Carr Fire

Posted on August 1, 2018 at 11:41am 3 Comments

As some of you know, the Carr Fire has exacted a great toll in the City of Redding and surrounding area.  My house and half of my collection was the first visited by the fire in the devastated Lake Redding Estates neighborhood with no advance notice to evacuate and no fire trucks around.  Fortunately the house and collection were spared.  Unfortunately, however, I have learned that the house and collection of an acquaintance including several pre-war Scott receivers was lost and that another…

Mighty glad to become a member of this organization.  I look forward to many conversations in the near future.  Currently I'm working with Bill Bryan to find an A.W. 15 to add to my collection.  Incidentally, Norm you have been invaluable at helping me with my A.W. 23 and A.W. 12, dual dial and thank you for the invite.
