In this occasional series, WSHU Chief Engineer Paul Litwinovich explores aspects of vintage radio. The subjects will range from the radio sets themselves to the people and technology that made it all possible. He'll talk about collecting, dating, and restoring these relics of yesteryear. Each article features a different vintage set with information about its place in the development of the electronic age. Some of the sets featured are from his own collection. 

Comments and questions are welcome.

This is one of the common questions that I am asked whenever the subject of vintage electronics crops up, which is often since I am an avid collector of antique electronic equipment.

Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines "antique" as 1: a relic or object of ancient times or of an earlier period than the present. 2: a work of art, piece of furniture, or decorative object made at an earlier period and according to many customs laws at least 100 years old. 3:Made in or representative of the work of an earlier period.
