February 1968 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.

Three more electronics-themed comics for you here, compliments of the February 1968 issue of Radio-Electronics magazine. Television humor was a big thing in the era, especially regarding servicing and sales. It is the classic struggle between the customer always being right, and the business proprietor needing to protect his turf and earn a living. Long gone from the memory of most people my age (65) and never experienced by most people born after about 1990 is a time when in-home visits by electronic equipment repairmen, insurance company representatives, doctors, and other professional practitioners was still common. With the advent of online sales websites, interfacing with human salesmen of any sort is rare. Even store checkout cashiers are disappearing as self-service checkout machines replace humans. Recently, news of the first fully automated McDonalds broke, where no human interaction is had from ordering to delivery of food.

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...
