Hi From Texas Serious radio collector

Post by SeanKW1920 on Fri Feb 01, 2013 11:05 pm

Hi everyone

I wanted to introduce my self. I have been on other radio forums but thought this might be nice to do.
I have been collecting radios since around late 1974 early 1975. Anyways I love the radios of the 1920's
and before. I have a huge book collection going back to 1903,and magazine collection on the Wireless age
of radios. Other words I have many different magazines on radios dating back to around 1905.
I stop collecting for a while due to my wife and family being killed in 2006 in a car wreck. We went out to
Christmas shop and I woke up in ICU to find all my family had been killed except my oldest daughter.
My wife was driving and she could not get out of the way of the other driver who cut accross a freeway and
drove straight in to us doing 60mph. It was really bed.
Anyways I had to waite on collecting and have started back up this last month again.

I am trying to restore my Westinghouse RA DA radio,but both transformers have open windings and I need
some transformers,or substitutes that will work in the place of them.

Anyways Glad to be part of the group

Thanks

Sean, welcome and I can't imagine the pain you have gone through. Nice to have a place that can help you along with your hobby with friendly people and happy to help. Not a bad place to "hang".
