Here is a little electronics hobbyist humor in the form of a comic series titled "Hobnobbing with Harbaugh," compliments
of Popular Electronics. Citizens Band radio and dirty hippies were the topic of the day in the 1970, so that's
what you see in a couple of these comics. 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.
