The Orange County Amateur Radio Club publishes a monthly newsletter titled “RF” (Radio Frequency). The first issue was printed in November of 1953. In the early years the publication was sporatic, but it grew into an eight page newsletter for many years and into the even larger newsletter it is today.

These issues of “RF” are in PDF format. Adobe provides a free PDF reader program for all popular operating systems. The latest versions are available by clicking on the Adobe Acrobat© logo above to the right. Later versions of the Macintosh© OS X also include a program called Preview that will open and display PDF files.

On August 18th I completed scanning the 1986 - 1991 issues of RF from our historian's library binder of “RF” Newsletters. Many required extensive digital restoration and some still need improvement which can only be done by retyping. Other than occasional issues that were produced on very poor copying machines, the biggiest problem is that no one seemed to care about margins back in the eighties. Consequently, when the historian three-hole punched them, content was often destroyed. A lot of man-hours were spent determining what the missing characters and words were, and then finding the needed words, partial words or characters in the remaining text and restoring the missing text.

Currently the archives go back through 1985 and are mostly complete. I was editor in 1985 and kept original copies (and honored margins) so they are also included. Some random issues prior to 1985 that were found in miscellaneous locations are also included.

This was a lot of work over almost six months. After a break, we will see if the historian has an earlier binder of “RF” Newsletters to be added.
