September 1967 Popular Electronics

September 1967 Popular Electronics Cover - RF CafeTable 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.

It's time for a few more electronics-themed comics. This set from four different artists comes from the September 1967 issue of Popular Electronics magazine. Users of modern, solid state radio gear are not familiar with the kinds of problems that plagued the older vacuum tube equipment - mainly overheating and a tendency for that smoke that is supposed to remain inside resistors and capacitors leaking out and breaking the set. One good thing about the overheated components that help with troubleshooting is that the designers at the factory added a chemical to give off the unique burnt resistor or capacitor odor that let you sniff out the faulty part; you know, kind of like the odor added to natural gas (which itself is odorless) to alert you to a leak. Be sure to use one or more of these in the opening slides of your next presentation for putting your audience in a good mood. See the full list of comics at the bottom of the page. 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 Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
