Why buy new when there is a wealth of old Radios and Radio equipment available for sale in retail shops such as Lindars of Yeovil, on Ebay and Facebook and indeed at Amateur Radio Fayres throught the country.
With a little bit of TLC you can turn a tired old Radio etc into a very usable piece of equipment and often at a fraction of the price of new equipment! Follow the links on the header pulldown menu and choose your project. Maybe send us some pics and descriptions of your restorations? Good luck.
