Group Description

[Last updated on: Wed Oct 8 22:43:27 1997]
Welcome to the R-390 mailing list!

Please save this message for future reference.

The R-390 Mailing List is for the discussion of the features, operating,
troubleshooting, repair, maintenance, improvements and general lore
related to the R-390 family of radio receivers which were developed for
military and government applications. This group includes the R-390,
R-390A, R-392 as well as their variants such as the R-389 and R-391.
These radios were designed and developed by the Collins Radio Company of
Cedar Rapids Iowa but were made by different manufacturers under various
contracts spanning almost 35 years from 1950 to 1984.

The List administrators are concerned with the growth of speculators and
profiteers which have been pervading the vintage radio hobby of late.
Consequently we have adopted the following guidelines on a temporary
basis in the hope that the abuses seen elsewhere will not occur here.
FOR SALE, WANTED and SWAP postings by PRIVATE PARTIES are acceptable but
not encouraged due to the many other alternative outlets for that
information. Furthermore, we request that such posts be limited to
the equipment under discussion. Commercial postings, announcements and
SPAM are NOT welcome. If in doubt of an article's suitability, DON'T

It is hoped that all subscribers will contribute material to the R-390
List as it is the knowledge, wisdom and experience that will make t
his list a useful, informative and valuable resource.

The advisory board of the R-390 List are:

Co-administrators are Chuck Rippel, WA4HHG, and Michael Crestohl, W1RC.

Historical Advisor is Tom Marcotte, N5OFF.
