I have an AWA valve radio in working order but the volume is very low and the speaker and aerial wires need resoldering (barely hanging on).

Who is the best person to get in contact with to fix these items?

I can repair valve radios.  Is it a car radio or a home radio?
But I'm in Sydney.

Wouldn't it be easier to throw that thing away? I had one just like it. I struggled with it. Then I just threw it away.

  Nostalgic Radio. 63 Silverdale Road EAGLEMONT, Vic. They have rebuilt radios for me, with AM/FM & ipod connectivity, all in the original cases. Good to deal with. Kevin.

FYI all: The radio's repaired.  It wasn't difficult.

Glad you didn't "just throw it away" as suggested.  Roll Eyes

Good save.

Cheers,
