new here

Post by RonE on Thu Jun 21, 2012 1:02 pm

I recently retired as an electronic technician for a 2-site, 800MHz Simulcast EDACS trunking system. I have a H-P 54600B o-scope, but the rest of my test eq is mostly Heathkit stuff. I have an Echophone EC-114, Hallicrafter S-38A, Zenith C730, and a ? (1937ish Philco console hidden deep in my storage loft. I decided to get into tube radio because I had never worked with tube except for some tube finals in Motorola Motrac stuff. Thus, I have a lot to learn, but am enjoying it as it 'keeps my mind active' learning stuff that is new to me. I also have a 1954 Studebaker pickup and a 1941 Packard, as old cars has always been my interest. They both have Philco 6v radios, of which, neither presently work. I spent much of the first year of retirement doing the repair work on the old Heathkit test equipment. I am just now working on the EC-114.
