Magnetic Current - Discovery of the Age?

Magnetic Current - Discovery of the Age?, March 1944 Radio-Craft - RF CafeIt was a big deal in 1944 when Austrian physicist Dr. Felix Ehrenhaft announced that he had discovered "magnetic charges," aka magnetic monopoles. He claimed based on numerous kinds of experiments that a reversible "magnetic current" existed around current-carrying conductors. It seems based on my reading of this Radio-Craft article that he believed there existed mono-magnetic particles of some sort analogous to electrons and protons. Later experiments seems to indicate that high intensity light beams could also produce evidence of magnetic currents. Dr. Ehrenhaft widely promoted his conclusions and invited doubters to examine his apparatus. Based on some Web searches on the topic, independent researchers were not able to reproduce his findings, so his work eventually faded into the background. Some credit his experiments with light for demonstrating the particle nature of light's ability to accelerate masses. The most profound implication of proving the existence of magnetic monopoles...

Combining Light & Sound to See Underwater

Combining Ligt & Sound to See Underwater - RF Cafe"Stanford University engineers have developed an airborne method for imaging underwater objects by combining light and sound to break through the seemingly impassable barrier at the interface of air and water. The researchers envision their hybrid optical-acoustic system one day being used to conduct drone-based biological marine surveys from the air, carry out large-scale aerial searches of sunken ships and planes, and map the ocean depths with a similar speed and level of detail as Earth's landscapes. Their 'Photoacoustic Airborne Sonar System' is detailed in a recent study published in the journal IEEE Access..."

The Field That Stays at Home

The Field That Stays at Home, April 1942 QST - RF CafeHere is a really good introductory article on electromagnetic (EM) fields as they pertain to inductors, transformers, and antennas. It appeared in the April 1942 edition of QST magazine. The FCC had only been in existence for eight years at the time and was pretty much just figuring out how to regulate the heck out of everything. The author discusses compliance issues for these newfangled RF devices that were becoming more and more numerous. Interestingly, the first sentence says, "Every time you threw the transmitting switch in pre-war days...," bringing to mind how the Feds banned Amateur Radio during most of World War II for security reasons as well as to assure that scarce resources went toward building and servicing military gear as needed. Many Hams offered their gear either as a donation...

Millions of Britons Do Not Know About These British Inventions

Millions of Britons Do Not Know About These British Inventions - RF CafeMillions of Britons do not know the internet, the colour television and jet engine are British inventions, a survey has claimed. Around half of 2,000 adults polled were not aware that London based Sir Tim Berners-Lee created the World Wide Web in 1989. 55% did not realise John Logie Baird, of Dunbartonshire, was the first person to demonstrate a working colour television in 1928. And 51 per cent did not know Frank Whittle from Coventry made the very first jet engine having patented the invention in 1928. 'For the last 50 years the award has celebrated ground-breaking engineering innovations that have established the UK as a global leader,' said Dr Dame Sue Ion DBE, chair of the Royal Academy of Engineering..."

Allied Radio: Hallicrafters Receivers

Allied Radio: Hallicrafters Receivers, April 1941 Radio News - RF CafeLittle did Ham radio operators know in April of 1941 when they were enthusiastically buying equipment for their shacks that a year later the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) would ban them from broadcasting from their transmitters. This advertisement for a high-end Hallicrafters receiver appeared in the April issue of Radio News magazine. Part of the feature definition includes "calibrated bandspread inertia controlled," and "micrometer scale tuning inertia controlled." I'm not sure what the "inertia controlled" part is, unless it refers to how massive metal disks were sometimes installed inside the chassis on the tuning shaft in order to give a more solid feel to the control knob, as well as to enable the dial to be spun and released to rapidly move through a large distance between adjustment points...

VNA Master Class: Effective Use of VNA "Channels" for Efficient Measurement and Analysis

In this short webinar Brian demonstrates how one might effectively use two or more channels to make useful measurements. The full agenda includes allocating traces vs. allocating channels, setting up multiple channels, calibration...

