Talking Electronics - Colin Mitchell
The thrust of the course is for you to be able to design your own circuits and eventually move into the wonderful world of electronics as a career.
"There are many different types of power supplies, including batteries, plug packs, switch-mode supplies and a basic transformer and bridge"
The Power Supply - Basic Electronics
"However the simplest power supply consist of a transformer, one or more diodes and a large filter capacitor (electrolytic)."

Some things you can find there -CB & Ham radios, Walkie-talkie (GMRS/FRS) radios and Shortwave & multiband radios
The company was started as Radio Shack in 1921 in Boston, Massachusetts, by two brothers, Theodore and Milton Deutschmann, who wanted to provide equipment for the cutting-edge field of amateur, or ham radio.
Theodore and Milton Deutschmann opened a one-store retail and mail-order operation in the heart of downtown Boston. They chose the name, "Radio Shack," which was a term for the small, wooden structure that housed a ship's radio equipment. The Deutschmanns thought the name was appropriate for a store that would supply the needs of radio officers aboard ships, as well as "ham" radio operators.
