January 1945 Radio News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

This ad for Connecticut Telephone & Electric Division appeared in the January 1945 edition of Radio News. The company, as the name suggests, manufactured communications equipment, but as the name does not necessarily suggest, it also made radios and accessories. The Radio Museum website has a collection of photos and specifications about some of the equipment, such as the Vacuum Tube Detector Set Type DT-3 and Sodion DR6 single-tube receiver. Connecticut Telephone & Electric Division began operations at the dawn of the wireless communications age and produced a lot of materiel for the armed forces in World War II. Some of the vintage Connecticut Telephone & Electric Division components appear occasionally on eBay.

Connecticut Telephone & Electric Division Ad

Connecticut Telephone & Electric Division Advertisement, January 1945 Radio News - RF Cafe... Hardly had man learned to fly than he began to feel the urgency of the need to communicate between ground and plane.

Radio headsets are one of C. T. & E. Division's contributions to aviation communications in World War II.

One of the first successful attempts in such two-way contact was accomplished with equipment designed and manufactured by Connecticut Telephone & Electric.

Since the early days of the telephone, our people have been identified with progress in communications. Today the principles of communications have applications of the greatest importance to industry, in connection with product development and production control.

Our developmental engineers also have much to offer to industrial executives seeking to produce a better product at lower cost. If our engineering and production facilities might tie in with your plans, we shall be happy indeed to talk with you.

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

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...
