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...

January 1940 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.

Here are a couple more electronics-themed comics from a 1940-era issue of Radio News magazine. The scenarios depicted in these old comics are often based on the real-life experiences of radio and electronics servicemen. No doubt many guys got clobbered by high voltage or deafening audio when a customer decided to power up a television or radio while being worked on in the home. When this comic with the police car radio appeared in 1940, it had only been a decade since the first 2-way radios were being installed in patrol cars (see "A New Arm of the Law"). A huge list of technology-themed comics is listed at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
