Electronics-Themed Comics
May 1952 and May 1956 Radio & Television News

I don't know about the rest of the country, but this Monday morning in Erie, Pennsylvania, is cold and snowy*. That means people going to work had to shovel their driveways, maybe brush snow and ice off their windows, and brave hazardous conditions on the streets on the way to the office. Moods are understandably less than jovial and nerves might be shot. For those of you who identify with this scenario, these electronics-themed comics from a couple vintage Radio & Television News magazines might help assuage your anxieties. The same goes for those who are in Southern California and managed to arrive safely from a commute on the notoriously unfriendly highways there. As with many of these old comics, you have to be privy to the mindset of the day to fully appreciate the topic. TV repair was big business and people were fascinated with the boob tube innovation rapidly consuming the attention of domestic dwellers. The first comic might be PC enough to appear in a modern electronics magazine, but the second certainly would not. It takes courage to reproduce anything like it these days. You're welcome.

* Since many of you can relate to the situation, you might be interested in seeing this article from the Erie Times News reporting on how basically the state roads department (PennDOT) say don't even both trying to file a claim for damage to your car due to potholes - they never pay out. Too bad, so sad. Just pay your taxes and shut up.

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 Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
