August 1947 QST  Cover - RF CafeTable of Contents

These articles are scanned and OCRed from old editions of the ARRL's QST magazine. Here is a list of the QST articles I have already posted. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Radio Shack, like so many of America's original great companies, was born and lived long and prospered during its glory days, then eventually waned into insignificance and obsolescence within the last decade or so. It is not always simply an unwillingness to adapt to new technologies and methods that dooms them. The forces behind those life cycles are often beyond their control because start-ups vying for market share do not carry the burden of and have to deal with established investments in people, facilities, and infrastructure. This advertisement from a 1942 issue of QST magazine was from the original Radio Shack in Boston, Massachusetts. The company was bought by Tandy Corporation in the 1960s, then sold to hedge fund operator General Wireless in the mid 2000s. Radio Shack filed for bankruptcy last year and the few remaining outlets are now run by Sprint.
