What's happening with Retro Radionics?

Post by DeLorean_4 »

Hi all,

Does anyone know what's happening with Retro Radionics? ( https://retroradionics.com/ )
I was going to buy some parts from them, but it doesn't look like the store page on their website has been working for about a couple of weeks.
Old direct links have not worked either.

The page you linked to opened okay for me.

There are four lights!
Step up to red alert. Sir, are you absolutely sure? It does mean changing the bulb :!:
Looking forward to summer being good this year.

It's just a main page that doesn't go anywhere is my point. You used to be able to source lots of new parts from these guys.

I tapped/clicked on the first joystick, that page opened. I used the two drop down selection menus to select a red colour for a ZX Spectrum, added it to "my bag". Tapped/clicked on the icon to go to my bag and it was listed there. I did not go any further though.

I presume you are unable to get that far?

Seems OK to me. I added a Spectrum keyboard membrane to the shopping bag.

Could it be a device / browser issue? Some web sites are all but unusable on my iPhone.

Yeah, some websites no longer work correctly with older browsers.

So, try another browser, or another computer or device.

It looks like they're back up now! :)

If I can, I'll delete this thread.
