I've been collecting old radios
for many years. The collection started while
growing up in Wisconsin. I did routine service,
tube testing and replacement for neighbors and relatives.
When the decided to get a new radio or TV,
many times they would give me the old set.
I still have the first 2 television
sets that my parents owned.
Most of the time I would work
to get them running. Sometimes, the problem
would be beyond my scope and would disassemble them
Soon I was hooked and bought
a couple at actions and antiques stores. I
have not added to the collection recently - figured
better to get the ones I have working again than
buy more. I was planning to restore/refurbish
some of them after I retired. But, I got instested
in cycling after my heart valve replacement. Time
to start selling off part of the collection.
