A Final Thought

The world of collecting and restoring old or vintage radios is a wide family of like minded people who spend their time (and money!) on their particular specialisation and passion. Mine as you have seen is the humble old Civilian Wartime receiver or “Utility set”. Happy collecting! 

If you require further information on how to restore or just staring a collection of your own I can thoroughly recommend the following web sites and Societies.

 British Vintage Wireless Society – publishes a regular newsletter and holds various meets and auctions throughout the Country. Well worth joining and a must for the serious collector!

Radio Workshop – A vintage radio repair business based in Worthing. Ray also produces a weekly video of repair and restoration tips and has a member’s area which gives access to plenty of additional information and tips.

UK Vintage Radio Repair & Restoration – Run by Paul Stenning and packed with excellent information, projects to build and a section on collecting and restoration. He also hosts the UK Vintage Radio Discussion Forum website – a wealth of knowledge from like minded enthusiasts.
