Hello from PA

Post by JEEP on Fri Jul 09, 2010 12:16 pm

Hey all!
Figured I'd pop my head out of the hole I'm in and introduce myself.
I'm the ripe young age of 21 and from North East Pennsylvania. I recently picked up an old RCA 56X1 (5 tube) radio with all intentions of making it work. I'm not so much into the electronics scene but have always had a interest in "antiques" if you will. They are simple and easy to tinker with compared to modern day nonsense. Just looking for another hobby.
Thanks
JeepSpeed

I have no electronics training and very little experience. I know how to solder which is the extent of my radio repair knowledge. My plan is to do a lot of research and pick the brains of you "seasoned" radio guys.
