New radio's

The collection is steadily growing,with the main focus now on radio's which combine tube and transistor technology.The radio at the top of this page is not one of those:the all transistor kinds of gives that away.It is a Philips B5W32AT from 1963-1964 and a barnfind hence the rough cosmetic shape.It is partially working: the FM is hardly audible and the needle in the right scale is not moving.

Another two recent aquired radio's:the top one is a Philips B4X52AT from 1965-1966,the other one is also a Philips :the 22RB361 from 1966 and an example of the combined tube/transistor technology.

A new begin

A fresh new start for this blog which has been into hibernation for over two years.This doesn't mean I haven't been making things for all this time although that also was on a slow burner for awhile.
Some things I have made I'll post later,and new radio's I have collected.
Right now I'm making the pancake coils again,more about those later......

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.
