  1. Looks quite modern to me – but I know very little about electronics and don’t won’t to admit that something I remember might put me in the antique catergory!! Happy weekend.

  2. Now that’s a genuine antique – LOL
    You know I read that our ordinary laptops have more computerized gizmos in them than the first flight to the moon.
    Pardon my use of high tech language 😉

  3. My ex-husband is a ham radio operator. He found some giant tubes at a junk place and sold them for $50 each back in the 70’s when radio enthusiasts were using them to amplify their ham signals. One night he was in the college lab and got his hands across them with a significant electric charge… had to go to the ER. Hmmmm. Come to think of it, perhaps that is where he started going wrong.

    Haven’t seen these in a long time.

  4. Excellent photo: but you got me chuckling with your caption. In fact, I had to check out your porfile to see how old you are! I am buying any tubes I see at flea markets, etc. Not going out of my way, just picking them up for you youngsters to look at so they can see the evolution of their computers! Have a wonderful week!

  5. I have seen this before but I just can’t recall where they used it for. Am not even sure if this is a lightbulb or a fuse.

    Cheers!

  6. Now that looks like an antique item. Looking at that picture reminds me of the movie Frequency.
    Excellent choice.
