This forum is for exchange of information about gas-discharge readout tubes, such as Nixie tubes and similar devices (Panaplex readouts, Pixie tubes, Dekatrons, etc.), which were used in electronic numeric and alphanumeric displays in the 1950s - '70s. Today these tubes, available used or even new (old stock) from surplus dealers and collectors, are being illuminated again to make clocks and other unique displays, their neon glow providing a nostalgic Cold War era character. Secondary topics within our charter include other vintage digital display technologies, and circuit design.

This group became the home for the NEONIXIE-L group after we all decamped from the original one at Yahoo! All Yahoo! NEONIXIE-L members are welcome here - same rules apply... note that...

The group is also shadowed on .

We have tried moving the historical content of the Yahoo! group into this forum with the correct threading etc. with little success to date. As things stand, all of 2010 onward is here - the earlier threads from 2002 onward will follow in one form or another as and when our hosts can manage it.

The Files section is now at NEONIXIE-L Group File Store - upload files to the TEMP directory.
