Radio Twenthe

Yesterday we went to the city of Den Haag to do some shopping.
Since I ran out of unetched PCB-materiaal and miniature switches I took the opportunity to buy some at the only electronics shop in the neighbourhood: Radio Twenthe at the Stille Veerkade.




Till some years ago in the area we had some nice shops with electronics: Radio Ster, Stuut & Bruin in Den Haag, Kok in Leiden, Radio Display in Utrecht. Since the lack of interest in homebuilding has increased and the possibility to buy components on the internet (eBay, marktplaats, dx.com etc. etc.) all those shops dissappeared.




As far as I remember Radio Twenthe has always been there; the owner told me that around 1960 the business started. They still have a large collection of vacuum tubes, DIY building kits, loudspeakers, switches, transformers, wiring etc.


You can approach Radio Twenthe via their (limited) website:

  1. Hallo Ron, feest der herkenning. Ik heb bij hem eens een transformator van 120 W gekocht voor mijn eerste zelfgebouwde audio stereo versterker. Het was in de tijd van LA woman van The Doors 1971 ofzo. Waar blijft de tijd? hi 73, Bert

  2. Haha, ja leuk. Trafoos heeft ie nog steeds in overvloed. In 1971 zette ik m'n eerste stappen in de lagere school. Kan me nog vaag iets met Beatles herinneren :-)
