6 - I just want to get rid of ...

I have an old radio, TV, hi-fi component, electronic test set, electric instrument, vacuum tubes, or other related stuff that I just want to get rid of.

And we appreciate you contacting us rather than just trashing it. It is true that many old radios, other vintage electronics, and their parts and pieces are not worth much, especially if they are in poor condition. If it looks like junk, it probably is, but you never know when you might have "another man's treasure", and we do want the chance to check out what you have. Assuming you are in the Mid-Atlantic region (greater Washington, DC/Baltimore area) we can find a member who can visit you to take a look and let you know if it is worth us taking it off your hands. Frankly, we usually do so as a service, particularly if it isn't worth much. And we will let you know if it is valuable enough that it would be worth your while to sell it instead. Contact one of the volunteers listed in the second question above. If you live outside the Mid-Atlantic region we will try to hook you up with a local antique radio club. You might find one yourself on our links page under Other Clubs.
