The Glowbugs e-mailing list covers the hands-on use of vacuum tube technology in amateur radio equipment of the bygone era. Home-built equipment from the early 1920's through the 1970's is within its scope.
The term "Glowbugs" is thought to have originated from the appearance of vacuum tubes when the heater filament is giving the appearance of a Glowbug.
All aspects of design, building, testing, operating, and troubleshooting such equipment is appropriate for this group.
A lot of the discussions center on homebrewing of tube amateur radio equipment.
