Theodore and Milton Deutschmann opened a one-store retail and mail-order operation in the heart of downtown Boston. They chose the name, "Radio Shack," which was a term for the small, wooden structure that housed a ship's radio equipment. The Deutschmanns thought the name was appropriate for a store that would supply the needs of radio officers aboard ships, as well as "ham" radio operators.

Mark Rollins - Model Railroading

I enjoy model railroading - HO scale thank you. I build modules that vary in width anywhere from 1 foot to 3 feet, with lengths ranging from 3 feet to 8 feet. Each module has a separate setting (even different decades). I have completed a switching yard, a small industrial park, and a farm scene.

A dual alternating flashing light circuit. This project is best for mounting on a layout to light a crossing or ring a bell.
