Electronics-Themed Comics

April 1947 Radio News

April 1947 Radio & Television News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

What better way is there to begin another week of long hours, marginally useful meetings, unpredictable customers, nagging design and/or production issues, and, hopefully, even a success or two, than to see a couple electronics-themed comics from a mid-last-century magazine? These appeared in a 1947 edition of Radio & Television News. Seeing a comic panel in any modern technical magazine these days is rare, if for no other reason than a fear amongst publishers (and their lawyers) that somebody, somewhere might be offended. BTW, these comics make good fodder for the front page of your technical presentations - a good way to soften the edge going into a meeting, especially if you are not good at delivering jokes. Once again, I took the liberty of colorizing them.

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...
