Transistor Radio
TI number: Z00139

This radio was introduced in mid 1958 @ $29.95. It represented the first major sale of a TI reflex 4 germanium transistor kit.

The advantage of the reflex transistor kit was that it permitted the production of a small portable radio with longer battery life. For a TI news item on this radio and kit, see the Artifact Historical File.
