RF Cafe - May 1941 QST  CoverTable 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.

Comic strips used to be a popular venue for instruction as well as for humor. Early editions of QST and many other magazines often had many small comics scattered throughout. The one featured here came from the May 1941 QST (before the Pearl Harbor attack).

Amateurs were and still are a vital part of disaster response efforts. In fact it is pretty much inarguable that a big part of why the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has not stripped away a larger portion of the allocated Ham bands is due to the thousands of operators who volunteer their time and equipment to assist government and private agencies with communications during times of duress. Some have argued that the "amateurs" often do a much better job at disseminating time-critical information that the "professionals."

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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
