Name: Dynatron Radio Ltd., Maidenhead, Berkshire    (GB)  
Abbreviation: dynatron
Products: Model types Others

Manufacturer of high quality radiograms, televisions and radios.

Dynatron was a trading name of H Hacker and Sons in 1935. 

Production: 1927 - 1981

Closely associated with Hacker in the earlier years and then with Roberts. Some similarities in radios from all three companies.

The firm started trading in 1927 and operated independently until being bought by Ekco in 1955. In 1960 Ekco merged with Pye, and then Pye was bought by Philips in 1967. During this time, Dynatron was moved from Maidenhead to King's Lynn. In 1981, Philips sold Dynatron to Roberts Radio.

Although the early development was done by Murphy, it is understood that Dynatron did the production of some Rebecca radar equipment. This is mentioned in Chapter 22 of the IEE's "Radar Development to 1945". Dynatron also made Gee equipment as well as Cossor.

This manufacturer was suggested by William J Blanchflower.
