Comics with an Electronics Theme
May and July 1974 Popular Electronics

Here are a couple new-old tech-themed comics from vintage Popular Electronics magazines. Both have a Ham radio theme, so maybe you need to have been there to appreciate the scenario... or maybe not. It is possible that the presence of clothes pins on twin lead or ladder line could de-tune the line, and could crush the internal dielectric of a coaxial line. There is no metal on boxer shorts, but maybe the clothes pins are the type with a metal spring. For the other comic, you just need to know what ••• −−− ••• is to get it (see here for help). Enjoy!

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...
