These pages deal with surplus military radio, also called ex-equipment or dump as we say in the Netherlands. As a military radio addict I collect, restore and operate these radio's. How to obtain them ? Well, quite simple.....there are several stores and dealers in the Netherlands.The prices are cheap compared with the U.S.A. and the UK surplus dealers. Sometimes I import things from Germany, Belgium or France to get a complete radioset. Radio flea-markets or radio-rallies are also a good source for this equipment. Beside this there is always the Internet......... You see, travelling and a computer are very helpfull in finding the right "green stuff" !

The membership of The Surplus Radio Society can't be omitted as a serious military radio collector.Four times a year the SRS releases a magnificent and glossy magazine with loads of info about green surplus equipment.Apart from this there are meetings and field-days around the year. At these meetings you can test your equipment, get info or help to run your green friends, have an eye-ball qso with other members, listen to lectures about special green items a.s.o. There are about 400 members of the SRS in the Netherlands. One thing I almost forgot : apart from the native language which is used in the SRS-Bulletin there are also additions in English. Pse visit the SRS-pages for further info (see links).

If there are any questions about these pages, pse contact me! I always like to get in touch with other green radio enthusiasts ! (but, after 7500 hits....I experienced this several times, don't contact me about supplying an armoured battalion with VHF-rigs, frequency-hopping UHF-radio's or special crypto-equipment, I'm a collector, not a trader in military radio's........)
