Top Rated Transistor Radio Repair
Initial radios were bulky and impossible to carry around. During World War II vacuum tubes that made up the initial radios were trying to be resized. During the same time after the war ended the transistor was developed at Bell Labs, in 1947. Transistors completely transformed the face of radio. Transistors were smaller, they needed less energy. They were replacing a whole range of devices that worked with vacuum tubes. Initially transistors were used for military purposes but in the spring of 1954 everything changed. In the Christmas of 1954 the first transistor radio was brought to the shelves. It cost $50. It immediately transformed radio technology and soon became popular as more transistor radios were made at cheaper rates. Transistors work with a straightforward technology. The sounds recorded through the microphone are converted into an electric signal which is picked up by transistors and amplified into the speakers.
