RCA TRK-12. It's time to "thin the herd". It is becoming apparent that I will not have time to restore and fully appreciate many of the radios and TVs I have in my collection so I am selling some of my sets. This TRK-12 is an excellent set. Picture tube lites up. Cabinet is in what I consider excellent condition with only minor scratches. I restored the radio supply with NOS cloth wire, etc but have gone no further with the restoration. If interested please contact me by email or phone. Located in TX. Fred, 361-877-4000, fredh at pakratz dot com (8/6/15)

Bob Paquette, of the Microphone Museum, is looking for one of the mechanical television sets that Peter Yanczer used to sell. He's hoping that someone might have one they're willing to part with so he can include it as part of the display in his museum, which encompasses much more than just microphones. Contact Bob at 414-645-1672. (8/8/14)
