Electronics-Themed Comics
November 1959 Radio-Electronics Article

November 1959 Radio-Electronics

November 1959 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.

Mondays usually need help to keep spirits up. Even though this is a three-day holiday weekend (Labor Day) weekend in the U.S., it is just another Monday in the rest of the world. Accordingly, here are a handful of electronics-themed comics from a 1959 issue of Radio-Electronics magazine. You need to keep in mind the relative newness of televisions at the time, with the reverence toward - and frustration with - the technology. Lots of artists had fun poking fun at TV's and those who watched and serviced them. If you are in the U.S. and don't see this until after returning to work, have a happy Tuesday. BTW, there is a huge list of technology-themed comics at the bottom of the page - I've been posting them for a couple decades now. You're welcome ;-)

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...
