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

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...
