Electronics-Themed Comics
March 1956 Radio-Electronics

March 1956 Radio-Electronics

March 1956 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.

This set of six electronics-themed comics appeared in the March 1956 issue of Radio-Electronics magazine. The one on page 84 is pretty clever, but would need to be modernized in our semiconductor era. I'm not quite getting the page 114 comic. Computer dating is a fairly recent phenomenon - or is it? The page 142 comic suggest otherwise. In fact, I know three married couples who met via an online dating service, all within the last ten years; my daughter is one of them! The shopper in the page 145 comic might have misinterpreted the gist of the signs, but taken literally maybe her assumption isn't so unreasonable. The page 148 comic shows how a "futuristic" concept proposed in the middle of the last century has not only been realized by 2022, but has evolved much farther than imagined.

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    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...
