July 1944 QST
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.
today being the 69th anniversary (June 6, 1944) of the
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
highlights the precision to which its meter movement pivots are manufactured.
