This marking was still used on car radios up into the 1960's.

Can anyone else enlighten us more here?

This link gives some information. Every radio when I was growing up had the little white triangles, and I remember lots of public service ads on radio, tv, and in print reminding us to tune to 640 or 1240 in the event of an attack.
