About RF Cafe

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...

Hallicrafters - Good Old Fashioned Christmas
January 1942 QST Article

January 1942 QST

January 1942 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.

As was customary for U.S. businesses, Hallicrafters ran a Christmas advertisement in the January issue of magazines where they appeared. The January edition, as is common even now, is typically mailed in early December, getting it in the hands of readers in time for Christmas. This "Here's to a Good Old Fashioned Christmas" (which many state governors want to end beginning this year) message appeared in the January 1942 issue of QST magazine. Halli(gan) and (hand)crafters was founded in Chicago in 1932 by William J. Halligan. The company designed and manufactured radio equipment for hobby, commercial, and military applications and quickly became very popular amongst their users.

We wish we could give you the DX we used to enjoy not so long ago when, on clear starlit nights, stations thousands of miles away could be copied across the room.

We hope it won't be long 'til we will be back together again - one happy family able to send heartfelt Christmas greetings by radio around the world.
