Gerard's Radio Collection

[Dept. of Computer Science] Gerard's Radio Collection

Contents of this Page

Read about our [top] Department and University. Here are some radios for SALE and radios I have sold. Have a look in my radio workshop.
I am reworking the site with frames. I try to keep the current stuff available as much as possible until the frames museum is ready, but some mess (such as dangling pointers) will be encountered. In due time everything should be fine again.

The Collection

Below you can click to view items of my collection. For each item there is a picture and technical description of the item. In some cases there is also a brief discussion of some part of radio history, technique, or usage.
