THIS IS THE FINAL ISSUE OF THE TRANSISTOR NETWORK. WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL OF YOU FOR GIVING US YOUR SUPPORT THESE PAST 5 YEARS. YOUR ENCOURAGEMENT AND INPUT MADE IT ALL POSSIBLE. WE SINCERELY HOPE THERE IS SOMEONE OUT THERE IN THE TRANSISTOR WORLD WITH THE DESIRE TO CONTINUE WHERE THE TRANSISTOR NETWORK HAS LEFT OFF.
THE HOBBY OF COLLECTING TRANSISTOR RADIOS HAS REALLY TAKEN OFF SINCE THE TRANSISTOR NETWORK WAS FIRST PUBLISHED, AND TRANSISTORS ARE NOW HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER AND RESPECTABLE COLLECTIBLES. IT IS GRATIFYING TO HAVE BEEN A PART OF THE GROWTH OF TRANSISTOR COLLECTING AND WE PLAN TO CONTINUE TO ADD TO OUR COLLECTION AS TIME GOES BY.
ALL OF US HERE AT THE "TN" WISH EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU A GREAT HOLIDAY SEASON AND A FANTASTIC TRANSISTOR COLLECTIBLE NEW YEAR!
