Electronics-Themed Comics
February 1951 & February 1952 Radio-Electronics

These two electronics-themed comics appeared in the February 1951 and 1952 issues of Radio−Electronics magazine. For some reason there were not as many comics in that era. At the time, the world was very obsessed with wireless entertainment so it was the subject of many memes in print, talk, and video. Predating cable media, the often constant battle in trying to get good reception on radio and/or television was a very popular theme. Also predating a time when there was a TV in every room in the house, the possibility of a single set being able to satisfy the desired of multiple viewers simultaneously was also commonplace topic. The comic artists of the day could never imagine that seven decades later almost every person on Earth would be walking around with a high definition TV set in his/her pocket - and that many don't even think about it (the smartphone) being "wireless" because they have never had a "wired" device.

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...
