Hey everyone,

I'm a grumpy young fart from the south coast of Western Australia near Albany. Smile

I've perused the forums for a few years now, just needed to pull my finger out and join.

My collections (while not in a displayable state at present) runs around 20 radio's, 5 consoles and 10 radiograms. Every time I unload a few to make it manageable, I fall for another radio. Or another pair of 60/70's speakers.

Incidentally, does anyone else have an Airzone A411B that is portable? Uses 1T etc layout that appears to follow a schematic I once found in Radio TV and Hobbies.

Welcome to the forums. Your illness is an all too common problem - I've had it for 26 years and still haven't found a cure. Smile

I've gone through a few 6.5mm drill bits through mounting extra shelving on my walls too.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...

When you say "young fart"...
I'm 39, are you beating that? If so, a special congratulations!

I think it's cool that someone (like myself) wasn't really around for this, but gets into it.

My mum thinks I'm an old (young) fart, and I'm only 18! Apparently I belong in the 1960s!

If you've got the Woodstock DVD then you qualify.

A Woodstock Betamax cassette or a Super 8 film spool would add cred.

Indeed, as would the original means to view them.
