Hopefully, you are winding down operations for the week and getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving with a long weekend. This trio of electronics-themed comics from a 1946 issue of Radio−Craft magazine will help get you in a jovial spirit, regardless of whether or not you're getting the long weekend. I've mentioned many times that these comics make a good source of levity for adding to your presentations. As you might have guessed if you are familiar with Frank Beaven, he drew the top and bottom comics. He also drew the middle one. Two of these comics are part of his "Radio Term Illustrated" series, where magazine readers sent him suggestions for a theme that could serve, along with his drawing, as a sort of double entendre. 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...
