Over and Out - Amateur Radio Comics
September 1969 Electronics Illustrated Article

September 1969 Electronics Illustrated

September 1969 Electronics Illustrated Cover - RF CafeTable of Contents

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Electronics Illustrated, published May 1958 - November 1972. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Found in what is the first issue of Electronics Illustrated magazine that I have bought are these Amateur radio related comics entitled, "Over and Out." The cartoonist's signature is simply "Rodrigues," which according to a Google search might be Charles Rodrigues (who also contributed to other tech magazines as well as to National Lampoon). I have to admit to needing to look up the "Yanqui aggressors" thing on the one comic, and then it made sense: Yanqui= Yankee. The last comic with the parrot is pretty funny; it's sort of the Ham radio equivalent to an auto-repeat telephone dialer like what you would use to call into a radio show during a listener contest.

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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
