July 1944 QST Article

July 1944 QST

July 1944 QST  Cover - RF CafeTable of Contents

These articles are scanned and OCRed from old editions of the ARRL's QST magazine. Here is a list of the QST articles I have already posted. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

U.S. Army D-Day graphic - RF CafeWith today being the 69th anniversary (June 6, 1944) of the D-Day invasion of Normandy on the coast of France, I thought posting this advertisement from the July 1944 edition of QST would be apropos. This issue of the magazine probably arrived in ARRL member's mailboxes within a couple weeks of the miraculously successful invasion of Omaha Beach, Utah Beach, Gold Beach, Juno Beach, and Sword Beach. When you consider that in those days - and also not so long ago for that matter - the lead time for going to the printing presses was measured in months, the fact that this ad made the final cut for the next month's issue (July) is noteworthy. Accordingly, I duly make note.

Here is an advertisement that I scanned out of my copy of the July 1944 QST magazine. It highlights the precision to which its meter movement pivots are manufactured.
