RCA TRK-120 and Andrea KT-E-5 at Estes Auctions - July 26

Here is what the owner says about the sets:

The TRK cabinet was restored by Old World Furniture in Columbus, Ohio and the set was electronically restored by me. Has original tubes and 12AP4 (good illumination with "hole in the middle"). An extra 12AP4 substitute (the one Steve McVoy had made a few years back) will either sell with the set or as a separate lot.

The Andrea has also been electronically restored by me and is in working condition with a 5BP4. A 5AP4 will either be in the lot or sold as a separate lot.

The Wisconsin Antique Radio Club Inc. would like to invite all television collectors to our swap meet on July 20, 2014.

Many members of our club also have an interest in TVs and related items, and we are aware there is a large concentration of vintage TV collectors in the Wisconsin and Northern Illinois area. We would like to have them join us in a combined Radio & Television swap meet. We will urge our club members to bring their TV related items to this meet, and hope that the invited TV collectors that attend will bring their goodies up for sale or trade. There is really only one TV swap that I know of, the one at the Early Television Museum Convention in May. This will be a second opportunity for those who perhaps couldn't attend the ETF meet, or found it too far to travel with items to swap.

To make this a success (and perhaps an annual special event) we need you folks to bring your TV items along to sell at this meet. It won't be a success if everyone shows up to buy, and no one brings anything to sell. Also be aware that you should make sure you have room to haul home some of the items you may find here. Too often I've heard "I'd sure like to buy this, but it won't fit in the trunk of my car".

I myself will be bringing at least 15 televisions along to sell, along with many other TV items including empty Admiral Bakelite cabinets (console & table model) and various parts and test equipment.

Anyone interested, please post here and encourage others to attend. Carpool if you have to. We would be glad to see you here.
