Dave Harbaugh drew the semi-regular
"Hobnobbing with Harbaugh" series of comic strips in Popular Electronics.
His themes were always in the situational comedy style of the day where Ham operators
were depicted as victims of their own obsession with amateur radio, their wives'
lack of an equal obsession with amateur radio, or being at the mercy of some well-meaning
but ignorant neighbor, police officer, store clerk, or other such individual. This
particular comic has an on-the-scene TV anchorman making KN3OB's life heck. I
colored the first panel.
