RCA Cunningham Radiotron Ad
July 1934 Radio News and the Short-Wave Article
you seen the new national advertising campaign where Freescale (formerly Motorola) is using big name celebrities to sell
their cellular base station power transistors?
Kutcher are up on a tower along with man-and-woman-on-the-tower smartphone users discussing how much better
their phones work now that the service provider switched to base transceiver stations (BTSs) that use Freescale LDMOS
RF power transistors. Of course you haven't seen the ad because it would never be produced and marketed. The very
concept is ridiculous, you might say... unless you happened to see advertisements like this one for RCA's Radiotron
vacuum tubes from the 1930s. In it, none other than Bing Crosby was joined by a trendily dressed woman who was rejoicing
in her decision to buy a new radio that contained those newfangled "Micro-Sensitive" receiver tubes. Now, raise
your hand if you would like to see an advertisement
with Scarlett Johansson and/or Ashton Kutcher on top of a cell tower.
