June 1969 Electronics World Cover - RF Cafe  Table of Contents 

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Electronics World, published May 1959 - December 1971. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

If you wanted a career as an electronics technician at the end of World War II, the world was your oyster - so to speak. Electronics and communications trade magazines and publications like Mechanix Illustrated and Popular Science ran a plethora of ads monthly that offered unlimited opportunity to men seeking a career servicing the burgeoning market of postwar technological marvels. Even though the enclosures were not yet being marked with "No user serviceable parts inside," that fact was most people were not qualified - nor did they want - to monkey with the guts of radios, televisions, and other household appliances provided ample favorable circumstance to the ambitious wannabe technician. Of course the field extended well beyond domestic products to military and commercial venues. Regardless of a person's interests, financial security, prestige, and a lifetime of satisfaction were a sure thing after successful completion of one of these training courses - whether in a classroom or at home with a mail order plan. Believe it or not, there is still plenty of opportunity today for electronics technicians who want to service household appliances if they are willing to do business via Internet clientele; YouTube is full of guys hacking their services for repairing vintage equipment as well as modern equipment like cellphones and out-of-warranty audio/visual gear.

BTW, the answer given for Q2 is more correctly 21.4 Vpk-pk since when the reverse biased Zener is conducting at 10, the forward biased Zener would be at around 0.7 V, so the total would be 2 * (10 + 0.7) V = 21.4 Vpk-pk. Yes? No?

Can you solve these two basic problems in electronics?

This one is relatively simple:

When Switch S2 is closed, which lamp bulbs light up?

Note: If you had completed only the first lesson of any of the RCA Institutes Home Study programs, you could have solved this problem.

This one's a little more difficult:

What is the output voltage (p-p)?

Note: If you had completed the first lesson in the new courses in Solid State Electronics, you could have easily solved this problem.

RCA Institutes Mailer Card - RF CafeAnswers:

Problem 1 - they all light up
Problem 2 - 20 Volts (p-p)

These new courses include the latest findings and techniques in this field. Information you must have if you are to service today's expanding multitude of solid state instruments and devices used in Television, Digital, and Communications Equipment.
