In the next couple of months it is my intention to modify the name of Vintage Radio to account for an apparent increase in interest in vintage television. Accordingly, on a date to be set, Vintage Radio will be renamed Vintage Radio and Television.

As discussed in another thread, this website will happily accomodate any worthwhile general or technical discussion on any aspect of vintage radio or television regardless of whether thermionic valves or solid state devices are employed. It should be remembered that cathode ray picture tubes are technically a type of thermionic valve so an otherwise solid state television is still fitted with at least one valve.

There is one issue that I do not quite know how to deal with just yet and that is the site's address. Vintage Radio has become quite powerful in search engines over the last few years not only because the site expands organically due to a slow but steady increase in content, largely due to the efforts of the regular members, but also because the search term 'vintage radio' is so common throughout the world. Because of this I am reluctant to change the site's address despite the intention to give the site a new title. This is an issue that will be best dealt with in the long term rather than in a matter of weeks or even months.

With the change in name there will be a new masthead for the site and these changes will take place ahead of the rollout of the new website that is currently under development.


A valve a day keeps the transistor away...
