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...

Electronics Themed Comics
October 1945 Radio-Craft Article

October 1945 Radio-Craft

October 1945 Radio Craft Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

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

Radio-Craft magazine's "Radio Term Illustrated" feature of electronics-themed comics was very popular. Famous artist Frank Beaven, who created illustrations for numerous publications at the time, took ideas submitted by readers and turned them into clever word (or phrase) pictures. You will need to consider some of them from the viewpoint of someone in the 1945 era in which they were made. I don't know if women Navy personnel are referred to as WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service ) anymore - probably not. Arcing from motor armature brushes was a common cause of radio interference in the days of AM broadcasting, hence "brush discharge." Enjoy!