50-Million-Electron Jolt Sensors Power Themselves

50-Million-Electron Jolt Sensors Power Themselves - RF Cafe"With just a 50-million-electron jumpstart, sensors can power themselves for more than a year. Researchers from Washington University in St. Louis, led by Prof. Shantanu Chakrabartty, created self-powered sensors by taking advantage of a quantum effect known as 'tunneling.' For a device that relies on complex physics, the sensor is somewhat simple. The components required are four capacitors and two transistors. From these six parts, Chakrabartty's team built two dynamical systems, each with two capacitors and a transistor. The capacitors hold a small initial charge, about 50 million electrons each. The 50 million electrons are programmed in during the device initialization phase..."

Paul Harvey Honors Ham Radio Operators

Paul Harvey Honors Ham Radio Operators - RF Cafe Smorgasbord"Hello Americans, This is Paul Harvey..." Radio legend Paul Harvey produced and performed a daily show that featured news, commercials, and commentary. For nearly 75 years, dedicated listeners looked forward to his show on the local AM radio stations - especially The Rest of the Story. Scores of wars, natural disasters, crises, deaths, scientific advances, miracles, and acts of human kindness were commented upon in Mr. Harvey's unique delivery style. On March 19, 2003, Mr. Harvey did a pitch for the role of Amateur Radio operators in emergency response roles. The mention was the second item on "page four" of his Paul Harvey Noon News and Comment program. "America's quiet warriors are the legion of ham radio operators, 700,000 of them, who are always at ready for backup duty in emergencies - amateur, unpaid, uncelebrated, civilian radio operators...

Mac's Service Shop: Soldering

Mac's Service Shop: Soldering, October 1956 Radio & Television News - RF CafeListen to the RF Cafe Podcast. It is a rare thing when I take exception (i.e., disagree) with anything Mac McGregor has to say, but on the subject of soldering I must object. In this 1956 installment of Mac's Service Shop, Mac and Barney are discussing the plusses and minuses of making a solder joint mechanically sound prior to applying solder. Barney mentions an article he read where the author asserts that the only way to make a quality solder joint is to wrap component leads and wire ends around posts, lugs, eyes, etc. and then flowing the solder. Both Mac and Barney argue that a perfectly sound solder joint can be made simply by laying the lead or wire in place and applying solder. From a servicing perspective that sounds good, because - as I can attest to from much experience...

High-Flying 5G Could Slash Network Costs

High-Flying 5G Could Slash Network Costs - RF Cafe"A British company has come up with the novel idea of using a drone in the sky to provide 5G Internet to consumers and businesses, utilising an "unique lightweight, long-endurance airframe certified for civilian use" and powered by liquid hydrogen, to provide the globe's biggest airborne communications platform. Stratospheric Platforms chief executive Richard Deakin told iTWire in response to queries that the High Altitude Platform would be able to stay aloft for nine days. 'Only one HAP is required to provide the service, but some customers may want to ensure that they have a very high level of service assurance, so much of the modelling we have done assumes a spare HAP for each one on station, or a spare HAP for say three HAPS on station etc..."

Aviation World Mourns Passing of Chuck Yeager

Aviation World Mourns Passing of Chuck Yeager - Airplanes and Rockets"The first man to break the sound barrier, Chuck Yeager, and who undoubtedly had 'the right stuff,' died on December 7, 2020 at the ripe old age of 97. You can't take West Virginia out of the boy. Charles Yeager was born on February 13, 1923, in Myra, West Virginia, deep in the heart of Appalachian hill country. As a child, Yeager shot squirrels and rabbits and skinned them for the family's dinners. In September 1941, armed with his high school diploma, Yeager enlisted in the Army Air Forces, which was the precursor to today's U.S. Air Force. Yeager became an airplane mechanic. After tagging along with a maintenance officer who was flight-testing an airplane, Yeager decided to sign up for a flight training program..."

Radio Amateur Course - Resistance, Inductance, and Capacity

Radio Amateur Course, November 1935 Short Wave Craft - RF CafeAs mentioned many times in the past, some things never change regarding the basics of electricity and electronics. Resistance, inductance, and capacitance (termed "capacity" here) are examples and are addressed in this last of a three-part series which appeared in 1935 issues of Short Wave Craft magazine. When first starting out in this science, an effective introduction to the fundamentals can often determine whether a person sticks with it or finds another area of interest to pursue as a hobby and/or vocation. Analogous examples of voltage and water pressure, resistance and the diameter of a water hose, inertia in a spinning mass opposing a change in rate and an inductor opposing a change in current, etc., are presented along with some good sketches of the principles...

