There is some resurgence. Fixing 60s era auto radios can keep one
busy. The knowledge to trouble shoot those old transistor circuits is
fading fast and the people who are restoring to 100 points need working
radios. I have (name completely escapes me) the schematics for many Delco
Radios, most of which can be tested with only a VOM. Yes, I know how to
test and repair tube and transistors circuits.
