Repair and restore your own antique radio equipment

Interested in repairing an old tube radio that you purchased at a garage sale? How about connecting your ipod to it?

Read this briefing to see how it is done.

(this briefing is for vacuum tube radios that use power supply transformers. it is not for 'hot chassis' or transformer-less radios. i suggest staying away from these or using an isolation transformer when working on them)

The author is not responsible for any injury or death that may occur due to working on antique radio equipment. Antique radios are dangerous because of the high voltages inside of the radio equipment. Do not work on antique radios unless you have proper training or experience. Serious injury or death can occur. These briefings are for reference only.
