March 1970 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.

Here is a little electronics hobbyist humor in the form of a comic series titled "Hobnobbing with Harbaugh," compliments of Dave Harbaugh in the March 1970 issue of Popular Electronics.

The marriage proposal comic can be considered as "amateur" in more ways than one! You don't need to be an amateur radio operator to appreciate these comic strips.

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...
