Welcome to our forum!
This is one of two forums that we are simultaneously launching to accompany our VintageRadio.com website. VintageRadio.com is a vintage radio and electronics classified advertising and, perhaps more importantly, an information site with over 1,550 antique radio related links with Thumbshot previews and an extensive radio events calendar. We hope for it and these two forums to be part of and of use to the radio collecting family.
We have looked through lots of links and I believe this forum, Transistorized.com
, to be somewhat unique. There are a few forums that cover a little bit of the subject matter here but not all of it and, for some categories, none of it. If you collect transistor radios, calculators, digital watches or clocks, computing equipment, transistors (the component), or even cellphones or pocket games, you have a net home here!
Our other forum, AntiqueRadio.net
, is a traditional antique radio forum with at least one unique feature: We'll be glad to set up a section for any radio (or related) club that wants a section to discuss topics related to their club. Both of these forums are technically advanced with many features that you won't find on similar forums.
Features include audio and video posting capabilities from services such as You Tube, mobile phone viewing capabilities, easy footnoting for historical posts, 'solved issue' checkmarks for technical issues, and lots of little extras such as spell checking, post previews (so you don't have to open something that you're really not interested in!), and collapsible new post and topic sidebar lists as well.
We are very open to suggestions! We want all of these sites to be of use to you. They are new so it is easy to mold them to your desires and to offer unique, niche (and major) features that may be missing elsewhere.Please do remember: This is a group effort! Please don't wait for several hundred posts on any of these sites. You are the motivator! Jump in and start a thread. It may be a little lonely a first but this is not a spectator sport. We need your participation! We want the term 'our forum' and 'our website' to include you!
Thanks for looking (and please start a thread)!
