If you like the radio-themed comics from vintage electronics magazines, then you'll appreciate the jackpot of them (5) in the July 1945 issue of Radio Craft magazine. Being the era in which it was published, many of the comics at the time had military-electronics themes as well. A lot of them are credited to subscribers providing ideas. One of my favorite features is "Radio Terms Illustrated," where readers write in with suggestions for how common lingo in the radio realm can have an alternate interpretation. Such is the case with "Wave Trap" in the first comic. I think Frank Beaven was the illustrator for all of them. Look in the big list of other technical-themed comics at the bottom of the page for others which include "Radio Terms Illustrated."

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...
