Here is an advertisement by Western Electric from the August 25, 1945, edition of The Saturday Evening Post magazine. As with many of the advertisements of the era, this ad refers to the company's contribution to the war effort during WWII. "How communications help tighten the ring," accompanies a map of the Japanese islands. All forms of battlefield and shipboard communications benefitted from the innovations of Western Electric scientists, engineers, and assembly line workers. These days Western Electric manufactures special purpose audio frequency vacuum tubes and amplifiers to use them. They're not cheap. Back in 1945, Western Electric was a major manufacturer of telephone and telegraph equipment for Bell Telephone, Western Union, and America Telephone & Telegraph (AT&T). Look at the bottom of your dial type telephone and you'll probably see the name there. Dr. Lee de Forest, inventor of the Audion amplifier tube, worked for Western Union.

Western Electric advertisement from the August 25, 1945, edition of the Saturday Evening Post - RF CafeWestern Electric

IN PEACE... Source of supply for the Bell System

IN WAR... Arsenal of communications equipment

"As our fighters tighten the ring around Japan, vast distances must be spanned. Every mile nearer to Tokyo adds another mile to the enormous network of communications needed to serve an area 35 times that of the United States [not including Alaska and Hawaii, which did not obtain statehood until 1958, ed.].

Every day we're pouring more men, more ships, more planes, tanks and guns into the battle. As they put the final squeeze on Tokyo, our forces must have additional quantities of radar, radio and telephone equipment Western Electric is making.

As military needs are met, Western Electric will carry on with ever increasing tempo its 63 year old job of supplying what Bell Telephone Systems needs. You can count on us to di this with the same skill, energy, enthusiasm, and speed we have put into our big war job."

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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
