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...

Gain vs. Phase of the Moon Graph from Watkins Johnson - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam. Note: The RF Cafe Forums were reconstituted in April 2021!

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Greetings:

Does anyone remember the graph in one of the 1980s vintage Watkins Johnson catalogs that had a graph for an amplifier (I think) that plotted Gain (I think) versus "Phase of the Moon?"

I have tried on other industry forums, as well as by writing to WJ, to get a copy of this page from the databook, but have never been able. A Google Search does not turn up any results, either.

If anyone happens to have a copy, I would greatly appreciate either an image file or a physical copy of it. I can also give a fax number to send a copy to. It would make a great item for RF Cafe.

Thank you.

Hi Kirt,

I absolutely remember that graph. It seemed to transcend revisions to their catalog - missed by the proofreader types who would normally have found no humor in it, much to our delight.

Can't say I've got a copy of it however. It would indeed be a gem to add here.

Mike
