Electronics-Themed Comics March, April, July, and August 1958 Radio-Electronics Article(Title)

January 1958 Radio-Electronics

January 1958 Radio-Electronics Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

These articles are scanned and OCRed from old editions of the Radio & Television News magazine. Here is a list of the Radio-Electronics articles I have already posted. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Being a great appreciator of good humor, and especially technology-related humor, I made sure to scan these comics from the pages of vintage Radio-Electronics magazines. You might have to have lived through the era of televisions with cathode ray tubes (CRTs) to fully appreciate the frustration of trying to acceptably grab, align, define, sharpen, tone, and lock an over-the-air broadcast signal on track*. Stories of people putting feet or baseball bats through the sets were a big source of situational humor.
