Radio Jay checks out the RCA Globe Trotter radios!
« on: November 10, 2019, 0454 UTC »
Anyone still have one of these? Sadly, I no longer do.    https://radiojayallen.com/the-rca-globe-trotters-radios-unsung-heroes/
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.

Nope, my future wife's cat took mine out about '86. It was the top of the line model from '68 my Uncle got for my Grandpa. That thing was a beast on the low bands and MW.
