I have a Fleetwood 1054 and I am looking for any info and wireing circuit for it.
I found a collector on the web.
OZ radio web site.http://ozradio.wireless.org.au/valve.htm.
Tried to contact him with the Email address link supplied,
hobbo.smartchat.net.au
The emails send are returned as not deliverable. This man has a collection of 40s - 60s radios including Philips model 168 & Fleetwood model 1054 and other simular models.

Can anyone help me to contact this person.

If any one can offer anything on Philips / fleetwood radios it would be much appreciated.

My first post.
Regards, Uncle Bob

G'day Bob and welcome to the Vintage Radio forums. Quite often people change their e-mail address and forget to update this on their webpages. When this happens there's no easy way to contact the site's owner, especially if they don't own the domain name associated with the website. Don't give up though.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...

G'day Bob,

It's probably not a bad idea for Radio of the Week to be shared amongst the site's membership. At the moment, only my own radios play a starring role but the problem here is that the cream of my crop is small and thus, some radios appear twice throughout the year.

I'll give that some thought over the next few weeks and naturally, anyone else's images would be displayed only with their consent and the owner would receive the appropriate credit for it.

If you'd like any images relevant to this thread included in your post, just e-mail them to Brad.mail.vintage-radio.com.au and I will sort it out for you. I am currently working on a new function for this website (which, incidentally, is proving to be a challenging task) where each member will receive their own folder on the server for storing any images they want to display in their posts. Once I perfect this and make sure there are no security problems associated with it I will let everyone know about it and how it will work.

Ahhhh yes, oddly enough there is a page that shows the list of Members however it has never been activated in the six years the site has been running. That may get looked at before March when the page allowing members to update their account details goes live.

That rack of servers is in my laundry. Probably not the best place as when the dryer is running the room is hot and steamy but there is forced ventilation behind the rack cabinet and those servers are quite tough.

G'day Bob,

There's no-one by that name here as far as I can see. This may be what you are looking for though.
