I always stock all kinds of old radio ephemera including manuals, literature, schematics, technical sheets, books, magazines (old), and catalogs. I might just have paperwork covering your older radio equipment!

Some of the old vintage radio parts I stock include vacuum tubes, capacitors, old radio knobs, antique radio chassis, meters, semiconductors, dials and controls. From time to time I also carry test equipment, rectifiers, and diodes. Some of the old radio brand names include manufacturers such as Motorola, General Electric (aka Harris, Macom, Ericksson, Kenwood, E F Johnson, Uniden, Standard-Vertex, RCA, Radius, and others. I also sell complete radio units in working order including Shortwave and amateur equipment and accessories.

MDMRADIO started in 1990, however, we were forced to abandon our brick and mortar operation in November 2006. We maintained a web presence until misfortune caused our website to be shut down. This new site has many more useful features and interesting reference links which we had wanted to include before and now can bring a more useful and entertaining visit.

For over 40 years I've enjoyed buying, selling and trading radios and parts. It's been a great experience and I've made many friends along the way. As always, if you have any questions, just ask and I will respond promptly. Contact me thru the website, or call 773-775-8094 or send an email to

You can see what I currently have in inventory by clicking on the category links at the left. My main categories are broken down into the following areas: Portables, Mobiles, Base Stations, Repeaters, Parts & Components, Test Equipment, Reeds & Filters, Manuals, Books, Special Receivers and scanners, Audi-Video, and Miscellaneous.

I am associated with several collector's organizations and someone is always looking for something. If you can't find what you are looking for, please contact me through email or via phone and let me know. Chances are, I might have it, but haven't listed it yet. For your convenience and online safety, everything can be purchased through my secure shopping cart. Please review my terms and conditions regarding payment and shipping options.

Any amateur passing thru the Chicago area can find me on CFMC VHF 146.16/146.76 (1B) or 448.75/443.75 (2A) almost daily. We'd be happy to hear from you.

Thank you,

OPEN Most Days About 9 or 10. Occasionally as early as 7 but, some days as late as 12 or 1. WE CLOSE about 5:30 or 6 - occasionally about 4 or 5, but sometimes as late as 11 or 12. Some days or afternoons, we aren’t here at all, and lately I’ve been here just about all the time. Except when I’m someplace else, but I should be here then, too.
