Hello from Tennessee

Newbie on the forum here. Been in Electronics and communications since 1959. Worked on all kinds of equipment; 2 way radio, communication equipment in telephone offices, etc, broadcast radio, and currently part time as a copy tech and printer repairman. Worked for CSX railroad in radio repair shops for 36 years.

I have a few old radios I like. 3 or 4 old shortwave radios. I like test equipment. But, hey I'm retired now at 76 but just can't lay my hand tools down yet. The forum looks very interesting.

hello

I live in Bruceton off hwy 70. I work for R&R Copier occasionally. Sounds like you've been in the business quite a long time. I've repaired a lot of Motorola Two way radios in my stint at L&N / CSX. Installed a lot of different kinds of equipment as well. Finished up my career the last three years in Nashville at Radnor yard. The RR is more high tech than most imagine.

I did repair work there in Bructon for awhile. Garry and I had a recording studio downtown there. I now work for Dex imaging as a field service tech.

Hi Guys,

I am new to the forum myself but I am relocating to the Nashville area.

Can anyone here refer me to someone local that could restore my TV sets?

Mostly Zenith consoles from the 60's. I am learning to do small stuff but would love a full restore on at least one or two of my sets (I have almost 10).

Thanks!
