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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

April 1945 QST

RF Cafe - April 1945 QST CoverTable of Contents

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from QST, published December 1915 - present (visit ARRL for info). All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Collins Radio Company (later on Rockwell Collins and now Collins Aerospace) has been around since 1933. Like the vast majority of U.S. companies during the World War II era, they - management and employees - took great pride in doing their part for the war effort. Unlike today, when a relatively few people actually know someone on active duty in the armed forces, workers were very likely to have a brother, son, father, or husband in the service.

Here is an advertisement that I scanned out of my copy of the April 1945 QST magazine. It mentions that many of the employees are amateur radio operators. During the war, a call went out for surplus equipment from all sources, including amateurs, so some sacrificed their personal equipment for the good of the nation. Try that today and see how far you get.

If you are interested in old Collins equipment, you will want to visit the Collins Collectors Association and the Collins Radio Association websites.
