First, thanks for doing what you do. Without you guys, we'd all get lost in the woods!

Second, I was hoping you could help me identify and price out some radio gear that was uncovered recently during a move out of the Quonset Air Museum, which had to move due to a partial facility collapse. Everything has been safely moved already, however, some stuff can't be moved into a new facility and is being sold to help raise money to find that new facility.

Not sure how to post pics here, but there's a few shots here: http://www.slapdashracing.com/#!for-sale/c9zr Plenty more shots available as well if you're really interested.

Some cool stuff, mostly from Vietnam-era, but some goes back to WWII and Korea.

I'd appreciate any info you can swing my way. Proceeds, after admin fees, go to the museum.

Thanks for looking!

See if you can find a local chapter of the Commemorative Air Force or other war bird group. They should be able help with the aircraft stuff. See if there is a Collins Radio group in your area. There is here in the Dallas area but then, there is a large Collins Radio/Rockwell International factory/office here. By the way, this group here recently built all new radio equipment for FiFi, the only flying B29. They can help with the radio stuff because a lot of radio equipment was made by Collins. Failing in a specific Collins Radio restoration group, look for your local radio club and see if they can put you in touch with someone. PM me and I might be able to find more information.
