For this book and other work, I am seeking information about Narda Ultrasonics Corporation, a firm which pioneered high-intensity application of ultrasonic energy ca. 1946-1960, and was presumably subsumed into Narda Microwave Corporation, which was bought out by the Loral Corporation, which, in turn, was acquired by Lockheed Martin Corporation

Major Restructuring of this Home Page - 29 Aug 99

(and restyling 20 Jul 03 courtesy of my daughter - thank you!)

[In addition, the directory structure of berliner-ultrasonics.org became corrupted ca. mid-2011 and has been cleaned and appears to be working correctly as of 22 Nov 2011.]   new (22 Nov 2011)

All references to personal and hobby matters
have been moved to a separate index page, Home Page 2.

There is also a Semi-Alphabetical Index, et seq.
(formerly at the end of this page and now moved to a separate page
after the page list topped 100+!
[The page count is now on the Semi-Alphabetical Index Page
has topped 456 (as of 11 Dec 2008), and will probably keep growing!]

In addition, a site with a private domain name now exists at:
sbiii.com
as of 12 Oct 2000; linking will maintain continuity.

[Please note that over the many years since this site was begun (30 May 1996),
I have abandoned the formal academic usage of "the author" and "your Webmaster"
in favor of the more informal first person singular "I" and "me".]


I try to keep these many pages up to date by adding and removing new.gif and rev.gif icons on a timely basis; please bear with me if I miss a few here and there. - SB,III

[However, I shall not accept responsibility for any inconvenience due to my faulty use of such icons nor reader's misinterpretation of same.]

I should point out that I only change the date(s) on the affected page(s), not also on this home page (except when a change is made to this page).


PERSONAL and HOBBY INTERESTS:
  COURTESY HOME PAGES.
  HOBBIES and SPECIAL INTERESTS
  PERSONAL.
  plus a Computer Page,
    with credits (helpful sites), references, tips, queries, etc.

[NOTE - there is also a Semi-Alphabetical Index, previously at the end of this page
and now on a separate page of its own.]
