Electronics-Themed Comics
September and November 1949 Radio-Electronics

Let us finish off the year 2021 with some humor; goodness knows we need it after yet another 365 days of what has been awfully close to a worldwide COVIDictatorship. "15 Days to Slow the Spread" back in early spring of 2020 mutated like a coronavirus into unlimited variants of government mandates restricting or destroying freedom of movement, freedom of association, freedom of personal health choice, freedom of comfort, and numerous other freedoms. These electronics-related comics appeared in a couple 1949 issues of Radio−Electronics magazine. Enjoy (if you still can). I do wonder why the octopus only does the work of three servicemen when he has four times the number of arms?

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...
