About RF Cafe

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...

Electronics-Themed Comics
October & November 1958 Radio-Electronics Article

October 1958 Radio-Electronics

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

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Electronics, published 1930-1988. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Comics are a great source of levity to take you away from the day's normal flow of events. My favorite comic strips contain themes that relate to familiar scenarios or that catch me by surprise with their message. Technically themed strips like this collection from Radio-Electronics magazine are particularly welcome, but I do not appreciate gratuitous meanness and never care to see death, dismemberment, or gore. Call me a prude, but I'm shocked sometime by what appears in the daily newspaper comic strips (yes, I still read the comics - and work the puzzles - every day). There are plenty more comics where these came from, so stay tuned if you like them, too. Come to think of it, maybe the "Fast" in "Fast TV Service" on page 102 in the November 1958 comic is a double entendre.
