Hello from Alaska

Post by SteveinAlaska on Thu Jul 31, 2014 2:35 pm

Just signed on to the site a couple of days ago. Finally had time this morning to post. This is Steve in Alaska- Fairbanks Alaska. Retired, just turned 65 last week. Started into the antique tube radio hobby about 10-12 years ago. Got sidetracked into vintage stereo/hi-fi end of electronics for a while and last thing was learning to transfer my 78rpm record collection to digital format. All the while starting my journey for a degree in journalism beginning when I turned 60.

As for my collection, I sitting across the room from a 1941 Zenith 7S685, in the front room is a 1938 Stewart-Warner 91-627, then there are a small collection of some table model sets. My main interest in old radio are the AM/SW sets.
I grew up on a homestead outside of Fairbanks with listening to shortwave broadcasts from Radio Moscow back in the 1960s. Then in the 1950s we lived in Illinois (my dads home) and listened to AM broadcasts from all over the midwest and south in the evening.

Having the internet has been a BIG help in finding the info on my radios and is a renewing my interest in rebuilding these old sets to operating condition.
