February 1951 Radio-Electronics

February 1951 Radio-Electronics Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Electronics, published 1930-1988. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Sylvania Electric Products was born out of Hygrade Sylvania Corporation in 1942, and continued until 1959 when it merged with General Telephone to form General Telephone and Electronics (GTE). That puts this 1951 promotion in Radio−Electronics magazine smack dab in the middle of their existence. Sylvania, like most major electronics products companies of the era, made vacuum tubes, CRTs, incandescent lamps, radios, even proximity fuses for warheads during World War II. In the 1960s and 70s, Sylvania produced semiconductor components and computers. Brick-and-mortar stores, whose primary competitors were mail-order businesses back then, were typically replete with sales promotions like this one featured in Radio−Electronics. Sylvania is now part of the LEDVANCE brand, owned by Chinese lighting company MLS. Is there any real American anything left anymore? Here is the Archive.org page on Sylvania's history, and here is an interesting piece on founder Frank Poor (who wasn't so poor following the company's immense success).

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...
