First topic message reminder :

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

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!

So Glad to have you on board, your experiences are very close in-line with mine (Military Electronics, in Dept of Navy Civil Service). So with your experience please jump right in to the world of old radios and speak right up!

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.

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.

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

PostSubject: Newbe to the forum   2011-09-08, 11:05 pm

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...

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.
