Big Changes!

See the new layout.
Hope you like the new look for the site. The new design has allowed me to move the old sidenote articles back to the pages they related to.

Don't worry though... I'll still keep the articles page up and will be adding more soon.

ill titleWelcome !

Thanks for visiting Vintage Wireless.

ill_1September 2007. New radios and a new look.

Yes, I know I only updated the site at Christmas time last year. Hopefully you'll like the new look and find it easier to get around.

One of the new areas to be found on the site is the Wanted & For Sale section. It is my hope that as word gets around my fellow collectors and enthusiasts will start to avail themselves of this service and put some of their items up for sale. Here's hoping!
