VHS Equipment Review - Vacuum Tubes


#1

We have a box of vintage vacuum tubes. Most look to be about 30-40 years old.

Not sure how useful they are here. Perhaps they should live with someone or some group that restores vintage electronics.

If we decide to get rid of these please let me go through them as I need some old tubes for a vintage radio I’m repairing. I can also make sure the rest go on to the vintage radio museum folks. I’ve voted “toss” as I can’t see a use for them in the space (not just because of my replacement tube lust). :slight_smile:


#3

Is there any possibility of having a vacuum tube workshop/meetup or something? I mostly just check every now and then for signs of vacuum tube related stuff happening at VHS (plus a few other things). I would love to draw on the tube knowledge of the wider community! Thanks!


#4

Let’s make a working RF Tube Amplifier! So keep them to have a workshop/meet/unconference on Amplifiers, HAM Radio, etc.

I’m assuming that by “toss” you mean landfill. In that case I’m voting “keep”, although if there’s anyone that wants them (member or not), they should be free to take them.


#6

I love your enthusiasm; can you host a night with a plan/schematic so this actually gets done?


#7

I am no RF guru, so I will gather some info. on this from other members who are experts and take it from there. It will be after the graphene project that we will be doing.

In this case, “toss” means donated to either Freegeek or the Hackery.
