Communications-Themed Comics

November 1957 Radio-Electronics

November 1957 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.

In 1957, when these communications-themed comics appeared in Radio−Electronics magazine, home-based entertainment electronics was a big deal. Installing a major media setup with a stereo system and/or a television served to prove your technical prowess and hopefully set you up as the neighborhood expert. That fad continued for a few decades, but by now even the most sophisticated equipment is self-configuring and requires little more effort for success than setting it where you want it in the room. Artificial intelligent (AI) uses Bluetooth and WiFi to evaluate the surroundings and adjust accordingly. Your typical Walmart system might not have that capability, but if you're shopping at Walmart for your media gear, you're not really qualifying your setup as high end. These comics do a pretty good job of conveying the mood of the era.

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...
