Electronics-Themed Comics
February 1953 Radio Electronics Article

February 1953 Radio-Electronics

February 1953 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.

These three electronics-themed comics appeared in the February 1953 issue of Radio-Electronics magazine. The first one showing the television repairman employing contortionist technique in order to tweak the picture is pretty good. I have seen an advertisement in one of these magazines offering a deflection coil alignment signal generator box that had a mirror mounted inside the cover specifically for doing the job that tech is doing in the comic. Another comic no doubt hit home with in-home servicemen of the day; at least the owner was honest. The other plays off a brand of humor common in the day that demonstrated the public's fascination with all the newfangled technology showing up every day.

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...
