Default Other vintage electronic fora

I would be interested to know what other vintage electronic fora members use or know of. Even fora in other languages are worth noting.

No need to mention Golborne or VRAT as I know them both well.

I'm not familiar with non-UK forums, except for one with a narrower scope that occurs to me if you are interested in Narrowband Television, which is http://www.taswegian.com/NBTV/forum/.

Its a retrogaming site that deals with old videogames and old videogame consoles from the Sinclair zx81/spectrum/Atari 2600 era including programming/homebrew for old consoles and computers.from the 70s onwards

Yahoo has a number of radio-specific groups: the "PRC320" one is worth signing up to if you've got such a radio.

[Nice thing about the Yahoo groups is that you can get the 'digests' of group activity sent to you daily/weekly via email]

forums.qrz.com is also worth a look for discussion of assorted Ham-radio gear.

Classic Rotary Phones.com

Electrical Contractor.net has mostly modern USA stuff but has some vintage and non-USA sections.

Not a forum, but I grieve the loss of historyofpa website

Thanks for all your help.

It struck me, while searching for some data on here, that maybe another forum may have the answer to a problem or cover a model that is not normally found here. With the help of Google translate even fora not in English could be a worthwhile resource.

Eventually I will correlate all the data and publish it as a spreadsheet.

Though it's US-centric the "AM Forum"

http://amfone.net/Amforum/index.php

is worth looking at occasionally: there are plenty of old-timers there whose interest is in AM "Boat-anchor" type radios whether amateur, militaty or broadcast.
