This forum is for the use of all who appreciate the radios and associated items made by Eddystone Radio in the UK.
Much Eddystone kit is still in use by those who appreciate the looks, the classic mechanical and electrical design, and the superb operating "feel" of these radios.
Although the Eddystone Users Group has now closed, there is a comprehensive website giving a wealth of useful information on the Eddystone Company, its history and characters, and an archive to include sales and service data, plus all copies of the Eddystone Users Group magazine "Lighthouse". See http://www.eddystoneusergroup.org.uk/
For over 50 years, the Eddystone brand was the radio of choice for Governments, Armed Forces and Maritime Services worldwide.
Please use this site for discussion, reminiscences, anecdotes, sales and wants, indeed anything relating to Eddystone equipment and associated topics.
