Amphenol has been around since
1932, when founder Arthur Schmitt offered sockets for vacuum tubes, just 12 years
before this ad appeared in Radio News magazine. Now headquartered in Wallingford,
CT, the company began life in Chicago, Illinois. Amphenol was a major supplier of
coaxial cable in the days when most of the cable Americans used was produced in
the country. Alpha Wire,
Cable (now part of General Cable), and
General Cable are the names that come to mind that were around
in the 1970s when I entered the radio-electronics realm. The radar system I worked
on in the USAF, and all of the defense electronics electronics systems I worked
on as a technician and engineer, used those four brands. Today, of course, there
is a seemingly unlimited number of coaxial cable suppliers, many of which produce
sub-standard products that do not hold up under even typical operational environments.
Amphenol Offers Widest Selection
of Approved R-G Cables
Amphenol's government approved "Coax" and "Twinax" R-G Cables today represent
the maximum in types available from a single manufacturer - a definite advantage.
There is usually a size for every normal requirement. But "special" needs too are
promptly met. They embody the same widely experienced engineering, high quality
materials and dependable production that have made Amphenol products famous the
world over. And you can have immediate delivery on most Amphenol Cable types. So
depend on Amphenol for any high frequency cable requirements. Catalog Section D
brings you detailed technical data and helpful illustrations.
