Old Radio Control Equipment Wanted - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Greetings:

One of my lifelong hobbies has been building and flying model airplanes. I am thinking about trying to assemble a museum of sorts of older electronic radio control equipment, and exhibiting it on RF Cafe. Some of the early tube transmitter and receivers would be really nice. So, if anyone out there has old RC equipment, engines, kits, etc., laying around just getting in the way, I would be more than happy to relieve you of your clutter.

Some of the items do actually have collector value as can be found on eBay and other sites, but I hope to be able to build a meaningful display without breaking the bank. Items do not have to be in working order or even in really good shape as long as they are restorable. Donation of items will be particularly appreciated, and full credit will be given to the contributors.

Thanks.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
