Comics with an Electronics Theme
September 1965 Popular Electronics

September 1965 Popular Electronics

September 1965 Popular Electronics Cover - RF CafeTable of Contents

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Popular Electronics, published October 1954 - April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

These electronics-themed comics from vintage issues of electronics magazines were usually funny even without being privy to the particulars of the topic to which it alludes. A couple guys shipwrecked on a floating hunk of wooden hull is usually the basis for a laughable comic. However, in this case the zip code mention was particularly significant in 1965 since the U.S. Post Office had only recently, in 1963, implemented the nationwide 5-digit zip code system, so it was in the news and in the forefront of people's minds. High fidelity stereo systems were also all the rage in the mid 1960's, as evidenced by all the print space allocated to it in Popular Electronics and other magazines.

About RF Cafe

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...
