Below you find a part of the tube collection Hank Kaczmarski.

I am an electrical engineer who had spent twenty five years maintaining a vintage television station. I initially maintained and later salvaged the old black and white orthicon cameras when they were replaced by color ones, have old RCA quad-tape tape machines and have all-tube vidicon film cameras stashed in some out-building somewhere on my farm. Some of that stuff might well show up in the Museum, but just doing the inventory of the tubes in each piece could take months. The last sixteen years have had a quite different focus, working at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications and now directing the Illinois Simulator Laboratory at the Beckman Institute of the University of Illinois. I've noticed that the components in supercomputers are considerably smaller than in the old tube cameras! (but maybe my eyesight has just aged?) I collect and will initially list in the Museum antique electronic musical instruments including carillons and organs; also WW2-era military electronics, tube-type test equipment and vacuum tubes. As time goes on, I will start to repair and list some of my collection of antique radios, but many of those items are in sufficient need of repair that they will have to wait for my retirement from the University.
