Electronics-Themed Comics
November & December 1965 Electronics World

November 1965 Electronics World

November 1965 Electronics World Cover - RF Cafe  Table of Contents

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Electronics World, published May 1959 - December 1971. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

These couple tech-themed comics appeared in the November and December issues of Electronics World magazine - one apiece. The November comic presents what would have been considered a futuristic mega-size television that required technology nowhere near reality at the time. The only type of display available then was a cathode ray tube (CRT), which would require a cabinet many times deeper than the one shown to accommodate. Maybe artist G. Lyons foresaw plasma, LCD, or LED flat screen displays - but I doubt it. The salesman's comment is somewhat prescient in that an Internet search will find many examples of larger vintage TV cabinets which have been modified to serve as pet houses, bookcases, liquor cabinets, etc. The other comic is a pun on the overly-enthusiastic antennas home-bewer.

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...
