Cause for Alarm: Slump in Jobs in Electronics

Cause for Alarm: Slump in Jobs in Electronics, May 18, 1964 Electronics Magazine - RF CafeNationwide survey shows a decline in opportunities for engineers. Although jobs are fewer and requirements tougher, certain specialists are still in demand. An employment-agency official on Long Island says, "If it weren't for Grumman (Aircraft Corp.), you could just cut Long Island off and let it float into the Atlantic." A Chicago agency that specializes in jobs for engineers advises applicants to relocate and be prepared to drop out of the five-figure salary range. These are typical findings in a coast-to-coast employment survey. Don't panic; these statements are from a 1964 issue of Electronics magazine. Prior to our current Era of Wireless, which, unbeknownst to most people, is a nomenclature that harkens back to a century earlier ...

De Forest Radio Company Advertisement, 1931 QST

De Forest Radio Company Advertisement, December 1931 QST - RF CafeLee de Forest, inventor of the Audion vacuum tube, created a business called De Forest Radio Company (although I hear he didn't build that). This advertisement for his company's electron tubes appeared in the December 1931 edition of the ARRL's QST magazine. If you research Lee de Forest, you will find his name spelled incorrectly in many different forms: de Forest, De Forest, de Forest, de Forest, to give a few. When in doubt, go straight to the source, which in this case is the signature that de Forest placed on his patent applications - he used "de Forest." Note that the official company name, according to the advertisement address at the bottom, is "De Forest Radio Company," (space used) yet the text of the copy uses the form ...

Is Ham Radio a Hobby, a Utility...or Both? Spectrum Battle Heats Up

Is Ham Radio a Hobby, a Utility...or Both? Spectrum Battle Heats Up - RF Cafe"Like many amateur radio fans his age, Ron Kolarik, 71, still recalls the 'pure magic' of his first ham experience nearly 60 years ago. Lately, though, encrypted messages have begun to infiltrate the amateur bands in ways that he says are antithetical to the spirit of this beloved hobby. So Kolarik filed a petition, RM-11831 [PDF], to the U.S. FCC proposing a rule change to 'Reduce Interference and Add Transparency to Digital Data Communications.' And as the proposal makes its way through the FCC's process, it has stirred up heated debate that goes straight to the heart of what ham radio is, and ought to be. The core questions: Should amateur radio - and its precious spectrum - be protected purely as a hobby, or is it a utility that delivers data traffic ..."

Diode Switch Circuit Quiz

Diode Circuit Quiz, July 1961 Popular Electronics - RF CafeTest your diode switch analysis skills here with six circuits designed by Mr. Robert P. Balin in the July 1961 issue of Popular Electronics. When evaluating the equivalent circuits with the diodes biased on or off, don't make the job more difficult for yourself by considering whether there is enough voltage or current to turn a particular diode on or not, just whether the diode is forward or reverse biased. Doing so reduces everything to simple series and parallel combinations. Redrawing each circuit either with a short for a forward biased diode and an open for a reverse biased diode makes the task easier ...

Commercial Aspects of Single-Sideband

Commercial Aspects of Single-Sideband, May 1956 Radio & Television News - RF CafeAfter discussing the technical benefits of single-sideband (SSB) amplitude modulated (AM) commercial transmission versus double-sideband + carrier standard AM, author Jack Brown concludes with a chart plotting the relative cost of each method versus output power. The result: Transmitters with less than 100 watts output the initial equipment cost of a single-sideband transmitter is greater than its standard AM counterpart. My guess is that with today's equipment the chart would look a lot different, and there may be no dollar cost benefit either way from a hardware perspective. The benefit of SSB of course is in spectrum efficiency and, especially for very high powers, operational cost savings on electricity bills. Even so, commercial AM broadcast radio stations in the U.S. still transmit using ...

Why Your Son Should Learn Radio - A Talk with "Dad"

Why Your Son Should Learn Radio - A Talk with "Dad", April 1935 Short Wave Craft - RF CafeFrom keeping your son off the streets and out of pool rooms to learning the use of his hands and mind for designing, building, and operating radio, John T. Frye, later of "Carl & Jerry" authorship fame in Popular Electronics magazine, offers no less than eight good reasons why a man should encourage his son (and/or daughter) to take up amateur radio as a hobby - preferably one that will last a lifetime. As is true with any activity that requires a person to exercise hand-eye coordination and think logically about the order and method for best accomplishing a task, Ham radio offers the complete gambit of life skills that should be nurtured at an early age. In the same manner a musician benefits mightily from learning to read and play music while the brain is still in the process of wiring ...

On-Demand Control of THz & Infrared Waves - RF Cafe"The ability to control infrared and terahertz waves using magnetic or electric fields is one of the great challenges in physics that could revolutionize optoelectronics, telecommunications and medical diagnostics. A theory from 2006 predicts that it should be possible to use graphene - a monoatomic layer of carbon atoms - in a magnetic field not only to absorb terahertz and infrared light on demand but also to control the direction of circular polarization. Researchers from the University of Geneva, Switzerland, and the University of Manchester have succeeded in testing this theory ..."

The Quest for the Crystal That Amplifies

The Quest for the Crystal That Amplifies, June 1968 Popular Electronics - RF CafeHmmmm... I never really thought about the transistor as a crystal amplifier (a la the 'crystal detector'), but in fact it was fabricated from a crystal of germanium with two 'cat whisker' wires pressing on its surface. Before the transistor was the simple rectifier made of a crystal of selenium or even carborundum with a point contact. Those were used for turning AC into DC and for detecting radio wave modulation envelopes. For a really good synopsis of the early development path of semiconductors, read this story from a 1968 edition of Popular Electronics that commemorated the 20th anniversary of Bardeen, Shockley, and Brattain announcing their transistor. Having been written much closer to the days of discovery, the story has not been filtered ...

An Old Spark Soliloquizes

An Old Spark Soliloquizes, December 1931 QST - RF CafeIf it has been a while since you read a story with terms and phrases like "splinters of galena," "the day of the tuning coil that stretched from the front bedroom to the back library; or from the attic to the cellar," and "Ether God," then this article from the December 1931 edition of QST is for you. Galena, by the way, is a semiconductor with a bandgap of about 0.4 eV that was used as the crystal in crystal radio sets. It was used as a point-contact diode along with a safety pin or similar sharp wire, commonly known as a "cat's whisker." In fact, the very first transistor developed by Drs. Bardeen, Shockley, and Brattain used two cat's whisker type contacts on their crystals of germanium ...

Silent Sound

Silent Sound, June 1955 Popular Electronics - RF CafeThis article from a 1955 issue of Popular Electronics discusses the state of the art of ultrasonic transducers and equipment that uses them. Amazingly, of all the applications that are mentioned, one is glaringly missing. Author Louis Garner, Jr., mentions using ultrasonic transducers for measuring material thickness, detecting flaws on and within materials and assemblies, cleaning by ultrasonic scrubbing, soldering*, and motion detection for security systems. The missing items of course is sonar (sound navigation and ranging). The U.S. Navy was using sonar during World War II, although it had been in development a couple decade earlier - similar to radar's evolution. 15 - 20 kc (kHz) frequencies were typical in the day. Modern ultrasonic cleaners use up to 40 kHz, and high resolution sonars run into the low MHz. Oh, also missing is ultrasound imaging like what is used for prenatal and other internal ...
