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

My username, razorradio, comes from the razor and pencil lead radios that the WWII soldiers used to build.  I had one that I made when I was a teenager and I built a new one decades later. It surprised me when I was actually able to get DX on it!  All the other reports of a razorblade detectors were of weak sound from local stations. 

The articles that I've seen on the WWII soldiers said that they were listening to stations about 30 miles away.  The ones I could hear as a kid were about 30 miles away.
A few years ago I built one and was able to get two stations that were both 300 miles away! WGN in Chicago and WJR Detroit.  I looked on the Internet and the farthest DX I've seen anyone else get was 100 miles.

The appeal of xtal sets to me is that they are so simple. Elmer G. Osterhoudt was a genius and a great asset to the hobby.  I still have a set that he sold me from almost 40 years ago.

Hello,
My name is Chris. I used to be a ham, but my license lapsed.
Now Crystal radios are my hobby.  My main focus is getting DX on simple sets using vintage parts from the 20's to the 50's.

I have submitted coin operated radio to the Radio Museum...my 4th submission. It took a while because the maker of this radio wasn't in their database. I was able to convince them that Pacific MFG Co was real at one time and they have added it to their list of manufacturers of radios. I expect this radio to be added to Radio Museum soon along with the photographs I uploaded.

There is a site called Radio Museum where you can look up brands and models of antique radios. Other than that there is Radio Attic with an archive of sold radios. As far as posting photos there is a site called Antique Radio Forum you can ask questions at. You may be able to join Antique Radio Forum and post pictures or post them here also. I have a Monarch Tombstone radio that I have not found the model number for. Sometimes with these old radios you can't find them.

Thanks for the welcome, Glenn!  I have just visited your website and have bookmarked it. You're at the top of my list for information and I'd like to meet you and your wife sometime. I'm starting slowly. I have a few Transoceanic sets and have picked one to restore. I also have what I think is one of a kind, a coin operated "motel radio" that lights up but makes no sound. Tubes all good, will check the output transformer and speaker next, no hurry, I'm retired and have time to put things off in favor of photography, my other passion. Here is a question. How do I go about posting photos? I'd like to post images of the coin operated mystery radio (Google image search came up with nothing on the web that matches the one I have). How might I make that happen?

---------------------------
Did you want to post Pictures Here?

My name is Jim Michelinie and I live in Port Orchard in Washington State, USA.  I have been collecting old radios for twenty-something years but have only recently started testing and repairing my collection. I've recently retired and finally have some time to work (or play) with my collection. 

My first experience with electronics was with a PA amplifier and eighteen inch cone speaker which I found in my uncles storage building. I hauled the speaker up to my tree-house, connected zip cord between it and the old PA amp on the ground. I connected the microphone to the amp expecting to be able to broadcast messages to the entire neighborhood. Unfortunately, my knowledge of electricity and other things electric was sadly lacking (I think I was ten years old). 

I boldly flipped the power switch expecting to see the tubes light up. Instead I heard a very loud buzz from the speaker which lasted less than two seconds. I now know about the 90 volt output on amplifiers!

I received electronics training compliments of the U.S. Navy.  I belong to the Puget Sound Antique Radio Club but have attended few meetings since my wife and I moved to the western side of the Puget Sound. The commute's too long for frequent trips.

Bottom line, I'm joining this forum in hopes I'll learn enough to actually fix a few of my radios and show them off.

Hello antique radio fanatics. I'm a retired electronic technician and software engineer, I also did some teaching. But I started in radio, I was stationed on Shemya Island Alaska during the cold war. We monitored ICBM's and I was a radio tech. Since retiring I started an antique restoration business where I live in Gig Harbor WA. Our website, named after our company is Anderson Classic Radios, we also advertize on Radio Attic. Would love to meet new friends and talk radios.

Hi Everybody
Capt Gary Porter 66years old energy researcher, location Melbourne Fl where I live on my yacht anchored in the river. My current energy research involves four items which require RF tuning, Tesla Coil dialectric energy they are George Lakhovskys MWO 99% done needs tuning. Anti-gravity platform info to build this came from a crop circle in England this project is 75% done and needs a Tesla Hairpin Circuit that will give three dialectric energy levels. impulse driven motor for cars 80% complete this project now needs some serious fonding. last project is a self running energy system using HF HV Tesla energy capacitive discharges. this last project will be used to power homes for free it needs to be built. when done it will be self running.

When I was in HS I used to repair old RCA radios the tube sound from these has a unique warmth that new radios can not produce.

Hello, my user name is 19&41, from The Old Dixie Highway. I am currently working in portable communications equipment and have a general license. my collecting is somewhat eclectic, having interest in various models I grew up with. I've met most of you on other sites, and wanted to be able to meet each of you here as well.

Hi my name is Frank. I am semi new to radio and radio repairs. I remember as a kid my parents and grand parents listen to the radio, especially my mother brother he loved to following the St Louis Cardinals on the radio. Since I have retired I though it would be good to get involved in another hobby. My main hobby is Metal detecting and have been doing that for about 22+ years.

I look forward to working with you all here. I am into anything with tubes in it, really, but I have a collection of Magnavox stereos of which is an kinda proud. Hopefully, there will be room for a phonograph guy on here. Best regards to you all.

Welcome from another new member. I like your website, Steve, and have bought some schematics there, too.
Test equipment is one of my favorite subjects and I like to work on the equipment, make probes, modifications, etc., too.
