Happy to be playing again

I got caught up in bidding frenzy and wound up buying this old Zenith Trans-Oceanic at the Saturday auction for forty bucks. I figured to put a kit in that bypasses the old capacitors and the power tube, but no need! It plays perfectly here, at least on AM...

Our friend sent me a picture from Costa Rica, while we are experiencing a cold snap. Just good timing I guess. Got this text while standing in line at Costco. Teresa asked about the weather there, and I replied (Just as we got to checkout) “Well, the monkey’s not...
