Electronics-Themed Comics: Radio Term Illustrated
May 1947 Radio-Craft

May 1947 Radio-Craft

May 1947 Radio Craft Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Craft, published 1929 - 1953. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Many topics of the electronics-themed comics which appeared in Radio−Craft were suggested by the magazine's readers. Staff artist like Frank Beaven turned those suggestion into cartoons. For a while there was a special feature called "Radio Term Illustrated" where, as the name suggests, terms like "Signal Generator" and "High Potential" are rendered in farcical form. These four comics, two of each type, appeared in a May 1947 issue of Radio−Craft. I have to admit that even with my familiarity with vintage electronics memes I do not get the Television "Organ" comic (yes, I understand the organ grinder, but not how it applies to TV).

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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
