I have two radios that were restored by "H. Brams" of Palo Alto. CA in the 1980's (or perhaps early 1990's). Cooljjay has this thread about a Pepsi bottle radio, also restored by H. Brams:

I think it's amazing that I've acquired two radios (a Philco 38-690 and a Philco 16B) that passed through his hands. I may have asked the previous owner of the 38-690 about him, but if I was told anything I've since forgotten. Does anyone know anything about H. Brams? He did excellent work BTW.

You might check with the CHRS radio club. They will probably know. He may have even advertised in their magazine?

His info is listed here:

http://www.californiahistoricalradio.com/repair.html

As well as in this directory as well:

http://www.mindspring.com/~tonyc/usefullinks.htm

His name also comes up at this site:

http://www.vrps.org/ in a repair person's list.

Looks like if you needed something fixed in his area, he's who they went to.

Geez, I'm in CHRS and I didn't even think to look on it's list of radio repair people. :oops:

Looks like Herb Brams published some articles in the NVRS bulletin too. The guy knows what he's doing as far as radios. :D
