Electronics-Themed Comics
February 1952 and January 1953 Radio & Television News

These two electronics-themed comics appeared in circa 1952-53 Radio & Television News magazine. For some reason the early 50s were a little comic challenged. I really like the one with the guy hanging from the antenna!

It's hard to make out the artists' names, but they have appeared on other comics of the era. If you enjoy comics like this, there is a growing list of other comics at the bottom of the page you can check out.

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.
