Hi CVRS members,i

t know how to repair or restore them and apologies for my ignorance in the field.However...my dad was one of the early hamwave guys in St Marys Ontario in the mid 20s and sold radios in his shop there til
the early 30s.Unfortunately most of the radios are long gone but there are a few items from that era that i would like to post in his honour and thanks to all of you guys for indulging me here.Don

s incomplete), on him from the early 30s.Thank you for taking the time…

Hi, I am also Don. AKA VE3LYX. I am into early radio and have several. Recent project is a cabinet but electrified Majestic which was going well till I discovered an open filament in a 26 tube. Need a Canadian source and “used good” is fine. I have an ancient 00A Regen which works (Stark Toronto) and a few neutrodynes. I also built and operate one tube transmitters using 01A tubes or 45s. I have experimented with early loop modulation and successful had QSOS of several hundred miles with a single tube and a carbon mic. Also the Octal tube equipment interests me and I have operational a trio 9r com receiver and a DX60B transmitter with matching HG10B receiver. I like to build Ham equipment of bygone eras using old parts and use it on air.
I can function in Eng De or FR if required as well as morse code. Eng is my native language, De my “blut” language and FR by force.

Hi folks. I’n new to the group. I thought I would introduce myself and spend some time checking the forum out before becoming a paid member.
I am in Kamloops BC. Mostly into vintage guitar amplifiers however do have a couple of vintage radios.
First one I picked up was a 1942 Marconi Am radio in St. John’s NFLD from Tasker Squires. Not sure if you know of Tasker.
He is a vintage radio nut. Real nice guy. Restores old radios.
I also have what I think is a mid-50’s Hudson Bay Co. console AM radio with record player. Tube of course.
Works but I plan to get in there and service it as it’s all original. It is made by Electrical Products Manufacturing Co Ltd out of Montreal. We had a nice time listening to a few old records last night on it.
My hope is to come here to learn from others experience. Also as a source to ask for help.I understand a fair bit about tube amplifiers. I am self taught from hours of reading and practicing on mostly guitar amplifiers. I own 8 qty vintage Fenders from 1959 to 1973. I have serviced them all and maintain them myself. I quite enjoy it. Tube radios seems like a good fit for me too. Thanks, Keith
