April 1957 Radio & TV News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

You will be excused for not knowing that Norelco, famous today (or was it seemingly just yesterday?) for its line of electric shavers, coffee makers, and cassette recorders, once was famous for its radio loudspeakers. Norelco also offered a line of wooden speaker cabinets. This advertisement appeared in the April 1957 issue of Radio and TV News magazine. "Sink me, the copy writer's a poet," to shamelessly paraphrase Sir Percy Blakeney from "The Scarlet Pimpernel."

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...
