saying hell from the pacific northwest
 
Hello all. Im a guy who loves tinkering with old machines and electronics. Last year i recapped a 1938 westinghouse radio and.. i got the electronics bug. Since then ive built a few simple single tube 01A regenerative receivers, some crystal radios with solid state amplifiers. Recapped a few more tube radios, even attempted and sorta succeeded in getting a '56 packard bell tv working.

I look forward to seeing what some of you have done.

You'd better watch your step, language like that means we'll keep a very close eye on you! ;)

I think it's supposed to be "saying hello from the pacific northwest". Of course I may just be pointing out the obvious >.<

Welcome to DIYa.

I think with the weather as of late that he posted it correctly. :)

Mind you with things on the east coast...

Where I come from 1111!!111xDDDDDDDD is usually the norm, that and I do tend to take things a little too seriously:D
