hello, I'm new to this forum. A little bit about me. I live in northern wisconsin, I play with early radio 1920s-40s. I have been interested in early tvs 1940s-50s. I now have 4. I restore early farm engines & tractors 1900-50s. & motorcycles. I am a marine veteran where I was an aviation structures mechanic. thanks for having me, scott

thanks guys, pics will come as soon as I have some extra time. I have 4 tvs. 2 round tube, 2 a little newer. I also have a bunch of tube radios 20s-40s. my favorite is my zenith porthole console thats yet to be restored.

Welcome Scott, Old tube radios have a little corner here versus other forums dedicated to them. Switching back and forth between tubes and transistors, tvs, radios and record players and more keeps you sharp, or distracted Im not sure which:scratch2:
But as for TV, most of us really do like Zeniths here, almost too much:yes:.

I've been a novice on this forum for some time now. The folks here are quite knowledgeable and extremely helpful with radios as well as TVs. Nice to have you. BTW, my grandsons are visiting us right now, and they'll be heading home to Crandon tomorrow.

Welcome from southeastern Wisconsin. My folks have a cabin up around Hayward that we sometimes visit.
