Hi all,
I have had an interest since childhood beginning with what was even then an old Grundig Micro Boy that only last year I discovered had a history all its own. A few years later I was watching Spanky of Little Rascals fame listening to some kind of casket set like an old RCA 16, 17, or maybe a 33. It had me baffled. I wondered why his radio was so much bigger than mine. "Was it better?" "Did it have more in it?" "WHY was it bigger?" This would have been around 1970.

The fascination hasn't stopped. I still love the coffin sets best.

I was once a member here, but it had been such a long time since I logged in my user name and password didn't work anymore.

ANYway.... I was urged to get back onto the site by some members here to assist with the restoration and research on a few sets I have.

Among them are Aussie homebrews from the twenties, two Radiairs, a Salonola, AWA R46E (I have been told), and a few more. I also have some American sets from the 20's.

I enjoy using some of the sets for DX listening, especially the 20's sets. It seems some of then deserve more credit!

Thank you for having me here,

Lindsey Perkins.
