NY radio makers?
How may I find the name of companies making Broadcast radios in New York State during the time from 1930 to 1932?

I don't have anything specifically for the period 1930-1932, but I do have a 1944 Sylvania Tube Complement Manual which lists the following receiver manufacturers in the State of NY in 1944:

This list includes New York State only. Many others just across the border, such as RCA Mfg. Co. at Camden, NJ.
It is impossible to say just how many of the above actually manufactured their own receivers, and how many were buying either full or partially-assembled sets from others.
As mentioned, this list is from 1944. Most likely a list from 1930-1932 would be much longer, as many companies folded during the Depression.
The only State even remotely approaching New York in number of radio manufacturers was Illinois, and those were almost all either in or near Chicago.

NY radio companies
Thank you for the very helpful info.
Now I have to find a 1931 New York mfg. 7-tube radio whose antenna enters via a 235 whose grid and plate are grounded...with the ant signal going to that 235 cathode....closest I've found is a Delco...but that's not NY.
