Glad I found this forum!

Post by tubesrgr8 on Tue Jan 01, 2013 9:01 pm

After retiring and moving from LA to central AR, not to mention AT&T dropping newsgroups, I have admittedly let the hobby slide. I need something technical to keep my mind going. I'm still looking for parts buried under the detritus of moving, and now have shelves in the garage to display my radios, but hey, it's a start. There are 25 radios on the shelves, and in the house are my Zenith Chairside, RCA Stratoworld, Philco PT-6, and a little RCA B-411 portable. Some of the nicer outside ones are a Westinghouse Aeriola Sr., Philco 80Jr., Philco "Boomerang", Belmont 6D111, and many that I like, but most are not particularly rare or valuable. I just like tubes. Used to have more time and funds, and even built from scratch a stereo (Single ended triode/6A5G) amp. Over the years I have gotten support and great ideas from others whom I now see posting on this forum, and want to say thank you!

I first fell in love with tubes about 1957 when my mother had to call RCA in on the contract to repair our family tv.
I sneaked around the back to watch the repair man. I was totally taken in when I saw those glowing bulbs, and, that big round thing in the center that showed the picture.
I drove him nutts with all my questions.
I was hooked!
Still am......
