The vintage radios and the multitude of other electrical bits and pieces pictured on the following pages have been accumulated over the years and now, with the aid of the Internet and lots of Virtual Space, everyone can see the collection, which is still growing.

All the repair stories are mine and describe real repairs for real customers.

The True Stories are from my 27 years in the Defence Industry with Plessey, a firm whose name was once associated with the manufacture of radio and TV sets and like many others has now been swallowed up by an even bigger company, not once but twice. Anyone that's worked in a big company will no doubt have similar tales to tell!
