im awaiting a new radio to be delivered :)

well its a new radio to me :thumbsup:

yeasu ft102 its an old valve radio ... looking forward to putting it through its paces

When you wrote, ‘……old valve radio‘, I was thinking of something like this one in my garage.

I inherited it from my wife’s fatha and he had it from her grandfatha.
We’re not sure how old it is but at least 50 years old we reckon and still going strong.
It’s been in use most days, several hours per day, sometimes as long as 8 hours per day over the past 27 years that I’ve had it and it’s never failed!
