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

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the 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
