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

Around since 1934, Newark Electric is one of the longest-surviving electronic component mail order businesses. In the days before Digi−Key (founded in 1972), Newark was my go-to source for parts I needed ASAP. Allied Electronics (earlier Allied Radio), around since 1928, was my second choice. There was no Internet, so the fastest service was had by calling in your order - while paying a long-distance toll. U.S. Post Office and United Postal Service (UPS, since 1907; my Uncle Brian drove their trucks from Buffalo to/from Cleveland for 40 years) were the two prime delivery service of the era (FedEx came online in 1973). Reportedly, its first paper-format catalog was mailed out in 1948, two years after this full-page ad appeared in Radio−Craft magazine. Newark now goes by the name of Newark element14 (the 14th element in the periodic table happens to be silicon). The "About Us" webpage (on the farnell.com website) shows Newark and Newark element14 (in Asia) as being Avnet companies. In 1946 there were many hometown electronics parts outlets that included repair shops, hardware stores, and department stores, so much of what a person needed was available locally.

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    Kirt Blattenberger,


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...
