Fi-Cord

Early Fi-Cord models were manufactured by Advance Electronics.

Fi-Cord was also a joint British distributor of the Anita hand-held range. After Rockwell closed down its British ANITA operation around 1976 Fi-Cord continued to distribute ANITA models after manufacture was transferred to Yugoslavia.
