The R.L. Drake company was founded in 1943 by Robert L. Drake, a young engineer with a significant background in radio design for major industry concerns. The company began as a manufacturer of low pass and high pass filters for the government and amateur radio market.

After World War II, the company applied its engineering expertise to the consumer market and started producing amateur or "ham" radio transmitters and receivers.

Today, Drake no longer manufacture ham radio products.
