Jean,
Has anyone considered liquid cooling?
All one would have to do is thoroughly waterproof the radio’s innards, then equip each set with some sort of mini swamp cooler. A radio’s components should last forever in this scheme, with the possible exception of electrolytics, which are cranky under the best of circumstances.
We could then return to a world of vacuum tube, hard-wired circuitry — as God intended.
Alberta seems to get most of the blame for our cold spells (“Alberta clippers”). Your own province should be viewed with affection — at least in the eastern states — as Hydro-Quebec sends us lots of electricity. Unfortunately, most Amurricans probably don’t know this.
