Bardwell's is still there, only 300ft from the old premises but now on the main Abbeydale Road. Alas, the junk's a bit more modern and trashy, but I'm sure the old guy in there's the same young guy I knew in the '60s! SJB, Sheffield

Max, what took you so long to find that place? You are trying to think of either Webb or W&W Electronics on Clinton Street. It's too late to buy the 1920s radio on display but you can still look at it.

Nope -- I'm sure you are right -- I'm still reeling from the shock (I would have sworn it was PW not PW)

@radionut - I think the reply only workd for a few levels else the columns get very thin (this used to happen...!) I also learned a lot from the "In your workshop" columns, they were very instructive. I had quite a few copies of the Radio Constructor - it was another good mag from the old days....

Hi David, I can't see a "Reply" tab on your recent posting but you're spot on with Dick and Smithy being in the Radio Constructor: their exploits were related in the "In Your Workshop" column and I learned a lot from them.

Wasn't the Radio Constructor the one that used to have the Dick and Smithy stories about the apprentice Radio/TV tech (Dick) being taught by his boss (Smithy)? Used to enjoy those.

Ax-man surplus (http://ax-man.com/) in the Twin Cities is always a lot of fun. I put together a TV remote control (read: wired solenoid-based channel button pusher) for my dad from Ax-man parts back in high school. It even sort of worked.... ;) They have scads of stuff, not just electronics. I just about bought a pair of airline seats as college dorm furniture, but unfortunately didn't have any friends with a pickup truck to haul them to Chicago. Ah well.

No, poor memory. 304TL filament is 125W. I was thinking of something else (35T, maybe?). http://www.alumrocktech.com/304tl.shtml

By the way, your transmitting tube looks a lot like a 304TL/TH, or something similar but a bit bigger. Those are transmitting tubes capable of plate dissipation of a few hundred watts. Friends of mine used to make decorative mantelpiece displays out of tubes of this class, actually lighting the filaments. Some are fairly bright, but all have a nice warm glow. The power requirements are generally too high to leave them on as night-lights, though ;-) . The 304TL filament is, IIRC, somewherein the 30W range.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
