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 Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

Commercially available radio receivers for the home had only been around for a couple decades when this advertisement from Crosley appeared. I keep looking in old electronics magazines for an ad featuring my 1941 Crosley model 03CB console radio, but thus far with no luck. What makes it special is that it was probably one of the last new radios sold prior to the shift of material usage to military equipment in World War II.
Superlative performance at the lowest possible price! This requirement is uppermost in the minds of those who today are contemplating the purchase of radio receivers. And so in accordance with the Crosley policy of providing what the public will buy, Crosley has set about to meet this demand.
The low Crosley prices attract prospects to your store.
In doing so, Crosley engineers and technicians have left nothing undone to give you, the radio dealer, and in turn, your customers, the greatest and most sensational values that have ever been offered in the radio industry. Consequently, Crosley radio receivers are in demand today. And they are priced so that the radio dealer can operate at a profit - Today.
Today's "buyers' market" has put its stamp of approval on the amazing Crosley models. It has professed its satisfaction in terms of greater sales. So perfectly does Crosley reflect the needs, requirements and taste of the radio-buying public that no dealer can afford not to handle Crosley.
