    NOTE: The ARRL provides a complete from 1915 to the most edition. Access is free to ARRL members.

    One unexpected discovery is that the average reader must have had better near vision eyesight than today because the print size was very tiny. Even as recently as 1943, a large portion of people could not afford corrective lenses so unless either a reading magnifier was a staple of every household or it was common practice for the person with the best eyesight in the house to read QST aloud to the poorly sighted of the house, the only conclusion can be that the average citizen had better eyesight than today. I write that only partly in jest; a search for scientific data to back my suspicion was not fruitful.   See response from Joe B.

    Kirt,   Re: The old QST font size.   During WWII everything was rationed, including paper and ink, because materials were needed for the war.   Magazines were permitted because to not print them would hurt morale.  And since the Army and Navy (and Marines) needed radio operators, I suspect QST was near the top of the permitted list.   But the smaller the font, the more you500彩票手机快三在线投注 could squeeze into a given issue.   73

    I have written before about the incredible resource for RF engineers and hobbyists that is the ARRL's monthly publication, QST. Since its first edition in December, 1915, the magazine has been chock full of useful information. As would be expected, the nature of content has evolved over time to have the greatest appeal to contemporary readers. Correspondingly, reviewing past issues provides a peek back into history not only to learn of vintage equipment and events, but also it lets us see the difference in the nature of readers, most notably their expectations in content, prose, etc.

    These articles were scanned and OCRed from copies of vintage QST magazines that I purchased on e-Bay. I took the trouble to OCR them in order to provide searchable text for people who are trying to find specific items: equipment, companies, friends, even themselves.

    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 Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
