Old Favorites

January 30, 2011

We continue to see lots of the 6V6 kits – which we call the “remember when” kit – others call them “slat board” transmitters – lead the sales here. The costs of mailing our items continue to be reviewed. This was necessary because we could not get the “Buy Now” buttons to reflect our mail costs. If you were turned off by high postage costs, please recheck the item. Still unhappy? email us . The newsletter went out as promised. We add several new readers with each mailing. Still room for more. Back to the lab – got to release these new products! 73 Glenn

Mid January News

January 17, 2011

Did you see the new dummy load on the web front page?  A simple usefull and fun kit.  The next newsletter will be out any day now.  It covers some use of the dummy load in transmitter development here.  Remember the little nut holders that were included in the kits in the 1960’s?  We have them in stock.  See the newsletter.  The 6L6 we sell has been tested as well. Read about it in the newsletter.  We are VERY pleased with tests.  Hate to direct you to the e-newsletter, but there is just not enough room here to give you much detail. Go to and follow the button to the “Coantact Us” page. There you will see a checkoff to get on the newsletter list.  If you don’t hear from us within a couple days,  try emailing us at  Be sure to include a subject line.  Very best regards  Glenn NN8G
