X-Rays from TV Sets - Are They Harmful?

X-Rays from TV Sets - Are They Harmful?, November 1958 Radio News - RF CafeMost of us are likely familiar with the ongoing debate over whether radiation from cellphones, Wi-Fi routers and laptop computers, cell towers, smart meters, and other such modern gadgetry is harmful to humans. It is not ionizing radiation like nuclear decay, but there are heating effects that can cause damage under the right conditions. One week news breaks from the latest organization shocking the public with proof of tissue cell damage to brain, hand, face, eyeball, and groin tissue (from laptops). The next week brings a counter report refuting apocalyptic claims of previous studies... then the cycle repeats. Early in the age of ubiquitous wireless devices, those seeking to mitigate worries of radiation argued - somewhat correctly - that enough time had not yet passed to collect statistically meaningful data. If significant harm could be proven right away, dismissing the empirical results ...

Russian Cows Wear VR Goggles to Increase Milk Production

Russian Cows Wear VR Goggles to Increase Milk Production - RF cafeA cure for bovine cabin fever -- "If you walked onto the RusMoloko dairy farm near Moscow, in Russia, you may think you've arrived onto a bizarre futuristic film set, where cows run around fitted with VR headsets. The VR goggles aren't props for a film, however. They have been specifically made for these dairy cows, so as to improve their conditions and enable them to relax into producing more milk. Many different industries around the world are turning more and more toward computerization to improve working conditions, so why not the farming industry too? These headsets were carefully designed by combining years of experience in the dairy farming industry, as well as technology. The pressing issue of milk production led to experts from the IT world, as well as industry leaders in milk production ..."

How Christmas Came to Sunspot McSquegg

How Christmas Came to Sunspot McSquegg, December 1953 QST - RF Cafe"The perfect squelch" was a popular concept in the 1950s. I know because I've seen it in a few different magazines from that era. In fact, The Saturday Evening Post ran a regular inset feature by that name. As you might guess, it has to do with making a short statement that has the effect of cutting out the 'noise,' whether it be from the background of a radio reception or from an obnoxious person shooting off his mouth (which was the case for the SEP). BTW, the "Squegg" part of Sunspot McSquegg's name comes from the radio term 'squeg,' which refers to oscillations due to excessive feedback, like what happens when a microphone is placed too close to the speaker. This Christmastime tidbit appeared in the December 1953 issue of QST magazine ...

Radio Wittiquiz, November 1937 Radio-Craft

Radio Wittiquiz, November 1937 Radio-Craft - RF CafeMixing a little fun with learning has always been a good motivation for students. I have written in the past about a particular electronic circuits professor I had that liked to play practical jokes during lessons and exams. Including gag options on a multiple choice test is a great way to inject a bit of tension-easing levity while at the same time eliminating one or more opportunities to guess at a wrong answer (although no relief for the truly clueless). I sometimes do that on the RF Cafe Quizzes that I generate. Radio-Craft printed a large bunch of such quiz questions under the title "Radio WittiQuiz," where the questions and answers were provided by readers. Here is one from November 1937 ...

Soldering Gun Doubles as Resistance Soldering Tool

Tips & Techniques: Soldering Gun Doubles as Resistance Soldering Tool, December 1973 Popular Electronics - RF CafeHere are a few good soldering tips that appeared in a 1973 issue of Popular Electronics magazine. One suggests using hot melt glue to hold components and cables in place both for soldering and just to keep them from moving during normal use. Another describes how to turn a standard pistol type soldering gun into a resistance soldering tool. It actually works pretty well for soldering sheet brass and copper, but do keep in mind that there is a live voltage between the two sections of wire when they are not making contact with the work piece. There's also a recommended method of soldering stranded or braided wire like coaxial cable shielding without having so much of the solder wick into the braid beyond where you want it (another way is to clamp a heatsink on the braid to prevent excess wicking) ...

WKRP in Cincinnati: "As God As My Witness, I Thought Turkeys Could Fly"

WKRP in Cincinnati: "As God As My Witness, I Thought Turkeys Could Fly" - RF CafeAnyone who watched the WKRP in Cincinnati sitcom back in the 1970s has to remember what was one of the funniest episodes ever. Here is the 4 minutes that made Prime Time history. In this Thanksgiving episode, station owner Arthur Carlson decided he would surprise the community with good deed - that doubled as a promotional stunt for his radio station - by dropping turkeys from a helicopter for lucky shoppers at the local shopping mall. Watch the disaster unfold as Les Nessman reports live, and then hear Carlson's final comment that is still used or alluded to in many comic routines. Posting this video is an RF Cafe tradition. Have a Happy Thanksgiving! ...

Bell Telephone Labs Advertisement: Pipe Circuits

Bell Telephone Laboratories Advertisement: Pipe Circuits, November 1948 Radio & Television News - RF CafeI have always been a stickler for creating neat, orderly arrangements when building any type of circuit assembly. Many moons ago when starting out as an electrician, I made a point of installing straight runs of Romex type cable with no twists, evenly spaced staples, and keeping the identification marking to the outside. Conduit was precisely bent and installed, again with organized parallel runs and even spacing where possible. Circuit breaker panel wiring looked like something seen in an Apollo space capsule (ok, I exaggerated a bit here). Electrical inspectors often complimented my work. Moving on to an electronics career, the habits carried over when prototyping and even when directing layout for production PCBs or chassis assemblies, including cabling. The greatest enjoyment I had was when laying out runs of waveguide. Standardized manufactured straight  ...

