The last week or so has been quite busy. Not only is work busy but things aren't idle at home either. This week I began the development of a new website to replace this one. This has been attempted a few times in the last year or so to little avail due to other things getting in the road of what in reality is a big commitment. That said, I am happy with progress at this early stage and there will be some news items here on the front page in future as things progress further with this project.

In the meantime things continue to improve on the current website. I've noticed that a number of new members have decided to join us over the Christmas/New Year period. May I welcome these people to the Vintage Radio Forums and hope their time here will be enjoyable.

It is with great interest that I note that some of these newer members have a keen interest in vintage television. Despite Forum 6 being specifically for this aspect of Australia's broadcasting heritage things have been fairly quiet in this area and to be honest it was a bit of an experiement to gauge interest. Whilst things started off quite slowly I decided to leave Forum 6 as is and the decision may well pay off as new threads on vintage television have now popped up. I hope growth in this subject continues throughout 2011.

For those who are unaware, I have been slowly but surely adding a number of new features to the forums. Links to these features appear on your profile pages towards the bottom. Before Christmas all members gained the ability to change their passwords and e-mail addresses and add/change/delete an avatar image.

As of tonight I've added the ability to add/change/delete a forum signature. There is a 150 character limit for signatures - a higher limit would place a burden on server processing power. Please do not include images, website URLs or e-mail addresses in signatures or they will be deleted. There are other parts of the forums reserved for this sort of thing.

There are three other features still to be added and these will go live over the next week or so.

Happy New Year and happy collecting to all members and guests. Smile

Would it be possible to create a permanent picture gallery of Australian-made radios and televisions? It would be very useful for collectors.

I used to have a site map page here which contained links to a couple of dozen photos however for some reason the page seems to be lost.

The other thing is that the page was made for the original vintage radio site back in 2003 and the photos weren't particularly spectacular.

It's a good idea. I'll see what I can come up with over the weekend.

One idea I have for the new site is a section for members to upload their own galleries. It will be a fairly complex addition to the re-write of the forum software but certainly not undo-able.

Found it - http://vintage-radio.com.au/default.asp?id=site-map.

It should be noted that some of the pages linked from the Site Map page are no longer there because the original website had a different URL structure (and also a different URL!).

Some of the articles there formed the static pages of the original site and have long been superceded by more recent articles and the addition of the forums.

Hi Brad I have tried to email you to see if you could add a few pictures to my post regarding the sale of a Kriesler 11-20. The email keeps bouncing back though. Just checking your email is - valves.vintage-radio.com.au
Thank you for your time and a great web page!
Marto

G'day Marto,

My mail server doesn't seem to be experiencing any problems. Are your photos large? Is your e-mail account a free web-based one? These issues can sometimes cause problems with large attachments.

In this case you may need to either send one photo at a time or decrease their size.


Brad.

Brad,

You might like to add Kurrajong Radio Museum to the links and/or sites of interest panel:

http://www.vk2bv.org/museum/.

And it's a great place to visit! Ian O'Toole and his wife are fantastic hosts for tour parties.
