Thank you! 73

UPDATE: January 2024. over winter, I'm adding more catalogs as there are so many people visiting and looking at them, it's very humbling.

I’m pleased to announce that I will be hosting several websites dedicated to the hobby of radio. The purpose of this site is to have a digital record of vintage Heathkit catalogs and manuals. This is good for a walk down memory lane as well as a reference of information all located on one website.

I’m currently looking for donations to be scanned and placed on the site for the world to enjoy. Don’t let these treasures go to the dump or for recycling. If you wish to give them a good home and they are currently from a non-smoking environment, please let me know by sending a quick email to me and I will be more than happy to place your name on the site if I use your donations.

P.S., if you have any other radio related (Radio Shack, Allied etc) catalogs, flyers, or anything you think should be preserved,) please don’t hesitate to send them my way so I can scan them for the world to see.

Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.

This site is dedicated to the memory of my father and to the millions of people all over that loved to create and muse, not be idle and amused. When I look at the covers alone it takes me back to an era that is far different to what we are living in today. As they say, those were the good ol days.

How the years have passed and to think that one time our fathers or grandfathers used to build modern electronics from a kit right in their basements. Now, some people can’t even figure out how to turn on a computer let alone build one.
