History:

Otto Sandel was a prominent radio experimenter using the call sign 2UW. The radio station went commercial on the 13th of February 1925. He also repaired and manufactured radio receivers. In 1926 he moved the 2UW transmitter to the T &G building in Elizabeth Street, Sydney which had a showroom to display his radio products. He set up Sandel Radio Ltd. to sell his radios in December 1926. Sandel Radio Ltd was liquidated in November 1927 [1] and 2UW was sold by auction in July 1928.[2]

Otto Sandel Ltd. was registered in April 1935 with first Directors Otto and Jack Sandel. [3]

Advertising for employees indicated they operated a factory at 101 William Street, Sydney.[4]

The company went into voluntary liquidation around November 1936 when some of its stock was sold to David Jones Ltd. and the remainder by Otto under his name.[5]

David Jones Ltd. advertised that they had purchased the entire stock of Otto Sandel Ltd. and was selling Sandel radios at half price.[6] This caused a financial problem for  Otto as David Jones had only purchased a part of the stock and Otto could no longer sell his portion at a reasonable price.

He then claimed damages from David Jones for alleging false and malicious publication in an advertisement.[7]

On May 20, 1938 the Jury in the Supreme Court failed to reach an agreement after 12 hours of deliberation and his claim was lost.[8]

Otto then retired to his own radio repair shop and ham station in Sydney.[9]
