Happy New Year!

I just returned from the US with a suitcase stuffed with transistor radio's.It was a small miracle that they survived the journey without any damage.I also had a few radio's in my backpack and my carry-on luggage.My focus was on General Electric and RCA Victor radio's.So for example I have the RCA Victor 3-RH-10,4-RH-11,1-RG-33,1-TP-2E and 1-RH-10.
And from GE I have the P-800A,P745A,P915,7-2516 and 7-2515.

New additions to the radio collection

In the past few days I added some new radio's to my growing eclectic collection of radio's.
One is a Hitachi WH-1160,a multi band radio from around 1970,it has four bands and a direction finder on top.
The others are all Hong-Kong made world receivers,and in true HK fashion there are a few that are identical but were sold under different brand names.Even if they are pretty cheaply made,they still are pretty good for their money.

My growing collection

When I travel to the USA a big pile of boxes is waiting for me to unpack.And then bring them all back home again.Most of them are small pocket radio's,with a few bigger transistor radio's.I decided to focus on RCA Victor and General Electric.
I also will be getting two,possibly more,Grundig radio's:one is a Satellit 2100,the other an Ocean-boy transistor 3000(update:another one I got was this one:)
