Hey guys.

Have been plottering around with vintage computers, gaming consoles and radios as of late.

I spend most of my time out in the bush exploring and fishing, and at times finding some great old forgotten cars.

Rest of the time i'm doing repairs on laptops, computers and desktops.

If it has a transformer or capacitors it will be fixed, or blown up (I'm a photonicinduction fan)

Turning 19 tomorrow so not getting to old for it anytime soon.

G'day Hawkeye,

Welcome to the Vintage Radio Forums.

One is never too old for restoring radios and it's a hobby that ends up outlasting most of us I think.

I'm a bit of a camper myself and will be in the wilderness this Queen's Birthday long weekend with some of the family.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...

G'day Hawkeye Welcome aboard, It's a fun hobby collecting & restoring Old gear such as Valve Radios so much you can learn, I'm a fan of Photonic Induction too, His videos are very educational & entertaining, he has got quite a nice collection of Old Tungar lamps & Rectifiers, including a large 3 Phase mercury arc rectifier, These are a thing of beauty, especially powered up!!!
