Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Popular Electronics, published October 1954 - April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

1970 just doesn't seem all that long ago, buy holy moly that was going on half a century! This quiz appeared in Popular Electronics to test the hobbyist's knowledge of the whereabouts of some of the major components and products companies. Many of the businesses have gone defunct, been bought and absorbed by other companies, or if they do still exist, are in new locations. It will take a real old-timer to score well on this quiz without resorting to lucky guesses. Still, there are a couple stalwart manufacturers today that even a newcomer can get right. Good luck.

Electronics Geography Quiz

By Thomas Haskett

Electronic Geography Quiz, April 1970, Popular Electronics - RFCafeAnyone who works, studies, or experiments in the field of electronics will sooner or later associate certain cities with well-known electronics manufacturing facilities. For instance, what electronics manufacturer do you think of when Harrison, N.J. is mentioned? RCA Electronic Devices, of course. While there may be other smaller companies there, chances are you thought of the one most well-known.

This little quiz is divided into three parts: Easy, Difficult, and Very Difficult. Even a duffer should be able to get 9 or 10 of the Easy ones. If you do that well on the Difficult, you're pretty well-informed about locations: and if you get 10 or more in the third category, you're an expert on Electronics Geography. See how well you can do - and no fair peeking at the advertisement in this magazine. Match the cities on the left with the companies on the right. Note that for some cities, a group of manufacturers is listed.

Popular Electronics published many quizzes over the years - some really simple and others not so simple. Robert Balin created many of the quizzes. This is a listing of all I have posted thus far.

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 Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
