January 1948 Radio Craft Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Craft, published 1929 - 1953. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

At the end of World War II, the United States government demonstrated an appreciation for the extreme sacrifices made by its citizens by making surplus materiel available for purchase at very low cost. Companies sprang up as distributors after bidding on and buying large lots of items at auctions. Herschel Radio Company was one of many. This 2-page advertisement on a 1948 issue of Radio-Craft is typical of what was seen in all sorts of technology publications in the late 1940s. A complete Fairchild model SCR 269/F airborne radio compass was offered at a mere $75 ($814 in today's money). A Hallicrafters model SX-28 communications receiver could be picked up for $129. Miscellaneous components sold for pennies - resistors, capacitors, inductors, transformers, vacuum tubes, indicator lamps, wire, switches, hardware, tools, enclosures, motors, relays, fans, antennas, and just about every other type of part available at the time. Some of the equipment and parts can still be found on eBay.
