Electronics-Themed Comics
September 1949 Radio & Television News

September 1949 Radio & TV News
September 1949 Radio & Television News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

What better way is there to resuscitate a challenging work day than to kick back and enjoy these electronics-themed comics from a vintage edition of Radio & Television News magazine? Seeing a comic panel in any modern technical magazine these days is rare, if for no other reason than a fear amongst publishers (and their lawyers) that somebody, somewhere might be offended. You have my invitation to create a good-humored cartoon about me or RF Cafe anytime you wish, and I promise not to sue you. I'll even post it here on the website if you like. BTW, these comics make great fodder for the front page of your technical presentations - a good way to soften the edge going into a meeting, especially if you are not good at delivering jokes.

About RF Cafe

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...
