Electronics-Themed Comics
July 1951 Radio & Television News

July 1951 Radio & Television News
July 1951 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.

The early 1950s was a time when people worldwide were making a shift from radio to television as the primary form of in-home entertainment. There was an aura of awe associated with TV with its ability to send recorded movies and live shows over the air without any physical connection (although it can be argued that an electromagnetic wave is "physical," since it is part of the study of physics). Of course often times the feeling of awe was replaced by a feeling of rage when the blasted thing went on the fritz. Then, the television repairman became the objet d'awe (I just made up that phrase, a la objet d'art). Two of these three tech-themed comics are typical of the era. The other is timeless and could be a modern comic if something other than vacuum tube equipment was shown in the scene. 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...
