Just who am I?(info on the newB) ME
« on: July 06, 2014, 01:58:47 PM »
Anyone wondering who this "TonSpa" person is I will give you some info:
I live in Wisconsin USA in a small town by the river all my life (my profile has age info on it)
I have been collecting tube radios for about 5 years now....they take up a LOT of room.
I have also been collecting clock....not any kind few models.....big ben from westclox type. and chimeing clock. like the Gilbert and the seth thomas
I am also into weather and have my own weather station that uploads info about my area. and have a lot of weather cams.

now on to phones. I was given a few old rotary phones that were going to get junked. well....just a little bit of cleaning and they worked just fine....all but one...can't seem to get it to ring. anyway...
that is it for now...if I think of more I will edit this.

Welcome!!


We have a few other Radio/Clock collectors on this forum. Generally, we have a semi-active thread about them which can be viewed in ''off topic.''

Welcome fellow radio and clock collector. I like radios with tuning eyes and have big attractive dials. Radios do take up a lot of room and I have no more room except for an attractive console. maybe a big black dial Zenith. While I have clocks I am more of a pocket watch collector.

I've been wanting to join Citizen Weather Observer Program but I'm the type that sometimes needs things explained to me verbally.

Welcome to the forum! I'm gonna give the usual warning that goes around here: Whatever collection of phones you have now will be doubled before you know it. "Phoneitis" is extremely contageous, and it's either caught when you get your first phone, or when you join the forum, whichever come first.

I too live in Wisconsin. I live in Waukesha, but my family owns a piece of land out in Steuben, near Prarie du Chien.

Thank you all for the warm welcomes. I see I still have some learning to do on here (did not see the new member introductions forum.)  :-[
