Before contacting us, please observe the following:
1. We are neither an electronics school, nor a remedial science class. The content of this website
assumes a basic understanding of 20th century electronics and the physical sciences.
2. We do not accept submitted photographs, no matter how nice they are. Our site only includes devices
currently or previously held in the VTA collection, and all of our photographs are taken in-house.
3. We are not a custom design service. Although we have done custom work in the past, those services
are no longer available.
4. We are not a datasheet archive. If it's not on the site, it's not available.
5. We are not an industrial supplier. Please do not request price quotes for parts, as such requests
will be ignored. Everything we currently have available for sale may be purchased through our store, and is only available for the price listed.
6. We are not a free appraisal service. If you want to know how much something is worth, or whether or
not it's collectible, please make use of eBay. If you simply want to know what something is, or how it works, we may be able to assist you.
7. We do not discuss consumer electronics, with rare relevant exception. We have little interest
in vintage tube radios, televisions or similar. We are also not particularly interested in amateur (ham) radio. Nobody here has a call sign.
8. We do not want your old junk, unless it's really good old junk. Please do not e-mail us in the hope of finding a good home for your
dead grandmother's vintage microwave oven. We primarily work with obsolete military and industrial electronics hardware.
