Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Craft, published 1929 - 1953. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Illustrating (literally) once again the fascination the public had with television during its heyday from the late 1940s to the 1960s, this set of electronics-themed comics from a 1948 issue of Radio-Craft magazine depict the humorous situations both real and imagined for the technology. Artist Frank Beaven, a frequent contributor to the publication, took suggestions by reads and turned them into comics. The concept of multi-sensory TV experiences were common, including not just sight and sound, but also smell and tactile sensations. 3-D projection and large screens were also envisioned in the comics. The page 124 comic is my favorite as it exhibits a tried and true sales technique for securing business from guys. Interestingly, note that the comic on page 86 is credited to someone from Tel-Aviv, Palestine. A few months after this issue hit the new stands, Israel established its independence and established itself as a sovereign nation for the first time in two millennia. After that, Mr. Strudler's address was Tel-Aviv, Israel.

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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
