Stephens Tru-Sonic P52R 1940's

My good friend the Tubehoarder is pulling some really rare woofers to send to ebay in the coming weeks. This is one of my favorites a rare Stephens. The driver has been tested and works. If your interested I can let you know when it hits the ebay.. I may regret offering that but what the hell. I may be a bidder as well. 
It is in great shape.
 Notice the location it was built in the LA factory which means it was 1947 or earlier. This makes it a rare one.

WWII Tube Electronics Training Film

I love these old training films I'm still pretty green so these are very helpful.
This WWII training film familiarizes radio operators with Vacuum Tubes. As the film explains, these are the devices used in radios that control electric current between electrodes in an evacuated container. Vacuum tubes mostly rely on thermionic emission of electrons from a hot filament or a cathode heated by the filament. The grid and filament forming the tube are explained, as are some basic circuits, and a couple of electronics packages are shown.
