PostSubject: New member intro..   July 19th 2011, 11:05 am

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

I have been a licensed amateur radio operator since 1957.  My interest in electronics led to my career in information systems and now as a professor at a university.  Thanks for providing this site for connecting others with similar interests in the hobby of radio restoration and all the other facets of electronics.  73

My name is Tony and I'm in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area.

I've been a vintage radio program listener and vintage radio collector for over 40 years. My main interests are collecting and restoring higher tube count home radios, communications receivers and vintage audio equipment. I recently finished rebuilding a Hammarlund SP100 Super Pro and my current project is a Scott AM-FM Phantom.

Nice to have you onboard! I worked for the Navy with 32 years in the Electroncs Communications side of Shop 67. From 1967 during Vietnam till 1973, then did a stint at Tektronix. Got married in 1977, went to work at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard till my retirement in early 2004. 32 years of civil service.
I too am a Ham, but not too active now. I have my own room full of test equipment, mostly military, a few consoles, tabletop, and some transistor portables. Right now I am trying to calibrate a TV-7/U (first of the series) but always somethings coming up to delay.
So any way, if you have projects please post, or even snapshots. If you do YouTube videos, there also needed here. Jump right in. Advice and experiences are all ways welcome.

Been repairing radios for over 60 years.  An old graduate of National Radio Institute having worked for RCA, Magnavox and Panasonic as a field tech.  Now in my retirement years I have found much enjoyment in restoring old radios and guitar amplifiers. Laughing

Hi All,

Im Tony Corbo residing in Rockford, IL

I collect vintage items typically pre-1960 and love finding cool older items.

I recently became interested in Radios and have acquired a few Bakelite 1950s dewalds and just love their sound.

Anyway I look forward to learning about old radios and possibly even repairing them as I do have an electronics background.

Thanks,
Tony

Hi, new member here.
My name is Dan
I live just up the road from Nashville TN
Just recently turned 61 (yikes!)
My main electronic interest is tube guitar amps, though I'm still just a novice at building/repairing them.
My purpose in joining here is to get advice on my mother in law's RCA radio.
I'll post in another section of the forum for that.

Thanks, Dan

Hello to all forum members! Very Happy 
I live in Croatia, 75 years old. My hobby is ship modeling and photography, but I used to be a radio-amateur. I have an old radio receiver bought in early 50ties, last century. The radio is now functional, after I replaced vacuum tubes and electrolitic capacitors. The reproduction of sound is pretty bad, can't eliminate "broom" (half wave rectifier and, probably, bad capacitors). Must do something about this.

Jaymanaa, That's a serious type of sickness, just send all the radio tubes to us forum members, that should relieve your sickness, somewhat!
lol!
Sounds like your off on the right foot, by joining our Forum, cheers.

Hello, Jay from a Kansas City suburb here. I am into anything regarding vacuum tubes. I'm retiring from 37 years as a pipefitter this Friday so I will have a lot more time to dedicate to this madness. I'm mostly into older HiFi, and building custom tube amps, but I play with tube TVs, table radios, etc. If it has tubes in it, I'm interested in it. My dad was a TV tech back in the day, and I carried his caddy and searched for tube numbers as soon as I was able to go with him. My last estimate of my tube collection is around 40K, so I have the sickness pretty bad.

Hi Friends,
would like to introduce myself as a new member to this forum.
I am a german ham radio operator (DK3HE). Got my licence back in 1968.
Recently I have retired from work.
My love is with Hallicrafters. Have got an SR2000 and SR400, both with 
power supply. And the 2nd VFO HA-20.
Unfortunately not allowed to put up an antenna. I live an appartment house.
Despite I hold the highest german engineering degree, but my experience with
RF repair is rather limited.
I hope ti get assistance here?!

I have acquired quite a bit of older test equipment, with some Military penchant towards collecting it.
For the quality and dependability I vote Military Equipt. Every Time.

Hello to all and thanks for the add here.


My name is Ed Allen and I became interested in radio at a fairly young age and later became an amateur radio operator, call sign is N4TYX.
After being out of the hobby for almost two decades due to military service and moving around a bit, I once again took up my hobby about two years ago and enjoy restoring old "boatanchors" and test equipment as I consider it therapeutic and helps keep my now 66 year old brain active.


Nice to meet you all and I'm sure I will learn much here.

Hi! George thank you posting.
You are always welcome to cast your bread into our forum.
Sounds interesting.

I used to live in So-Cal during late 50s to early 70s.
I went on Google Maps, and Long Beach and Huntington Beach have change so much, and I used to know the entire LA  and Orange Counties like the back of my hand.

There were a lot of electronics industry, because of Douglas Aircraft and Lockheed, there was even a Rocket building plant in the Seal Beach area.

I have always wanted to use peanut, and Acorn tubes for building simple radios.
Both types are scarce in comparison to regular tubes.

Hi - I'm George. I live in Southern California and do consulting work in materials science. When I'm not 'in harness' on a contract, I tend to amuse myself with endless technology projects. I usually hang out on The RadioBoard Forums, but thought that I would cast some of my bread on the waters here.

My current assortment of boondoggles is focused on building DIY triodes for use in simple radios and amplifiers. The projects are mostly directed toward the materials, equipment, and processes needed to fabricate homebrew triodes. Its been an interesting journey so far. Maybe some of the folks here would be interested in trying the same thing. It's not all that difficult if someone shows you how to do it.

Hello everyone,

My name is Mitch, I live in central NC.
I am a 66 year old retired electrical engineer. I have been restoring tube radios for the last 8 years.

I have a collection of some 50 radios dating from the 1920's (battery/farm radios) to the pre WW11 1940's.

I used to post on NA, not too much on ARF, Radio Museum?

I look forward to posting on this site and answering questions that may help others restore their vintage radios and amp's.

Thank you all for solutions that I may post with my restores and I hope that I can contribute to others questions.

Regards,
Mitch

Good afternoon!
                        My name is Daniel. I have been restoring vintage electronics for about 4 1/2 years. In 2011 I had a stroke and now live in a nursing home. I am doing well. I have a private room where I have setup a small work table in which I continue to work on electronics. I have been looking for a forum for help and I am pleased I have found this one.
I am looking forward to getting to know everyone and learn more about these radios as well as electronics in general.
Everyone have a nice day!!
Thank you for allowing me to become a member and to bring back to life these wonderful radios.
