New member in the greater Sacramento area just want to drop by and say hello. I'm an audio hobbyist who like to tinker and try out new -to-me gear, especially vintage gear. I like RF as well, not just AF. I have a number of hobbies, but of all the hobbies I have dabbled in, I would have to say audio is the most rewarding and the most cost effective. My current gear include Carver, Sansui, Kenwood, JBL, Altec, Infinity, Pioneer, among others. Among my upcoming projects, I bought a used pair of Altec 9849-8A speakers in fully working condition a while back, and am planning to some improvements to them (at least recap and repaint) when time allows. Yeah, finding the time to do this project and other projects is a major challenge for me. I'm still in the info collecting phase at the moment, and hoping to learn as much as I can from this site when I finally get around the Altec to do the actual improvement work.
