Electronics-Themed Comics

June 1962 Radio-Electronics

June 1962 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.

This quad of electronics-related comics appeared in the March 1967 issue of Radio−Electronics magazine. Their themes reflect the norms and issues of the era. If you have ever had to re-string the dial cord on a radio where the path turned a few corners and ran around three or four tuning element pulleys, then you will appreciate the comic from page 101. My most challenging dial cord adventure was on a Realistic Patrolman−50 portable radio. It was bought on eBay, and the dial cord broke shortly after I received it. Without a routing diagram, it took a bit of head scratching to get figure out the correct direction for wraps around dials and pulleys. The oscilloscope display on the page 59 comic is pretty funny. Enjoy.
