Hammarlund Manufacturing Company

The Hammarlund Manufacturing Company was founded by Oscar Hammarlund in New York City, New York, United States in 1910.

Hammarlund legend:

"There are a number of false etymologies regarding why amateur radio operators are colloquially called hams. Likely an example of corporate wishful thinking, one such tale is that Hammarlund products were supposedly so pre-eminent in the pioneering era of radio that they became a part of the language of radio. As the story goes, early radio enthusiasts affectionately called Hammarlund products "Ham" products, and called themselves "Ham" operators. In truth, Hammarlund was a minor and barely known company at the time "ham" started to be used."
