RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

|New Jobs for Tubes
In a rapidly changing field like radio, readers naturally look to our pages to reflect radio's varying trends.
During the past few years the editors have repeatedly called attention to the increasing applications of vacuum tubes and amplifier equipment in fields outside of space radio. These uses have come to be known under the broader term of "electronic" applications. Today, tubes find uses everywhere in industry, business, communications, therapeutics, and scientific research. Maintenance and servicing of these opens wider opportunities for local radio men.
For many months the editors have sought to keep radio readers in touch with these new electronic developments through our own pages. Looking back over the last two years, many articles and many columns in this magazine have been devoted to describing these new electronic uses.
But now that the electronic field is receiving new and tremendous impetus under the drive of war, it becomes apparent that the electronic industries are too vast and important to receive only incidental or departmental attention in the pages of Radio Retailing Today.
Of course, in duty to our radio readers, Radio Retailing Today will continue to treat of electronic servicing as an opportunity for the local serviceman. Radio Retailing Today will continue to interpret electronic devices and circuits in wide use, to help servicemen do a good job when called into this new field.
|But to serve the great electronic groups
now rapidly growing up, your publishers announce a new magazine
"Electronic Industries" to appear next month, to treat fully
of electronics in all its aspects - manufacture, applications,
communications - design, production and use.
Page 48 of this issue, describes this new magazine further, and interprets its relationship to the field of Radio Retailing Today.
Every Minute Counts!
Every minute of production action is for us.
Every minute of non-productive time counts against us. It is the job of everyone of us to see that our time counts for US and against Hitler, Hirohito, et al.
And to only a lesser degree, the same applies to every dealer, every serviceman, every business man, who finds the conduct of his business complicated and jeopardized by our War Effort.
In the solution of your own problems, too, time is important,-for time is slipping fast away.
It's up to you to make every minute count for you. Things will not get better by themselves.
Your action is needed-today - and every day.
Your wartime tasks are never done, so long as war clouds darken our horizon.
