Historical Background

 

 In late 1956, General Electric (GE) introduced the famous NPN 2N170 hobbyist/experimenter   transistor. This device, which was manufactured using the unique “rate-grown” process developed at GE, allowed performance at much higher frequencies than the previously announced PNP audio 2N107 hobbyist transistor.  Here is how GE advertised the 2N170: “GE, by providing this first low cost RF high frequency NPN, has opened up many new areas of venture for the do-it-yourself addict.”  If you built a radio in the late 1950s, you probably used a 2N170!!

 

 

              

Your 2N170 Transistor Order Will be Supplied in the Storage/Display Envelope Shown Above, which Includes an Insert with Historical Description and a Schematic.
