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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Electronics-Themed Comics, April 1941
April 1941 Radio News Article

April 1941 Radio News
April 1941 Radio News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

There's no denying that 2020 has been one of the worst years in a long time. The Wuhan Virus is responsible for more deaths in America than the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and has crippled nearly the entire world medically, psychologically, and financially. Overzealous government officials have gotten away with imposing restrictions on personal freedoms beyond anyone's imaginations. With few exceptions, we all are required to wear facemasks that are practically useless in public, and are forced to isolate from our fellow human beings with the threat of fines and imprisonment for non-compliance. Self-appointed busybodies have appeared to tongue-lash anyone not fitting their idea of a fully state-compliant citizen. Although it will not erase the darker moments of 2020, hopefully this handful of electronics-themed comics from a 1941 issue of Radio News magazine will help take the edge off. Here's hoping 2021 will be a better year!
