Comics with an Electronics Theme
March 1965 Popular Electronics

March 1965 Popular Electronics

March 1965 Popular Electronics Cover - RF Cafe  Table of Contents

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Popular Electronics, published October 1954 - April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

TGIF, and that means tech-themed comics from vintage electronics magazines if I happen to have any. You'll really appreciate the comic on page 96 of the 1965 issue of Popular Electronics. In a way, the drawing's concept was very prescient regarding the future of flexible, bendable circuits. A big part of the electronics world at the time centered around servicing all the newfangled circuits and test equipment for troubleshooting and aligning them. As is still true today, technology changed quickly and there was always a newer model television, radio, tape recorder, stereo system, video recorder, etc. Customer interactions and repair shop experiences provided plenty of amusing fodder for magazine articles and comics.

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...
