The 275+ pages on this site display transistor radios made between 1954 and 1968,
as well as some of their pocket crystal radio and subminiature tube radio ancestors.
Included here are some early transistor radios from Western Europe not often found
on transistor radio web sites, as well as transistor radios from the former USSR and
East Bloc countries manufactured between 1959 and 1968. The transistor radio was
the first popular mass-production consumer product to make use of the transistor, a
device arguably considered to be the most significant invention of the 20th century.
