Electronics-Themed Comics

February 1948 Radio News
February 1948 Radio 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.

This posting is one of more than 220 pages of electronics-themed comics from vintage electronics magazines like Radio & Television News, Radio Craft, Electronics World, Popular Electronics, and others. It is rare to find a comic in a trade magazine these days, probably due to fear of offending the sensibilities of some person who is a member of Generation Snowflake, causing him/her/it to curl up in the fetal position in a Safe Space. Some people have no sense of humor unless it is directed against a preferred foe. Being of an emotionally hardier generation, I can laugh at ribbing directed at me as long as it is done without malice.

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...
