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...

June 1949 Radio & TV News

June 1949 Radio & TV 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.

The June 1949 issue of Radio & Television News had four television-themed comics. Television at that time was a relatively new home appliance, so there was a huge amount of interest in the technology. It hadn't really been all that long since the public got used to hearing sound (i.e., 'talkies') in the movie theater, so the mystique that surrounded television made it the subject of a lot of puns and jokes. 1949 was a mere four years after the end of World War II, and the post-war economic boom was primed by a surplus of left-over electronic components along with lots of available talent both in the areas of design and assembly. There is a growing list of other comics at the bottom of the page.
