ARRL's QST magazine. Here is a list of the
QST articles I have already posted. As time permits, I will

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.
