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 Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

Have you had a rough week? If so - and even if not - take a few minutes to get a laugh from these electronics-themed comics from the pages of vintage Radio News magazines. Beginning sometime in the late 1930s and early 1940s, single-panel topical comics began appearing frequently in many hobby and even professional magazines. Sure, comics showed up in magazine before that time, but they generally did not necessarily have to do with the main subject of the publication. The Saturday Evening Post, for example, had many single-panel comics, but they were on any random theme. I can't go without commenting on the April 1946 comic since it reminds me of a situation while in tech school at Keesler AFB in Biloxi, Mississippi, in 1979. I can't recall exactly what the circuit was that the instructor was covering, but it involved tuning to achieve a waveform with a null in the center of two bandpass regions similar to this:  ∩∩ . He and everyone I worked with in the field after tech school referred to it as the "Dolly Parton waveform." Such a scenario would never pass muster with the overly sensitive politically environment of today. Being a big-time lover of comics (I read them daily in the newspaper), I am happy to take the trouble of scanning and posting these for RF Cafe readers.
