Mercury vapor bulb - RF CafeWhat better way to finish out a week that to enjoy a few vintage electronics-themed comics? This quartet appeared in the November 1960 issue of Radio-Electronics magazine. The one on page 81 reminds me of where I worked as an electrician on a work-study program my senior year of high school (and for another year thereafter). The company was Bausum & Duckett Electric, in Edgewater, Maryland. Shortly after arriving there the conference room where the managers, engineers, and upper level electricians (none of which included yours truly) held meetings was renovated, and part of the new furniture was a huge table in the shape of a mercury vapor lamp - pretty darn clever IMHO. The comic on page 100 is my favorite from this batch; the look on the guy's face is priceless! Solar power was just becoming a big deal in the early 1960s, so there were a lot of comics built on that theme, as well as the immensely popular hi-fi system craze of the day.

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    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...
