Hobnobbing with Harbaugh - Just Plain QRM
January 1962 Popular Electronics

January 1962 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.

Here is a little electronics hobbyist humor in the form of comics, compliments of Dave Harbaugh. These comics appeared in the January 1962 issue of Popular Electronics magazine. Dave liked to include amateur radio themes in his comics. For the non-Ham, QRM is the Q-code for "manmade interference." You don't need to be an amateur radio operator to appreciate those first two scenarios. The others are more generally related to electronics. A search of RF Cafe for "Harbaugh" will turn up many more of his works. As has been my practice of late, I colorized these comics.
