October 1948 Radio & TV News
October 1948 Radio & Television News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919 - 1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Here are a few electronics-themed comics from a 1948 edition of Radio & Television News magazine. I particularly like the one from page 92.

The definition implied by the proprietor is #19 a :  to bear the charges of holding or having (as stocks or merchandise) from one time to another. The definition inferred by the lady is #1:  to move while supporting. How can one word have so many definitions?

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 ...
