Forum rules


If your thread or post disappears - read the rules again - no warnings or explanations will be given when threads or posts are deleted.

The following requirements must be followed when advertising personal antique radio / TV / audio / phono items (such as discussed in the forums here) for sale in the classifieds forum:

  • TITLE--Titles must START with: FS (when selling) or WTB (when wanting to buy) or Trade or Free at the beginning of the title.
  • PRICE--FS posts must have an "asking" price and offers may be sent by PM. Are you parting something out? ... price each major part (not things like screws and nuts)
  • LOCATION--There must be a location somewhere in the ad or the members profile (City & State or Zip Code are the minimum requirement). This includes WTB ads.
  • Discussion -- This is NOT a discussion forum. If you're not buying or supplying or suggesting a relevant solution, don't post - send a Private Message. Comments on pricing will be deleted.
  • Ads are limited to two per day, and may not be bumped sooner than 7 days after the last post to the thread.
  • No outside sales links are allowed other than to pictures of actual items being sold. No links allowed to eBay, Craigslist etc.
  • First to post to an item for sale stating "I WILL TAKE IT" it is first in line. Subsequent claims will be followed in the order they are posted. Claims to "Take it" can be conditional on unknowns such as shipping costs.
  • Any "PM sent" posts without posting a reason for the PM will be deleted as they are meaningless to anyone else reading the thread.
  • Once a deal is made, edit the title to say so.
  • Topics will be locked when deals are made.

Ok folks here is a chance of a lifetime. I am giving away my entire radio collection to the first person willing to pick up the entire collection. The rules say I have to post a prize, so for one penny ($0.01).
I have:
17 console radios. 40 table radios. 25 pieces of test equiptment and misc. 10 boxes of Sam Photofax.
Email me for a list and I will send it to you ( mbeltram@roadrunner.com )
I have added the attachment for the list.
Also. I will select form the list of interested people on Tue. 3/27

Well, I tried to attach the xls file but I don't think it showed up. Just email me
Well, to all the radio folks.

Just want to update The transfer of the radio collection. Everything has found a new home. I am glad to have met a young man from this site by the name of Jonathan Ketron. attending Bowling Green State University who took most of radios and test equipment. He certainly had the enthusiasm of someone who will carry on the pleasure of radio collection/restoration. The other collector Ed Locker(ed857) took the rest. Thank you and goo luck to all who responded.
Manny Beltran

What a selfless act. My hat's off to you, pardner. :wink: You've come to the right place to find somebody who will give these a new home.

Manny, could I make a suggestion?

How about contacting a regional club and donating it all to them? Clubs often rely on donations to resell at their meets to provide funding and help keep them alive. Your generosity will then benefit many, and not just some opportunist who may just be looking to make a quick score for flipping.

You have a club nearby: http://coara.tripod.com/page2.html

Contact them and see if they can send a crew over to pick up the items.

I need test equipment if you're willing to ship (I'd pay shipping of course!).

If I had a way to haul all of this and was physically able to do so I would be ALL over this! Very selfless act and I am sure someone will be very appreciative. If I was only younger...... :cry:

I agree with Jim. If you can find an organization that would take them not only would they benefit greatly but you could most likely get a tax write-off.

DITTO, tax write off and a club would benefit. Even if I lived next door to him thats what I'd suggest. Too many radio for one person to do justice with. JMO

I sent you a PM to that email address. Very nice of you to do what you're doing. I hope in the end they'll go to good homes and not flippers.

Or call Estes radio auctions in Burbank, an hour north of you. They are great people to work with.
