Kenyon Transformer Holiday Message
January 1941 QST

January 1941 QST

January 1941 QST  Cover - RF CafeTable of Contents

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from QST, published December 1915 - present (visit ARRL for info). All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

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 (aka 4th of July), Halloween, etc. Many companies ran magazine advertisements - often full-page - in QST, Radio News, Electronics World, etc. Here is one by the Kenyon Transformer Company, of New York, New York. It alludes to the military buildup that America was conducting in anticipation of being drawn into the battles which had been going on for two years already in Europe, North Africa, and the South Pacific. That it appeared in the very issue of QST that was being delivered just about the time Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7th of that very year is the epitome of irony (or prognostication).

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

 - RF CafeKnow All Men by these Presents!

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"

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...
