Electronics-Themed Comics
June 1940 QST

June 1940 QST

 - RF CafeTable of Contents

These articles are scanned and OCRed from old editions of the ARRL's QST magazine. Here is a list of the QST articles I have already posted. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Phil Glidersleeve 'Gil' Book from ARRL - RF CafeTake a break from the workaday doldrums and enjoy a few vintage Ham-themed comics. Artist Phil Glidersleeve (aka "Gil"), W1CJD, created hundreds - if not thousands - of such comics for QST and other technical magazines during his multi-decade career. These appeared in the June 1940 issue. Most of these particular comics accompanied monthly columns and have a theme related to something within the text. However, I did not feel like processing all the text of those columns since it is not necessary to enjoy the humor depicted in the comics.

About RF Cafe

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...
