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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

December 1955 Radio-Electronics Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Electronics, published 1930-1988. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

We hit the electronics-themed comics mother lode with the December 1955 issue of Radio-Electronics magazine. Maybe it was considered a Christmas present for the readers (those like me who appreciate such features). Eight; count 'em; eight. Some months have none at all. I was so appreciative that I went to the trouble to add color (all were originally B&W). Even nearly seven decades hence, you can still appreciate the humor as you remember that in the days vacuum tube equipment there was a lot of self-service and in-home service being done, causing plenty of comical (to those not affected) scenarios to ensue.
