The General Electric Company was active in the mobile radio industry for more than 60 years. With the help of many GE veterans this site records some of the history of this GE business up to the late 1980s when Ericsson came in. Equipment families, facilities and people are covered - the major product lines and facilities information being of more general interest, and people content being more for ex-GErs or their survivors. Detailed technical information (i.e. service manuals, schematics etc.) are not covered; there are other sites for that.

Please contact me about any information that you have on GE events: product introductions - major contracts - changes at the upper manager level - telephone books - production dates - product literature and advertisements and more are appropriate for this site. Contributors will be credited unless they request anonymity.
