PREPARED BY: Estera Cerar, Boris Brovinsky, Slovenian Technical Museum

Two exhibits will be on display, which, in the 1970s and 1980s, were a significant feature of our daily lives. The Pony folding bike, which was launched in 1965 by the Rog factory in Ljubljana, was a selling hit and one of the most popular bikes in general. The Tomos moped APN 4, colloquially known as the “number four”, was very popular among young people, and  was also suitable for hilly areas due to its powerful engine. It was also used by postmen and policemen.

MORE THAN SEVEN DECADES OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS IN SLOVENIA
nostalgia

Telephones that marked the history of telecommunications development in Slovenia

PREPARED BY: Iskratel

Telephones were among the first Iskra products. Their regular production began in 1948 with an inductor for the needs of the Yugoslav railways and state institutions. It was the first ITV1-branded telephone to be based on a Siemens inductor phone. The first widely available rotary dial phone was the ATA1. The design of this telephone was already developed at the Rade Končar factory in Zagreb, but this phone was also basically a version of the Siemens one. The beginnings of production of this telephone go back to 1949, but regular production began in 1950 after some initial problems. This was followed by the ATA 11 telephone, which was launched in 1956. It was technically refined by the home developers, compared to its predecessor, but the design was still modelled after a foreign manufacturer, namely the Swiss Albis. The ATA11 was an extremely popular telephone, reaching an annual production of 35,000 in the early 1960s. The general rise in the prominence of electronic devices has led to a new generation of appliances that have supported new functionalities and have been an important final component of new electronic systems. This period was marked by the successful production and sale of their own ATA series products (automatic desktop telephones) and the development of a new ETA line (electronic telephones).

An important part of Iskra Telematics at that time was the work organization Telephone Elements and Appliances (TEA). Within this organization, three program areas existed: element production, production of mechanical components and parts (MKD) and telephones. All three areas have had a significant impact on the overall process in the production of telecommunications equipment. The development and production of telephones were most recognizable mainly because of the extremely successful ETA 80 product that was the hallmark of its era.

Photo: The ATA1 automatic telephone was the first Iskra telephone intended for widespread use. Regular production began in 1950. The legendary ETA80 handset is one of the most recognizable products from the Iskra family. Regular production began in 1980 and in the following years new functionally upgraded versions followed, including a system phone for use in private telephone networks.
