The aim of this page is to document Mel and Jims' collection of vintage communication equipment.

The collection covers domestic, commercial and military radio equipment, as well as telephone and telegraph items, and the test equipment required to maintain them.

There is also a large collection of novelty radio items.

These pages will slowly develop to exhibit as much of our collection as we can.

Please click on the links below to access the collection, or us the A-Z index.

The Behind the Scenes area is intended to show the restoration or repair of items for our collection, to give hints on repair and restoration, and to provide an area to advertise surplus items for disposal.

I have started to take some of the items in our collection to display at local events. Some of the events are shown here.
