It would be nice to find someone new to the hobby in close proximity to Anaheim CA. Someone who might benefit from a tube tester (Precision 912), sig gen, Iso trans, Variac and some caps. Looking for someone with radio interest and perhaps not a budget. Not looking for a flipper. Some of you oldies out there may have someone that fits the bill. I'm just getting out of the hobby.
Best, Jerry

Still looking for a newbie in the hobby with limited resources for the hobby to give this stuff to. Sorry but pickup only. I can't believe how hard it is to give stuff away!

Have you asked Barry Dagestino or Mike Simpson if they know of such a new member to the hobby?

Jerry,

I know a guy up here in NorCal who could use that stuff. I come down that way every few months and should be down in a month or so. He is a ham and is starting to work on tube gear. Currently he is working on a Hallicrafters Skyrider. PM me if that sounds like a fit.

Thanks for offering. The same was offered a couple of years ago in the Denver area, some of which turned out rather needed. Nothing was flipped, l gave the excess to the local radio club. Craig

Jerry,

If you're in the area, you may want to contact Orange Coast College. Their Electronics Technology program may have deserving students who can benefit from your equipment.

Thanks all, still waiting for a local or soon contact to take away this gift for someone in need.
FSM if someone from the local club fits the bill, have them contact me. I don't wish to go out and explore for people.
Best, Jerry

Seems the original responder is back in touch and hopefully the stuff is off to a new home. Hard to give away stuff! The Precision has the adaptors for compactron tubes and the 9 pin to 9 pin for I have no idea!

It seems to be a sign of the current state of our hobby, unfortunately.
