We're about due for another round of electronics-themed comics, this time from a circa 1948 Radio-Craft magazine. The post World War II era in America experienced a surge in consumerism after half a decade of intense war that required major sacrifices on the parts of both servicemen and civilians. Factories previously built and run for the manufacturing of household items, automobiles, clothing, and other items had been converted to support production of implements of war. Massive efforts across the nation were carried out to collect all forms of metal, fabric, plastic, rubber, electrical and electronic components, engine parts, and other such things that could be repurposed or used directly in the effort. Once the world was finally safe from imminent overrun by Imperialist, Socialist, and Communist regimes, not much time was required to shift back into pre-war production mode. In fact, once the end was fairly apparent by the closing months of 1944, magazines were full of advertisements promising wonderful new consumer goods that would include improvements gleaned from wartime developments. Wireless communications - both radio and television - were high on the list of desires by most households. Comics such as these three exemplify those commonly found in magazines directed to readers interested electronics, mechanics, automobiles, sports, and other recreational endeavors.

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    Kirt Blattenberger,


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...
