Hello Dave,

The June, 1963 issue of 73 Magazine has an ad by Tri-State Electronics, 
Inc., Falls Church, VA, advertising the Tri-X-500.  "Distributed in the
New York area by Two-Way Radio Communications, Staten Island, NY."  The
index to the June, 1964 issue of 73, states that the Tri-State last
advertised in June, 1963.
