Electronics-Themed Comics

February 1960 Radio-Electronics

February 1960 Radio-Electronics Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Electronics, published 1930-1988. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Three out of five of these electronics-themed comics are fire related. Maybe that was a common issue back in 1960 when they appeared in Radio−Electronics magazine, but it was probably just a coincidence. The page 39 comic has a topic common in the earlier days of television as can be seen in some of the others in the huge list of electronics- and technology-themed comics at the bottom the the page. Being a lifelong teetotaler, I can't really relate to the page 153 comic, but I'm guessing a lot of RF Cafe visitors can appreciate it.

* ChatGPT came up with this when queried about the etymology of the word "teetotaler:"

The word "teetotaler" is derived from the phrase "T-total," which was used in the early 19th century in England to describe a person who completely abstained from alcohol. The origin of the phrase is uncertain, but one theory suggests that it was derived from the practice of using a "T" to mark a person's name on a pledge card, indicating their commitment to abstaining from alcohol. The word "teetotaler" first appeared in print in the 1830s, and it quickly became a popular term for those who abstained from alcohol. The word gained popularity in the temperance movement, which was a social movement that advocated for the prohibition of alcohol. Today, the word "teetotaler" is still used to describe someone who abstains from alcohol completely, often for personal or religious reasons.

About RF Cafe

    Kirt Blattenberger,


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...
