Verdens første kommercielt tilgængelige transistorradio; Regency TR-1. Kunne kun modtage mellembølgebåndet. Bemærk de små (her røde) trekanter (CD [civil defense] mærker). Trekanterne viste hvor man skulle lytte i tilfælde af atomkrig.[1]

Den første kommercielt tilgængelige transistorradio blev præsenteret 18. oktober 1954 af Regency Division of Industrial Development Engineering Associates of Indianapolis, Indiana.[2] Den hed Regency TR-1 og blev sat til salg november 1954 hvor den kostede US$ 49,95 (svarende til US$ 361 i 2005), og blev solgt i omkring 100.000 enheder.[1][3] Regency TR-1 var en ægte superheterodynmodtager med god følsomhed og uden ekstern antenne med 4 transistorer.[4]

DALLAS (October 18, 1954) - TI's part in the production of the first commercial transistorized radio receiver will be announced beginning today in newspapers throughout the country. The "pocket size" radio has four TI transistors. It also uses a TI subminiature output transformer...The receiver is being assembled and marketed by the Regency Division of Industrial Development Engineering Associates, Inc., Indianapolis. It will be available this week to the public through sales outlets in Los Angeles and New York City...TIers can justly be proud of being the first to produce a high-gain transistor at a cost permitting its application to the high-volume commercial market..."
