Oral History – Bob Mendelson





The following is a list of articles written about equipment built at home, and published in RCA HAM TIPS for the purpose of increasing RCA sales of tubes, Nuvistors, transistors, and integrated circuits in the Amateur Radio market. Most of these articles were re-published in Australia and Europe in several languages.


1.  “144-Megacycle Transmitter”, May, 1955.


2. “A Secondary Frequency Standard”, December, 1955.


3. “Nuvistor Two-Meter Converter”, May 1961.  The RCA ad on the back of Amateur Radio magazines was followed by more requests for copies of the article than any previous ad.


4. “New RCA-6DS4 Nuvistor Triode”, December, 1961.


5. “Nuvistor Two-Meter Transmitter”, Spring, 1962.


6. “Transistors and Nuvistors in a Two-Meter Transceiver”, Spring 1965.


7. “All-Transistor Two-Meter Converter”, Winter 1965-66.
