Electronics-Themed Comics
April 1969 & May 1969 Electronics World

Reader Service Card Electronics World - RF CafeAre you old enough to remember when Reader Service Cards were inserted into the binding of magazines? One of these circa 1969 tech-themed comics has the husband anxiously telling his wife to hurry and send in a Reader Service Card for his radio system that was spewing parts. The fact is that was not the purpose of Reader Service Cards; they were for getting product information, not for requesting repairs or replacement parts. Reader Service Cards were the old world version of website URLs and QR (quick response) scan codes seen in contemporary print ads. Each advertisement in the magazine had a Reader Service Number printed on it, so you would take your pen and draw circles around the matching numbers on the Reader Service card, then mail it to the publisher.

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...
