"Sorry to hear that, Carlos.  We are all getting older. That is the best reason for us to be more active than ever. It is good that we share our ideas. They may even help someone when we are gone. Have a great summer!"

Hello, I picked up a Phantom radio at a garage sale.  The turntable needs rewiring but it does function. I did check the tubes and they all work. I did check the tubes and they all work. The radio receiver is not currently working.  I do not know if this is because of a electrical problem or my lack of basic knowledge in electronics.  I am toiling between selling the unit or learning basic 101 electronics.  If someone wishes to make me an offer,, i will consider it.  My email is…
