Electronics-Themed Comics
February 1952 and January 1953 Radio & Television News

These three electronics-themed comics appeared in circa 1952 and 1953 Radio & Television News magazine. For some reason the early 50s were a little comic challenged, that is to say only one or two usually appeared in each edition. I really like the one with the guy hanging from the antenna! He needs the rotator to turn him back over the roof. You probably have to have lived in the vacuum tube TV era to appreciate the humor in the comic with the homeowners rolling out the red carpet for the repairman. It's hard to make out the artists' names, but they have appeared on other comics of the era. If you enjoy comics like this, there is a growing list of other comics at the bottom of the page you can check out.

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...
