Hi all,
    I received the following e-mail which might be of interest to
collectors. I'm putting it here in good faith that it's genuine...


       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We have been cleaning out my fatherís garage and workshop and after 60
years as a radio/TV hobbyist and repairer of anything electrical or
mechanical he has accumulated a lot of stuff.  There are more than 50
radios & chassisís with some wooden and many Bakelite cabinets, boxes of
valves, some valve testers, a couple of oscilloscopes, a few valved
amplifiers, early valve car radios, portable radio record players, early
transistor radios (many still in the leather carry case), early TVs,
boxes of assorted knobs of radios & TVs, dozens of jars of nuts bolts
screws, resistors, capacitors and all the other stuff needed to repair
anything that came his way.  In addition he had saved all the copies of
Electronics Australia (about 1960 to 1991) and some copies of Radio, TV
and Hobbies from the middle 50ís.

So if you have a network of enthusiasts who are interested in old stuff,
could you please let them know that there will be an auction at 30 Lucan
St Bendigo on the 9th Nov 2007.  Any stuff not sold will end up in the
tip and I know Dad would be very saddened if it didnít go to a good home.


If you need more details please give me a call

Sound like the kind of stuff all we enthusiasts and collectors dream of!
Pity I'm too far away...

Thanks Bob, feel like racing up there myself, just to see what she has.
However, told the ex-brother in law, VK3GB, he may contact you re the
phone numbers.

Don (and any others). I would be interested in what valve testers are
available, if someone wants to make a margin!

    Thanks Don. I reckon there'll be some serious bidding for at least
the valve testers and some of the valves, especially if they're Mullard
6CA7s/EL34s etc.
    I hope all the gear will go to good homes. I hate to see parts of
our electronic history ending up in landfill.

Particularity when a lot of it may still be very usable, even in todays
world.

I just noticed this message below in misc.industry.electronics.marketplace
newsgroup:
