased need for lower latency as well with the introduction of live mobile gaming inside venues. Lens Antennas can be deployed in such venues which have multi-radio..."

Atomic Clock to Check Einstein

Atomic Clock to Check Einstein, October 1959 Popular Electronics - RF CafeAlbert Einstein published his paper on Special Relativity in 1905 and on General Relativity in 1916. Since that time, many experiments have been performed worldwide by scientists intent on both proving and disproving Mr. Einstein. Laser and nuclear based timepieces have been improved for precision and calculations refined to aid in the task. This 1959 Popular Electronics magazine article reports on one of the first atomic clock experiments used to test General Relativity. After more than 100 years, General Relativity stands as originally presented. Even the rigors of quantum mechanics, which Einstein did not embrace until much later in life, has not toppled its precepts...

A Modern View of Permanent Magnet Theory

Magnetism - Part I - A Modern View of Permanent Magnet Theory, October 1947 Radio-Craft - RF CafeThis first installment in a multi-part series on magnetism appeared in the October 1947 issue of Radio-Craft magazine. At the time, there was great interest in magnetic tape and even magnetic wire recorders. Lots of articles were published on the electronics and mechanics of recorders, but relatively few discussed the physics of magnetics. Although the title says it is about permanent magnetic theory, there is also a lot of information on electromagnets. Terms such as reluctivity, magnetomotive force, magnetic flux, conductivity of electrical and magnetic circuits, conductance, B-H curves, maxwells, oersteds, and gilberts are introduced, along with some simple equations relating everything...

This Business of Code

This Business of Code, February 1941 QST - RF CafeProficiency in Morse code is no longer required as part of obtaining an Amateur Radio license. A proposal to drop the 5 wpm requirement was first floated by the FCC in 2005. It was actually at the request of the ARRL; to wit, "In 2004, the League called on the FCC to create a new entry-level license, reduce the number of actual license classes to three and drop the Morse code testing requirement for all classes except for Amateur Extra." ARLB018 FCC Proposes Dropping Morse Code Requirement Entirely Now, there is no code requirement for any license class, not even the Amateur Extra. A lot of Hams are not happy about it, but times have changed and the need for code proficiency just is not needed anymore because of the plethora of communications formats available. No small part of the ARRL's motivation for requesting that code proficiency be dropped...

Veterans Day Tribute 2020

Veterans Day Tribute 2020 - RF CafeThe eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month - November 11th, at 11:00 am - that is when the armistice (cease fire) began in 1918, unofficially ending World War I. This music video Veteran's Day tribute is by Canadian citizen Terry Kelly. It was written after an experience he had on Veterans Day in 1999. Terry went blind at an early age, but has excelled as an athlete and a musician. "A Pittance of Time" is done in the finest Celtic tradition. Per the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs website: "World War I – known at the time as 'The Great War' - officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of 'the war to end all wars...'"

Wire Wrap: Bell Telephone Laboratories

Wire Wrap: Bell Telephone Laboratories, October 1953 Radio-Electronics - RF CafeAfter getting out of the U.S. Air Force in 1982, I was fortunate to get a job at the Oceanic Division of Westinghouse Electric Corporation in Annapolis, Maryland. Most of the guys who worked in the area with me were former electronics technicians from the armed forces. We spent most of our days (and often evenings) building small quantity specialty systems for the U.S. Navy. The facility was fairly small and was not set up for high volume production; that was the purview of the much larger operation based adjacent to the Baltimore / Washington International Airport (BWI), which built ground-based and airborne radar systems. Whilst there, I did a lot of wire-wrap assemblies that went into MIL-SPEC systems, primarily rack-mounted equipment in helicopters and aboard ships deploying towed sonar systems. As such, I received extensive training for performing soldering, wire-wrapping...

Getting to Know the UJT

Getting to Know the UJT, April 1970 Popular Electronics - RFCafeThe unijunction transistor (UJT), invented in 1953, was originally known as a "double-base diode" and explains why to this day the terminals are labeled "E," "B1,' and B2." It is commonly modeled as a diode connected between two resistors, with one resistor being variable. As the name implies, unlike a bipolar junction transistor (BJT) that is more familiar to most people and has two semiconductor junctions connected to the base, a UJT has just one junction. As is explained in detail in this 1970 Popular Electronics article, the net effect of the UJT's arrangement is a region of negative resistance which makes it good for use as an oscillator. In fact, the relaxation oscillator...

Microtubes - A New Milestone in Electronic Developments

Microtubes, November 1947 Radio-Craft - RF CafeA month before Bell Laboratories' announcement of the transistor invention by Mssrs. Bardeen, Shockley and Brattain, Radio-Craft magazine editor Hugo Gernsback published a piece extolling the virtues of a newly developed microtube, aka a "rice-grain" tube. As connected as Gernsback was in the electronics industry, it is doubtful he knew of the impending game-changing invention. Commercialization of the transistor took a few years to get to the point where the devices could be manufactured cheaply and reliably enough to begin being integrated (pun intended) into products, so vacuum tubes still reigned for another decade or more. While the microtubes were designed into such products as portable radios, hearing aids, and other things in desperate need of size reduction, standard tubes continued to be used in the majority of things...

Blowtorching Tubes to Life

Blowtorching Tubes to Life, January 1933 Radio-Craft - RF CafeIf this article had appeared in the New York Times in the year 2020, its author, Glenn Ellsworth, would have been labeled a 'Depression Denier!' Don't be confused by the word 'denier,' which most often prior to about 1999 was used to refer to a type of silver coin or a measure of fineness of silk cloth. Today, it is seen most often as describing one who would deny something. 'Denyer' is the alternate spelling used by some authors to avoid confusion, and since the level of spelling knowledge is so low, most people never notice. But, I digress. The reason I bring up the point is because this article was published in 1933, little more than three years after the Stock Market Crash of October 29, 1929 (aka 'Black Tuesday')...

3D EM Field Solver Focuses on Antenna Design and Optimize Planar Filter

3D EM Field Solver Focuses on Antenna Design and Optimize Planar FilterJeffrey Kahler and Andreas Wien have an article in Microwaves & RF magazine that shows how two disparate software programs can be used together to design and optimize a system segment consisting of the antenna and an associated planar filter. "For many years, IMST has been in the business of producing expert 3D electromagnetic (EM) simulation software. With its Empire XPU product, IMST emphasizes and focuses on antenna design and optimization. Nuhertz Technologies has also been around for many years, producing expert filter design software. And with its FilterSolutions tool, the company focuses on accurate 3D planar design and optimization. Therefore, it seems a natural fit for these two products to work together so that users can take advantage of the best features of both. Specifically, IMST's Empire XPU EM optimization process can be used on planar designs created with Nuhertz's FilterSolutions..."
