General Electric 2N1086  
Written by Accutron on 2018-02-14  

Introduced around 1958, the General Electric 2N1086 is a 65mW germanium NPN grown junction transistor designed for use as an oscillator in AM radio receivers. The 2N1086 was intended to replace the earlier 2N168A, and was used in a number of early transistor radios. This device uses the same style of elliptical metal canister as Western Electric's early NPN grown junction transistors.
