Radionette Norway was a radio factory and also a radio brand. The company was founded in 1927 as the Jan Wessel Radio Factory.

The Company was the first in Norway to start production of mains powered radios. Previously radios had always been battery operated. Demand was so great the factory had to be extended.The most succesful model was the Kurer (Courier), 224000 models of which were made between 1950 and 1958. In 1968, a new production facility was made ready.

In 1972, the company ran into financial difficulties and merged with Tandberg who in turn went bankrupt in 1978.
