Electronics-Themed Comics

March 1954 Radio-Electronics

March 1954 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.

The March 1954 issue of Radio−Electronics magazine provided five electronics-themed comics for readers to enjoy. Thanks to a certain individual who has posted hundreds of these vintage comics, you are able to also able to benefit from them. The themes are a bit dated and might not be familiar to those of you not familiar with the issues of concern to people of the era. Television was a fairly new technology for most households, and there was a mixture of joy and frustration by owners because while they were thrilled with being able to watch TV, signal reception and equipment reliability could be a real headache. Just as with today's rapid advance in electronics technology, the pace of new and wonderful products being introduced to the market was impressive, although many ideas were too far ahead of reality to facilitate a successful market introduction - like for instance the video-phone featured in the comic on page 106. Stereo sound was another high-end feature addressed in the page 104 comic. I won't even comment on the nudist colony comic...

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...