Bomar Crystals Company for Custom Crystals

Bomar Crystals & Osillators - RF CafeWebsite visitor Mike M. wrote a few days ago about his freshly repaired Dilbert candy dispenser, and then responded to my piece about Erie Resistor yesterday. In it was mentioned Bliley Electric, a long-time manufacturer of radio crystals, also located (still) in Erie. Being a practicing Ham operator working in CW (Morse code), Mike was looking for a company that would make a small quantity of custom crystals for him. Bliley passed on the opportunity, so he looked in his home state of New Jersey and contacted Bomar Crystal Company (unofficial motto "I gotcha crystals right hee-ya"). They have a minimum order of $100, but will make custom crystals for you. Bomar's logo has a very vintage look to it.

Hackers Use Wi-Fi to Track You in Your Home

Hackers Use Wi-Fi to Track You in Your Home - RF Cafe"As connected devices such as voice assistants, security cameras, and smart appliances grow in popularity, the homes and offices where they are installed become increasingly filled with a dense web of Wi-Fi signals. A new study from University of Chicago and University of California, Santa Barbara researchers finds that external attackers can use inexpensive technology to turn these ambient signals into motion detectors, monitoring activity inside a building without being detected themselves. With only a small, commercially available Wi-Fi receiver, an attacker from outside the target site can measure the strength of signals emitted from connected devices and monitor a site remotely for motion, sensing whether a room is occupied ..."

Modulating Class "C" Amplifiers

Modulating Class "C" Amplifiers, December 1944 Radio News - RF CafeOnce frequency modulation (FM) began making inroads in the commercial radio broadcast world, it wasn't long until the pundits were writing eulogies for amplitude modulation (AM). There was/is no denying the superiority of FM in terms of both natural (QRN; e.g., lightning, static, arcing contacts) and manmade (QRM; e.g., another radio) interference, but there was already a large installed base of AM radio receivers (and broadcast transmitters) that satisfied their owners' expectations for listening to news, ball games, music, and the well-established repertoire of drama and comedy shows. FM radios were generally more expensive to manufacture, operate, and repair than AM - at least early on, especially since typically FM sets included AM as well. This particular article from a 1944 issue of Radio News magazine discusses class C amplifiers ...

Spectrum Instrumentation AWG Outputs Swing 24 Volts

Spectrum Instrumentation AWG Outputs Swing 24 Volts - RF CafeSpectrum Instrumentation has added six new Arbitrary Waveform Generators (AWGs) to its recently released M2p.65 xx series of PCIe cards. The new AWGs extend the product family's capabilities by boosting the available output range, so that waveforms can be generated with amplitude swings of up to ±12 V into 1 MΩ or ±6 V into 50 Ω. To achieve the higher output voltage ranges, the cards have been fitted with additional amplification and larger cooling plates. This makes the cards a little wider, so that they occupy two PCIe slots, but they are still just 168 mm in length. The small size allows them to fit into almost any PC, turning it into a powerful and flexible waveform generator. The M2p.65xx series AWGs use the latest 16-bit Digital-to-Analog Converters and feature a fast PCIe x4 interface with up to 700 MByte/s streaming speed ...

Erie Resistor Corporation Ad (& Cigarette Lighter)

Erie Resistor Corporation Advertisement, December 1958 Popular Electronics - RF CafeSince I live in Erie, PA, an erstwhile very industrial, albeit small town, it is always nice to run across information on the area in my electronics magazines. There are still a few electronics businesses in Erie, but as with most of the manufacturing from long ago, high tech here is found mostly on the shelves of Best Buy and not on manufacturing lines. One notable exception is Bliley Electric Company, maker of crystal oscillators, who was established in Erie in 1930. Bliley still operates today in a building about two miles from my house. This advertisement from the December 1958 edition of Popular Electronics magazine is by Erie Resistor Company. In doing a Google search, I found a brief history of the company on a UK website. According to the author, Erie Resistor opened a division in Yarmouth in 1932. Here is a reference to Erie Resistor Company being credited for discovering the ferroelectric oxide ...

Methods to Increase Channel Capacity in RF Data Links

Methods to Increase Channel Capacity in RF Data Links - RF CafeStephen Barthelmes and Patrick Sherlock of Triad RF Systems, and Ken Andrew of Non Line-of-Sight Wireless, published this article entitled, "Methods to Increase Channel Capacity in RF Data Links" in Microwave Product Digest. It begins, "As more people and organizations demand higher data rates to stream high definition (HD) video for broadcasting, surveillance, or social media applications, the need for capacity continues to increase for wireless communication systems. In addition, once more advanced technology such as 4K video becomes mainstream, performance pressure on the RF data link for mobile applications will increase to a point where current technology cannot provide acceptable performance. Applications include handheld devices (4G/LTE, 5G), as well as conventional and unmanned vehicles ..."

Finding Relay Operate and Release Times

Finding Relay Operate and Release Times, April 1967 Electronics World - RF CafeSometimes, component datasheets can be pathetically lacking in detail for parameters that you might think would be a minimum amount of information needed in order to integrate the device into a circuit or system. Or, it may be that you found a part in a spare parts box and can't find a datasheet for it. When those times come, it is necessary to characterize the part yourself. Relay control really isn't rocket science when it comes to electrical circuits, but there are a few rules of thumb that should always be observed, the most important of which (other than not exceeding voltage and current maximums) is to wire a diode reverse biased across the coil terminals so that the voltage/current induced due to the field collapse during de-energizing does not smoke the driver circuit ...
