Electronics-Themed Comics April and September
1954 Radio & Television News
Today has been a busy day, so a couple electronics-themed comics from issues
of vintage Radio & Television News magazines help to relieve the stress
a bit. I could never figure out why these comics were buried deep inside most issues
at the ends of article continuations. These two were on pages 88 and 93. The top
one is meant to demonstrate just how obsessed the public was with the relatively
new television phenomenon - just look at what they chose to ignore on the display
TV in order to get a peek at the inside workings of a television set. The other
comic, while clever in its intent, would never pass editorial muster in today's
world because of the great hazard it represents. 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...
