I just joined today, wish I found this site years ago.
We moved from Taxachusetts last June, had it with the long winters, too much snow, roads full of pot holes, etc.
I'm a car guy, collect old radios (early transistor too) , cylinder machines, etc so I'm sure I'll like it here.
I had a big collection of AK's RCA's, Crosley's, Freed Eisemann, ACE, Philco catherdals, etc before we moved.
Sold almost all of them, no attics or basements in these NM houses.
I'm just getting into Ham radio too.
I'm also a moderator on one of the car forums.

Regards,
JimLev

Welcome to the fray. I own vintage tube radios and enjoy SWL'ing.

Thanks guys.
Besides the transistor radios the only vintage tube radio I kept was a Federal Model 59.
I also kept the 3 cylinder machines and a few old telegraph keys and a relay sender.
I'll post a link to all of the radios I use to have sometime soon.

Just bought a Diamond X50A 2m and 70cm antenna. Haven't installed it yet.
