  1. I've been in electronics since I was a teenager starting with a crystal set. Was an RT in the Navy and proceeded to TV service until retirement. In computers, I started with a
    Commodore 64. graduated to an Amiga (unbelievaby great computer-still superior to a pc) and now am stuck with Windows and all of its problems. Ah Well!!

    Hello faucon22,
    welcome to Techspot. Crystal Radio set brings back memories. Do you happen to remember those Curtis Mathis TV commercials starring the crusher? I thought being in TV repair, you might have dedicated them to memory.
