About RF Cafe

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...

What better way to wind down a week than to get a chuckle out of some electronics-themed comics from vintage magazines?!?! These three came from WWII-era editions of Radio News. The humor of the depicted scenarios might be lost on people who were not in the workforce back in 1970s and earlier when workplace and supply chain conditions were much different than they are today. Therefore - not to be insulting - I'll give a little insight. Back in the days before online ordering of just about anything the entire world has to offer, service shops and even design centers relied heavily on sales representatives to procure parts. That is the gist of the p53 comic. The p56 comic alludes to when something as harmless as listening to a radio at your workbench was not permitted. Nowadays, of course, you can sit at your workstation with a Bluetooth ear bud and privately listen to anything you want being broadcast from the smartphone in your pocket. The p64 comic is timeless and needs no explanation ;-)
