December 1939 Radio News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Until the last couple decades, people of the world recognized and called out evil by name when it reared its ugly head. Except for subversive imbedded agents, media outlets - radio, television, print, speeches, etc. - openly and vigorously condemned and attacked the enemy of its country's traditional way of life. The theme ran deep and wide in news reports and in magazine features. This advertisement for Air Adventures magazine which appeared in early 1940s Radio News magazine is an example. In the place of politically correct speech that doesn't dare to offend an entity which openly and maniacally seeks to kill you we had the vast majority of media promoting nationalism and patriotism in order to defeat the enemy. We sought not to "understand" but to destroy our deadly foes. Now, those who desire the destruction of traditional Western civilization hold high offices in the various countries. Careful what you wish for...

As with just about everything, eBay is a good source of these vintage Air Adventures magazines. This particular publication only ran for three editions. However, there were plenty of other titles that featured stories of heroic adventures against the Nazi scum ;-)  Flying Aces magazine had the adventures of Kerry Keen and Barney O'Dare thwarting German and Japanese forces during World War II, and Philip Strange confounding German troops during World War I.

Nazi Bombers Over Scotland

Swiftly the Nazi bomber roared toward its objective, the Spitfire in close pursuit! Whitey Trail dove grimly down his motor thundering a promise of death to the bomber! In a moment the great bridge below would be blown to bits, unless Trail stopped the Nazi raider! Down ... down ... down, like a flashing comet ... then Whitey Trail sobbed, broke, whirled the plane viciously away. Before his eyes loomed the up-thrust pylons of the bridge. Pylons! Always pylons! Trail couldn't stand pylons. They made him remember something ... something that threw utter terror into his soul! An unreasoning, resistless terror that made a coward of him. Dimly through his fear-clouded brain he heard the roar of exploding bombs. The Nazi bomber had reached his objective! And he, Whitey Trail, could have prevented it. Why hadn't he? Why did he go into a blue funk at the mere sight of the pylons? Don't fail to read the answer in

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

1996 - 2024


Kirt Blattenberger,


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...
