Electronics-Themed Comics
November 1953 Radio-Electronics

November 1953 Radio-Electronics

November 1953 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.

It's about time for a little joviality so here are the three technology-themed comics which appeared in the November 1953 issue of Radio-Electronics magazine. They cover a wide range of situations experienced by electronics types back in the day, including the fickleness of customers, an exaggeration of an explorer's unexpected discovery deep in a jungle, and the frustrated indignation of a parts supplier by the selective memory of a serviceman in need of replacement components. 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...
