Here is a little electronics
hobbyist humor in the form a comic series titled "Hobnobbing
with Harbaugh," compliments of Popular Electronics. For the non-Ham, QSL
is the Q-code for "'I confirm that I received your transmission." You don't need to be
an amateur radio operator to appreciate these comic strips, though. Note that with it
being 1963, the husband and wife are shown sleeping in separate beds - just like in the
TV shows of the era like The Dick Van Dyke Show and
I Love Lucy.
