The Fine Things are Always Hand Made

Hey Norm:

     Thanks for responding.  I guess I'll get some Brasso and Q-Tips and shine it up.  Probably see if it works.  Don't have an outside antenna here, feel a little old for climbing trees but it'll be good to get my other radios a stronger signal. So do you collector guys actually listen to your radios?  I had a guy tell me I could listen to all that on the Internet and I said  "But what fun would that be?"

      Gotta admit I like reading the old ads, and trying to imagine the history of radio.  Read a good book on the history of Ham radio which had some insights into early radio in general.  It's "The World of Ham Radio, 1901--1950, A Social History", by Richard A. Bartlett.  OK this is straying far from E. H. Scott in his famous days but he would have been a kid back then and I suppose he had a crystal set, and wanted to make it work better.
