Old Radio Links page

Welcome to my Old Radio Links page. Last updated 8th November, 2004..

Firstly a couple of books...

Old Time Radios! Restoration and Repair Carr, Joseph J., Tab Books, 1991 ISBN 0-8306-3342-1 A little on the technical side, but still useful.
Antique Radio Restoration Guide Johnson, David, 2nd edition, Wallace-Homestead, 1992 ISBN 0-87069-638-6 A very good guide book for those starting out as well as providing odd hints and tips. Helps you to buy things, what to look for, how to do certain repairs.
