Founded in the mid 1970s by two Ham Radio entrepreneurs as "Advanced Electronic Applications" they designed and manufactured creative, advanced equipment and antennas for the amateur radio market. Thoughout the 1980s and 1990s it was a respected leader in this market. In the 1990s AEA underwent a change in name to "AEA Wireless, Inc." and a change in ownership moving from Lynnwood, WA, to Southern CA. In 2001, AEA Wireless was purchased by the current owner, CEO, and President, George Naber.
George redirected the company away from the fading Ham market to concentrate on the commercial RF and cable testing markets.The new AEA, now "AEA Technology, Inc." still supports a loyal Ham following, but is quickly being recognized for providing high-quality, rugged, portable RF and cable testing solutions in commercial and military grade of products.
