April 1932 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.

Not everyone is into radio history, so items like this advertisement for Spartan Radio's Model 60 Short-Wave Receiver (April 1932 QST) will not invoke much or any interest. On the other hand, there is a large contingent of hobbyists and professionals who enjoy seeing these snapshots of the places from whence we have come technically. Products like radios, kitchen appliances, automobiles, etc., were constructed very robustly with metal, wood, and fabric. No cheap plastic will be found anywhere, but maybe not for the reason you think - plastic as we know it today had not entered the commercial marketplace yet. In fact, many 'modern' plastic formulas and processes were a closely held military secrets until the end of World War II.
