Sal's Antique Radios

God Bless America .. 09-11-2001 .. United We Stand

Welcome to my website. This site is dedicated to the fixing up and restoring old tube radios. I always liked tube radios and when I was younger, I repaired t.v's and radios for family and friends. Around February 1997 I was surfing the web and I found out there was an antique radio club in my neighborhood. The club name is New Jersey Antique Radio Club and they are located in Freehold New Jersey. I went to one of their meetings and I knew immediately this club and hobby was for me. There are about 180 members with a great deal of knowledge in tube radios. I now presently own about 130 radios ranging from the 1920's to the 1960's.
I am presently restoring a Philco 39-116 Console Radio. I had purchased this radio for $100.00 with the Mystery Dial. The radio is in pretty good all original condition. The chassis was all original underneath. I replaced the electrolytics and a bunch of the other capacitors. The radio sounds great so far. The next step is to get the Mystery Dial to work. I will be working on that soon so I can put the chassis back into the cabinet. This console might be for sale in the near future.
