Welcome to the home page of the AI4FR website. I have created this web site in the hopes that it will help other collectors. It is my goal that while you are here that you will be able to become more familiar with an item in your collection.
Amongst the collection of items shown here, you will see numerous radios and other electronic gadgets as well as become introduced to some of my other hobbies which include collecting WWII items, Firearms, Coins, Stamps, Arrowheads and numerous other keepsakes and junk. I will also list some of the projects that I am involved with on here as well.
While visiting here, I hope to be able to pass on to you some basic electronic theory, radio restoration, gunsmithing and a host of other useful tidbits. In doing so we will be learning together. Please feel free to contact me at any time with comments and suggestions on how I can improve. Even if it is a negative comment about the site, I would still be interested in hearing from you. Your thoughts and comments are very important to me.
The site is under MAJOR construction and still in its infancy. For the last few months I have been busy improving the descriptions of some of the items in the radio section. I am also adding new pages on a regular basis. The website is now up to 274 pages!!! Please check back often for the latest additions. Click on any of the menu boxes above to have a look around and please let me know what you think. I need your help to improve.
I am always in the market to add to the collection. If you have an item that you no longer want and feel it is some thing that I would be interested in, then please send me an email. No matter how big or how small the item may be. Even firearms transfers are fine and will be conducted in strict compliance of the law. I hold a valid federal firearms license to conduct the transfer. I do not and will not turn around and resale the item. I am simply a person that cares deeply for and wishes to preserve history to help ensure that it is never forgotten.
This goes without saying the honor it is to be able to talk with any veteran. Thank you again for my freedoms. It is because of those that serve that allow the rest of us to sleep safe in our beds at night.
Please direct all firearms related questions to a firearms forum I created several years ago. The true experts on these items frequent that site and are much more knowledgeable then myself. There are specific areas on the site which is designed to cover most classifications of older arms. The link to the site is as follows - The Curio and Relic Firearms Forum.
Please me if you find any errors on this web site or simply wish to say hello. I thank you in advance for your understanding and support, and look forward to hearing from you soon.
As you read through this website I am working on receiving a signal from the furthest distance ever recorded. Yes, even from much further than any of the spacecraft sent from earth. You can do this too. In my spare computing time I am running a program called BOINC. In short, I am crunching numbers for the SETI project. If that does not interest you, other projects to choose from include, finding cures for cancer, HIV, malaria, and other diseases, plotting out the milky way, deciphering a German WWII enigma message, looking for pulsars, and so much more. I am actually involved with several projects. Join in on the fun and let your PC help mankind when you are not using it. You never know what you might be the first to discover.
God Bless you all.
In His service,
