There is no better way to end a workweek then to restore a shortwave radio. A customer brought in this Zenith Trans-Oceanic that was bought new by his grandfather. Bringing this Zenith back to life put me in a space to make good decisions all weekend. Saturday I canceled cable TV and got a paper subscription to the NY Times. Sunday I got out the scientific calculator and worked on a power supply I’ve been designing. Those cheesy repair nerd T-shirts and stickers on E bay have it right, tubes rule.
