My name is Khaled. Most people call me Kev cause they cannot pronounce my name lol.

I am a computer engineer and hold Bch degree in telecommunication and electronics. I have never worked in electronics as I switched to computers 20 years ago.

It all started when I found a dumped console near my home month ago, I couldnt leave it for the rain and I decided to save it knowing that % 99.9 this console gonna blow on my face when I turned it on. Funny enough, it worked great, just the turntable needed lot of work.

Currently, I am interested in vintage radios ,record players and wood restorations.

Welcome to the forums Khaled.

As RedXM said, once you start in this game you can't stop but the old saying is once bitten, forever smitten. I'm still at it 26 years after my first radio, a $3.00 Kelvinator mantel radio (chassis only) purchased compulsively at an antique shop in Tamworth.

I am about to shift abode and, naturally, my first consideration was my radio collection, most of which has already been relocated. They don't travel well in a moving van.

Best of luck with your activities.
