Radio collector?
« on: May 05, 2019, 04:57:40 PM »
So I went to the local auction last night just to see what they had, wound up bidding on an old tube radio. They had two for sale, I bid it up to $9 and won buyers choice. I picked one and they gave me the other for the same price. I got both for $18! So I guess now I collect radios too!

Now you have some old radios to complement your old telephones!

Tread Lightly there my friend. Vintage radio collecting is just as addictive as phones.  A couple of our long time members have switched to radios. Both endeavors are equally satisfying though.I personally have about 50 radios, some still in the boxes I received them in.  IF you get my meaning.
I have a small AM transmitter that I built from a kit  SStran AMT 3000. I like to put Old time radio show CD's into my computer and broadcast them to the radios. Theater of the MIND.
