Electronics-Themed Comics
April and May 1946 Radio-Craft

Here are another trio of vintage electronics-themed comics from Radio-Craft magazine. Two are part of illustrator Frank Beaven's "Radio Terms Illustrated" series, where readers would write in with suggestions and Mr. Beaven would put the ideas in ink. These two are "Poor Reception, and "Regeneration." If you look at the bottom of the page, you will find a big listing of other comics, with many of the other "Radio Terms Illustrated" instances ("High Potential," "Signal Generator," "Overload Capacity," "Amplitude," "Transmission Loss," etc.) labeled. Enjoy!

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...
