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...

"He no sooner gets alone with a sweater girl than he's trying to pull the wool over her eyes." That's a really old joke that only old guys like me remember. "Sweater Girl" was a term used to describe... how to properly put it... um, you know, the Dolly Parton types... those who have a good singing voice Winking Smiley - RF Cafe. While that is not the purpose of a sweater girl overtly used in this article from a 1944 edition of Radio-Craft, you can bet the authors intended the term as an eye-catcher. I thought you might need to be apprised of the origin of the term to appreciate the title. You're welcome. 

"Sweater Girls" Are Really in Demand at This Plant

"Sweater Girls" Are Really in Demand at This Plant, November 1944 Radio Craft - RF Cafe"Sweater girls" are welcomed in at least one branch of war industry. The lassie checking set operation in simulated stratosphere temperatures of 65 degrees below zero finds her sweater very useful indeed. The photograph was taken in the Inspection Department of the Bendix Radio plant at Baltimore, and the radios are destined for our high-ceiling aircraft.
