Comics with an Electronics Theme
May 1972 and July 1972 Popular Electronics

Here are a couple more electronics-themed comics from vintage Popular Electronics magazines. Only one comic appeared in each of the May 1962 and April 1974 issues, so I combined them onto a single page. The comic from 1962 has a message I had not considered before about otherwise unassociated businesses horning in on a traditional business' purview, in this case drug stores selling replacement vacuum tubes, thereby robbing sales from the electronics repair shops. Regarding the other comic, consider if the roles were reversed and the husband was about to beat the wife with a club. Would that be considered funny? Personally, I take it in the manner of good humor intended, but way too many people are way too easily offended.

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...
