Hello Mr Coordinator,
I can’t really comment on the state of the radio hobby in Regina as I only moved here 4 months ago from Montreal. What I have noticed is there is very little available Tube radio wise to purchase due to the small population base. More people live on the island of Montreal than in the Province of Saskatchewan! I have managed to find some cool old radios from time to time and have gathered enough of a backlog to get me through the long cold Winter. Hobby seems to be in decline as when stuff does come up for sale, it’s usually because someone has passed and there seems to be very little interest in old radios by anyone below 40 years of age. Not aware of any radio repair shops or even anyplace that sells tubes. have had to go with Pacifictv for tubes etc.
