Electronics-Themed Comics

December 1949 Radio-Electronics

December 1949 Radio-Electronics Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Electronics, published 1930-1988. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Here are a few examples of what was considered cutting-edge technology humor back in 1949. These three tech-themed comics appeared in Radio-Electronics magazine. The first one won't mean much to anyone who has never watched a television with a cathode ray tube (CRT), but only on an LED or LCD screen. The next comic is a bit corny and plays off the confusion some people had with the name assigned (actually the spelling thereof) to the lower audio frequencies. The last is a pun on the extreme measures sometimes needed to pull in a TV broadcast station before the days of cable and satellite service.

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...
