Female RF Cafe visitors might be interested to learn from this "Within the Industry" column which appeared in the 1958 Radio & TV News magazine of Helen Staniland Quam being elected president of the Association of Electronic Parts & Equipment Manufacturers, Inc. She was the first woman to head a major trade group in the electronics industry. A couple pages away in the same issue carried a half-page advertisement for her Quam−Nichols Company. The company was a primary supplier of audio speakers for radio and television original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and for commercial loudspeaker installations. Sadly, other than a mention or two in vintage electronics magazines, there is not much about her accomplishments to be found on the Web. She evidently remarried and assumed the name Helen Staniland Quam Bean, and became president of the Atlanta Music Club.

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...
