The Brands of Vintage Radios

On this page you will see lists of the brand names of radios made during the valve era. Whilst this website deals mainly with the Australian industry, I have placed the brands I know about from not only Australia but also Great Britain, Germany, New Zealand, Canada and the United States of America for informational purposes.

Please note that company names that appear more than once are not necessarily linked to each other. Nor are all companies listed. In the case of Europe and the United States there were simply so many manufacturers that it isn't possible to list them all here. In other cases in all lists, there many also be companies that I am not yet aware of. The companies listed below were either radio manufacturers, manufacturers of radio parts or both.

As said, these lists are currently unfinished and will certainly be added to in due course so be sure to re-visit.
