Electronics-Themed Comics

June 1952 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.

I really like the electronics themed comic that appeared on page 36 of the June 1952 issue of Radio-Electronics magazine. Like with this one, many of the ideas for the comics are provided by readers, and then are incorporated by artists such as Frank Beaven, a frequent contributor. Note in that comic the name of the repair shop is the first name of the guy who submitted it - a sort of hat-tip to the guy. As with many of the comics, I have taken the liberty of colorizing them in order to spice them up a bit. The page 78 comic represents the frustration (and annoyance) a lot of in-home electronics servicemen had to endure from customers who desperately want their help, but then wouldn't leave them alone to do their jobs - and then often tried to cheat them out of the pay they earned.

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...
