Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Craft, published 1929 - 1953. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

I usually try to post something a little less serious and technical on Fridays to help everyone wind down from the long week just passed. It could be a Carl & Jerry or a Mac's Radio Service Shop story, an electronics quiz, or even something I found out on the Internet. This time it is a "believe-it-or-not" type feature entitled "Curiosa in Radio," about radio manufacturing, operating, and infrastructure. One factoid claims "Only 1.1% of set manufacturers in business in 1924 are building sets today." It could due to being in the middle of the Depression Era so almost nobody was making / buying radios, but more likely it reflects the reality of the many people who jumped into the fledgling radio industry early on and then could not gain market share. Enjoy.

The well-known saying that "truth is stranger than fiction" is amply demonstrated by some of the strange facts which have been collected here from all parts of the world. These bits from here and there add zest to radio study.

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...