Air Force Technology Tracks Sporadic E

Air Force Technology Tracks Sporadic E - RF Cafe"Researchers at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in New Mexico have discovered a new way to track and characterize a phenomenon called 'Sporadic E' that naturally occurs in the upper atmosphere where large structures of dense plasma form. These plasma structures, which occur at midlatitude locations around the world, disrupt radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic waves (or simply 'radio waves') and impact both DoD and civilian radio systems in positive and negative ways, depending on the application. 'Previous methods to observe these structures were insufficient for identifying and tracking these structures over large regions,' said Ken Obenberger, research physicist at AFRL. 'It would be advantageous to actively identify where these structures are, where they are going, and how dense they are and we thought we could find a better way..."

Lower Current Leads to Highly Efficient Memory

Lower Current Leads to Highly Efficient Memory - RF Cafe"Researchers are a step closer to realizing a new kind of memory that works according to the principles of spintronics which is analogous to, but different from, electronics. Their unique GaAs-based ferromagnetic semiconductor can act as memory by quickly switching its magnetic state in the presence of an induced current at low power. Previously, such current-induced magnetization switching was unstable and drew a lot of power, but this new material both suppresses the instability and lowers the power consumption too. The field of quantum computing often gets covered in the technical press; however, another emerging field along similar lines tends to get overlooked, and that is spintronics..."

Broadcasting - As I Imagined It...

Broadcasting - As I Imagined It..., February 1939 Radio-Craft - RF CafeDr. Lee DeForest might have had something like National Public Radio (est. 1970) in mind when he penned this article in 1933. In it, the famous vacuum tube amplifier inventor lamented and criticized the commercialization of broadcasts because of all the paid product announcements (aka commercials) that had been steadily increasing over the years. He also was critical of the "hit-or-miss, higgeldy-piggeldy mélange program basis" of programing; i.e., the same station playing a mix of jazz, opera, swing, syndicated story-telling, etc. The good doctor did not elaborate on where funding for such dedicated, uncorrupted broadcasts would originate if not from paying advertisers, and I do not recall ever reading about a DeForest Radio Network paid for by his vast fortune. I don't like commercials any more than the next person, but a company deserves time to pitch its products and/or services if it helps deliver...

Electronics-Themed Comics, October 1947 Radio-Craft

Electronics-Themed Comics, October 1947 Radio-Craft - RF CafeHere are three more electronics-related comics to help brighten your day. They appeared in a 1947 issue of Radio-Craft magazine. The first one reflects what was a problem with early compact vacuum tube radios with molded plastic chassis. The gag is the lady's blaming the problem on something else unrelated. The term "table-top" probably originated in the early twentieth century to describe products which, prior to miniaturization efforts using newfangled materials and manufacturing methods, existed only in the form of large model that stood separately on the floor. The last comic could actually be applied to today's world...

Hollow Core Fibres Cut Communications Losses

Hollow Core Fibres Cut Communications Losses - RF Cafe"Optical fibres made of silica glass have been the transmission medium for a high-speed optical communications market estimated to be worth $40B globally. All-silicon optical transmitter operates at 100 Gbps The performance of optical fibres is negatively impacted by attenuation - the scattering of light inside the glass - that causes a loss in transmitted power. According to the University, this power loss limits the performance of applications requiring shorter wavelengths. In this new study, published in Nature Communications, researchers from Southampton University have demonstrated that guiding light through air-filled fibres offers a potential way to overcome..."

Transistor Announcement in Boys' Life

Tiny But Tremendous Transistors, October 1952 Boys' Life Magazine - RF CafeThe October 1952 issue of Boys' Life magazine story entitled "Tiny But Tremendous Transistors," contained the first mention of transistors I can find in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) flagship publication. Germanium was still the primary element used for semiconductors at the time, although silicon would soon replace it - and at a much lower cost. Whereas silicon is found on beaches all over the world (and everywhere else for that matter) in the form of sand, germanium at the time was obtained as a by-product of smelting zinc ore (which I didn't know until reading this story). Today, of course, both elements are abundantly available. Mr. Cavanaugh points out that although wonderful things are being done with transistors in the way of improving performance, lowering power requirements, and reducing product sizes and weights...

    Kirt Blattenberger,


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...
