June 1944 QST Article

June 1944 QST

June 1944 QST  Cover - RF Cafe[Table 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 (if any) are hereby acknowledged.
Here is an advertisement for Hytron Corporation that I scanned from page 83 of my copy of the June 1944 QST magazine. Hytron was a manufacturer of electron tubes. "So Many Owe So Much To So Few," reds the title line. That is a paraphrase of Winston Churchill's famous statement during World War II, "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." That was in August 21, 1940, more than a year before the U.S. entered the war. Perhaps of greater interest to RF Cafe visitors are the next lines: "In peace, the Nation's debt to the radio amateur was great. During hurricanes, floods, and other disasters, he sprang forward with emergency communications. His endless hours of patient experimentations - particularly on the high and ultrahigh  frequencies - helped open up, as if by magic, whole new segments of the radio spectrum. Traffic enthusiasts surprised the people with unselfish service; DX hounds fostered international goodwill."

"In this "radio" war, the "ham," along with the professional, became the back­bone around which the Services and war plants built the myriad, complex communications systems of war, and the secret electronic weapons. He has trained and inspired the new recruits - the tens of thousands of potential "hams." Hytron, especially, owes much to the radio amateur. When he entered the Services and war plants, he took with him a knowledge of Hytron tubes ­ particularly v-h-f types-and an admiration for them. Through his enthusiasm, these tubes became vital parts of war equipment. When the time comes to speak out for the return of his precious frequencies, Hytron will not forget him. "
