Radios and turntables must be my main hiperfixations, I collect them since I was fourteen years old. I haven't
posted yet about this since I have a few traumas talking about this.
My goal is to make all of them 100% functional, but I don't have time nor technical knowledge about electronics,
in the meanwhile I'm investigating.
What are radios?
Well radios are sound communication systems who transmite via radio waves. If you were born after 1920 you
probably know what are them.
What are turntables?
It is a device to play music through vinyls or acetate disks. Vinyls can come in different formats and sizes,
being the most common ones 7" 45 RPM and 12" 33 1/3 RPM, but it is also
possible to find 10" 78 RPM and 16 RPM were made on 7" and 12", but they are incredibly hard to find.

||Big and heavy AM only radio with pick-up. The most interesting part about this is it has labeled most of
chilean radio stations who were active in the 50's. None of them exist anymore because FM Radio replaced all
of them. So its kind

to a pick-up turntable.
