Thanks to Alan (Goldie99) for sending me heated shoe insoles just for the price of postage! The heat's concentrated right where it should be- at the front end. NiMH's on the cards i think- high charge density and the higher self discharge rate won't matter.

A huge thank-you to David T (David G4EBT) for the beautifully-constructed and laid-out FM-AM converter.

Not only did it arrive almost instantly, but the way it's put together is to professional standards (better, in fact, than commercial products as it uses "proper" solder), and it's finished off with an informative leaflet describing its operation etc. Truely plug-and-play too, apart from the PIC.

I'm very impressed, and very grateful.

THANK YOU, David :)

Although I always thank the people concerned either by PM or email I forget about posting here, so my apologies to all I have missed in the past but here are thanks to the latest members who have helped me,

to pmmunro for saving my Avo 8 from the scrapheap,
to Wavey Dipole for the Avo Minor case,
to Steve Bell for the DVD recorder and for him transporting it to Ed Dinnings house,
and to Ed Dinning for transporting it to Golborne for me.

Many Thanks to All

A big thanks to Bob_Moss for the Sony stereo system I have just collected from him. It was good of him to remember me since it was originally offered back in January and claimed by another member. This fell through so it came to me!

Thanks again Bob,

Thanks to Paul Stenning for having a site Privacy and Cookie Policy which is easy to read, easy to understand and doesn't hide behind vague generalities. It is clear what you get if you are happy with it, and what still works if you don't accept it.

A few days ago I read the corresponding document from IEEE; you might think that such a member organisation would be similarly clear but it wasn't.

Thanks to Kevin (kevinB) for personally delivering the lovely Philips radio to me for less than a decent courier would charge, and for a very enticingly-priced, well-restored radio too. Very nice to meet you too.

Grateful thanks to Electronicskip for the Roberts radio and 1100 man for the two Grundig tape recorders collected at the NVCF today.
Good to meet both you gentlemen and hope you had as good a day as I had. Bought far too much but so difficult to refuse a bargain isn’t it?

Thanks again chaps!

A special thanks to David, Captainpugwash who has just supplied me with a loudspeaker cabinet and ‘speakers for a combo amp project. He spotted the fact that I was unable to collect a similar item offered by another member and so very kindly supplied just what I wanted FOC.
Thanks very much David, really good of you!

Many thanks to George (Buggies) for the Russell Hobbs kettle parts to repair the fault reported here:
https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...d.php?t=135758

Being from a soft water area, George's element was in much better condition than my calcium encrusted one so it's better than I could have hoped. So quiet and quick!

I've kept the original faulty switch and may try to dismantle it out of academic (& Forum) interest but it strongly resembles a round tuit...

Thanks again, George.

Thanks to both Dickie, and Valvepower

Dickie for dropping the interstage choke off with me today - great stuff
