Electronics-Themed Comics
July 1948 Radio News

July 1948 Radio News

July 1948 Radio & Television 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 is a batch of electronics-themed comics that appeared in the July 1948 edition of Radio News magazine. The comic on page 122 would probably elicit cries of racism or hate speech these days, even though there is nothing racist about it. Note how prescient the comic on page 140 was. It shows how long futurists have ben contemplating the technologies that have become or are becoming common place today - of course many of them were promised to us by the end of the last century by the like of Popular Mechanics, Mechanix Illustrated, et al. The one that appeared on page 175 is pretty clever. Such a malady is rarely encountered with today's radios, but back in the day it was a commonly occurring problem. There is an ever-growing list of other comics at the bottom of the page.

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...
