    (y)Welcome! Nice looking station, the shelves keep the gear from being stacked. I like it, hope there is room on the wall for more shelf. Radios seem to multiply for some reason.

    William,

    Tune to Channel 13 Wednesdays for Classic Radio Roundup. About 8PM or so. You should be able to hear the troops running a variety of radios, many tube type.

    Cheers!

    Got that Turner Plus Three mic for 25 bucks. Not sure if it works though. Have to wire a 4 pin plug to it & check it out. Plan on doing that tomorrow.

    Sometimes they work sometimes they don’t. Lots of folks on the forum know how to fix them.

    For the record I’m not one of those “folks”. All I know how to do is change the battery and Push To Talk.

    I have one that works and one that doesn’t.

    Whether or not you have something to say, the correct mic is ready to hand.

    My phone died and arose again after the third hour.
    All was erased. Lazarus, am I.

    New only in name only.
    Perseverant sinner otherwise.

    (Didn’t recognize who made that crack? Then put a sock on it, chief)

    Phone died. Took its old life with it. Adios, ol’ Slowmover.
    Re- boot after new battery, case, etc.

    Now let’s get back to congratulating the OP on his comfortable-looking set up.

    He’s ahead of me, that’s certain. Stuff stacked all around here.

    It's gonna take me a minute to get used 579Pete. I'm not good with adapting to change, you might say I'm a slowmover. :ROFLMAO:
