Hello, I'm new here!

Post by tjet25 on Thu Feb 16, 2012 7:42 am

Hello everyone,
I am new here. I live in the Cincinnati area. I have been restoring radio's on and off for the past two years. Back in another lifetime I was an Aviation Electronics Technician in the Coast Guard. That's where I got my experience and knowledge. With that said, I have just enough knowledge to be dangerous in electronics because that was over 25 years ago. I've been trying to regain my knowledge by reading and hands on experience. I also enjoy woodworking, so this hobby seems to be right up my alley. I've restored about 5 radios now, fortunately, they all work and I'm still here to talk about it. My restorations vary from just cap replacement to full blown overhaul (including cabinet) with alignments. I'm now working on a Philco 40-180 for my in-laws. I acquired this radio for about $70 from an elderly gentleman in the area. This radio is more work than I desire (lot's of rotted rubber wire) but I just keep plugging away at it. The cabinet is in fine shape and may just need minor touchup. Anyway...I'm rambling on now so I'll close. I'm glad to be here. Tony
