It's Election Day 2018, and depending on how the voting goes, some of us (hopefully not me) are going to need some cheering up when it's all over. If that includes you, then here is a dose of high tech POPULAR ELEComics levity to help ease your "My Side Lost and the World Is Going to End" blues. The first of this set of comics from a 1967 issue of Popular Electronics magazine could serve as an ironic tribute to the day. On the other hand, if your side wins and you're on cloud nine, then I suggest you exercise caution when seeing these comics because the added joviality might cause you to swoon from overstimulation. Of course if you are not an American or do not care about elections or happen upon this page after the 2018 mid-term elections, please enjoy these comics in the usual manner. The comics are by Mr. Marvin Townsend, who did a lot of the comics for Popular Electronics.

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 ...
