time it was not possible to foresee to the necessary degree the stringent shortages of material and rapidly rising prices of parts and labor. These factors have necessarily slowed the process of getting redesigns and new designs into production.
Just two years ago*, we listed some of the new General Radio products that peacetime conditions would bring. A review of the succeeding twenty-three numbers of the Experimenter shows that we have not fallen far short of our goal. Seventeen new instruments have been announced, as well as three redesigns of older types. A complete list follows.
