Hey I got into this when I was 10 . I grew up in Tamworth, NSW where the only choice of music was country music so I got into trying to pick up long distance stations to have a better choice.i just fell in love with valve radios . The sound is awesome and they are so much more flexible than the modern ones. I am working on adding Bluetooth capabilities to my current project so I can choose all the classics to play and I have also devised a way to play mp3s on my mom's 1930s gramophone and all of this can be done without major changes (if any) to the units. For a while there I thought this to be sacrilegious but in reality modifications have been done to sets like this since inception.
