PostSubject: New member intro..   New Members Please introduce yourself. Icon_minitimeJuly 19th 2011, 11:05 am

Hi folks,
I'm David, I live in Canberra, Down Under, and confess a love of valve gear.
Specifically guitar amps, and have joined the site to further my slowly growing knowledge..
I'm also on a steep learning curve for valve testers - just gained a Jackson 637 and am trying to learn about it and am planning to service it B4 testing my growing collection of valves..
I don't know a whole lot about radio's per se, but pls don't hold that against me..LOL
I'll chime in probably infrequently, but have bookmarked the site and will call back regularly.
Cheers, David

I'm back, Cliff. I had to get a new password. The forum refused my other one.
I have been very busy. Continuing my war on termites in my house, I had to remove no less that 900 records from my main book case in perparation for my bug main to do a major treatment on them, and, other things. Had house treated a month ago.
Work never ends.

The Amp Man is my user name and the reason is that I'm a Amplifier/guitar repair man for a music store on the Oregon coast. I'm 55 years of age and I've been a service tech for 30 plus years. First time on the forum and I might say a very nice one at that. I really appreciate the great info and tips and I too love to work on the old radios and at the moment I've been working on a old zenith console radio, I think 1928 or 29 not for sure. It belong to my wife's folks and so I've been restoring it in my spare time.

Thank you for allowing me to post and have a great evening...

Well Welcome to you!

I have been in the Tillamook area on a couple of occasions and have been delighted at our trips there. How did you find our forum, may I ask?

I know that along the coast the radio reception isn't too great for radios.
Where along the coast are you?

The Zenith may have some rubber covered wire from what I hear, and would show crumbling and falling off the wires.
If this is the case then you will have your work cut out for you.

Please keep us informed of your progress.

Again thanks for posting, and please continue to post. No question or comment is too small. It allows everyone the opportunity to get to know you, and offer needed advice and camaraderie. Very Happy

Hey y'all! My name's Dave, some of y'all may know me from a few other forums as Motorola Man. I'm an electronics technician by trade, and an antique radio fanatic in my spare time. I've been collecting and restoring tube radios for a couple of years and am most interested in pre 50's radios. I look forward to chatting with everyone soon.

Hi all! I'm 47, a welder/boilermaker in NSW Australia. I always enjoyed radio even from a very early age and have a fascination for radios of the 1920's, especially homebrewed. "High Tension" is a play on words referring to both the "B" voltage circuit and a contrast to the relaxation radio brings. Slowly, I'm learning to build my own radios aimed more at DX than audio quality. I don't post often, but I do read a lot.

Hi, my name is Bill. Username is NT9K which is my ham radio call sign. I'm in Melbourne Florida and interested in building crystal radios and tube receivers. My hobbies are building telegraph keys, Elmering new CW operators, building all kinds of ham gear and designing web sites. Lately, I have become interested more in building crystal radios, but I have a lot to learn.

Good luck with the new forum. I hope to get to know lots of you and learn from you too!

Just an old senior that recently got interested in crystal radio. While taking the wife yard sailing several months ago, I came across a fellow that had been into radio for years, he was selling off all his radio "stuff" as he had health problems. He had a bunch of things for sale, and gave me quite a good price if I was to take all of it. I looked at all the "stuff" and had no real idea how it was used. Anyway I bought it all, brought it home and am still sorting through it. I now have a very good idea about it all and with the help of a few guys over on Rap-n-Tap, I am now excited with all of this radio "stuff" and have even built a few radios on my own.

SWsenior

I should add that I am mostly interested in crystal radios.

PostSubject: hi, nice furniture, when do we eat?   New Members Please introduce yourself. Icon_minitimeDecember 24th 2011, 9:15 pm

came over for a visit, from radioboard. like it here. may stay a while if the fleas aren't too bad.

started dreaming back in conn as a very young kid. some neighbor/ham/nut/? tossed a pile of chassis over the junk cliff, i found them and hauled the whole mess home to the dark, dank cellar under my folk's 1800's house. it grew and soon was thought of as the mad scientist's lab. i pulled everything apart i touched, got fingers smacked a lot, but learned to love the stuff.

meshna and fair radio sales big then with really cheap war surplus electronics. i bought whatever my soda bottle sales brought in, and promptly tore it apart... what a wealth of wonderous doo-dads littered every corner. stuff like that nowadays would put my kid thru college.

built xtal radio from cigar box plans in pop tronics ? had pile of wires around box, meshna microwave diode detector, usaf phone set, worked well. later bought typical catswhisker gizmo from back of funny book for 29 cents, made another radio, and kept on

once was a navy et guy, back in 60's. worked shipboard comm gear, got prez award for keeping wrt2 xmtr working with rubber bands during time red chinese were harassing us near turkey.

two things influenced my life: lady renting apt from mom was a document reproducer. she gave me a huge binder of gobbledegook that i pored over, but understood little. turned out to be some of the earliest engineering work on materials later to be called semi-conductors and ics. next shot was much later on. shipboard i was trying to order my etn2 course book, but they sent instead 'digital applications and mine-firing techniques'. i fell in love with boolean, digital, binary, octal and logics.

end result was a job at rca main frames. made them work after assembly. next went on to program the computers that tested ics, from wafer fab to final qa tests at itt (had original fairchild patents) and rca again, ala cosmac 1802. suggested to their engineers we might put all the other chips in one case with microprocessor... they laughed. what did i know. o well. can you say intel? amd?

been my own pc company past 30 years. set up business systems, trained them, then got stuck there for years at a time. current one past 18 years, and still teaching them. hope they like me.

now before you say 'wow', let me tell the small print. i'm extremely ocd. where others may have walked in my shoes and ended up remarkable successes, i saw the big picture, details and footnotes, then got bored and moved on before greatness arrived.

so today, after years of collecting, i need to retire and play with my toys. i have hundreds of future-unfinished projects to attend to. but i find much needed inspiration from y'all who have gone 'n dunnit. retirement will have to wait. enjoy my work too much to stop.
don't know if you can relate, so i'm left jeswonderin

P
Welcome jeswonderin!

I started out with a crystal radio for Christmas in 57-or so, found a radio chassis and plugged it in and it worked, of course with bare feet found out it could shock me on concrete floor, so I learned the first terms of electricity and insulation and shock, LOL.

Also had High school radio course and built 1 tube radio. When In high school, newest car radios were transistor hybrids and I used to get old tube radios from trash heap in the auto radio repair shop on the way home from school. Then college ,Industrial electricity, studied Naval Electronics correspondence courses as a Civil servant at same time, during Vietnam era. Stayed working for Navy, Ah Yes WRT2 I overhauled many of the Tuners and couplers too! Made a few mods too!  They sent me to college and learned digital, analog electronics ,solid state electronics and devices, computers, I started to be the first in my classes to hand in assignments with a Commodore 64 and epson 9 pin dot matrix printer, using Basic language programming to make printed assignments, and test's. 

Moved onto Computers Navy Test equipment Calibration Lab, Implemented a Hazmat and Hazmaterial storage and scrap metals for our Electronics Shop 67, and  till retirement, retired 6 years now.
