RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB.

January 1941 QST
The Christmas holiday season is here officially now that Thanksgiving is over. When deciding which articles from vintage electronic magazines to post, I always try to pick a few that pertain to specific holidays, like Christmas, Independence Day, Halloween, etc. Many companies ran advertisements - often full-page - in QST, Radio News, Electronics World, etc. Here is one by the Kenton Transformer Company, of New York, New York. Interestingly, it alludes to the military buildup that America was conducting in anticipation to an event that would formally engage us in World War II - that Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th of this issue's year.
Now, I'm not trying to start anything here, but the name Kenyon is probably pronounced the same as for a person who comes from the country of Kenya (i.e., Kenyan). I also noted the company's address is 840 Barry Street. Have you heard of Barry Soetoro? I'm just say'n.
Kenyon Transformer Holiday Message
It is only fitting that at this season we give pause for a moment to contemplate the many Blessings which are ours and to rejoice with you that of all the places of the Earth, we are fortunate enough to live in a Land of Peace and Promise.
In looking ahead to the New Year, let us more firmly determine to solidify the Partnership ties which bind us together in the common cause to make that Peace secure and long lasting.
If, at times in the past year, you have had to endure delays and tardy delivery schedules, it was because a more pressing and more universal National Duty was ours to fulfill.
The entire Kenyon Organization from President to Watchman are as one man in support of the great cause which will make this Holiday Season more secure and to insure for you and for us - for all the future -
"Peace on Earth to Men of Good Will"
