Goodline Transmission Lines
December 1954 Radio & Television News

December 1954 Radio & TV News
December 1954 Radio & Television News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

"What's in a name?" Juliet famously asked that question of Romeo's family name (Montague). Maybe a world created by a bard of tragedy a name makes no matter, but in the world of product marketing a name can subconsciously invoke a notion of familiarity and trust, cause a brand to be unforgettable, or simply provide a clear understanding of what the product is. In the case of Goodline Transmission Lines, for which this full-page ad appeared in a 1954 issue of Radio & Television News magazine, the "Good" part of Goodline happens to be the name of the company owner, Don Good. However, you can be sure he capitalized on the fortunate surname when branding his transmission lines. In looking at the ad you can tell that Don is quite adept at wordplay - including double entendre - and imagery for hawking his wares to the male audience that made up the vast majority of his audience.

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

1996 - 2024


Kirt Blattenberger,


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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
