. . .My grateful thanks to Matt for all his immense amount of hard work scanning the Philips PM5570 Video Test Generator and all his other PTV Manuals and ROM Images in his GitHub Repositories – this is valuable and irreplaceable information that would be impossible to find elsewhere!

You are a Star, Sir!

Great thanks to Jeremy MORVB,

For taking the time to catalogue, sort & pack all those CV valves & CRT's into box trays, a numatic task indeed, so hopefully all going to be used or as spares.

Thanks to Scott (ScottBouch) for the large diameter phono plugs that safely arrived this morning. They will come in handy to repair some heavy duty phono cables where the phono plugs are in poor condition.

Just thought that I would add my thanks to Ben Dijkman for making such a splendid job of making a Philips logo badge emblem for my U.K Philips 371A radio. It has a different colour appearance to that of the usual Dutch Philips radios. Well done, Ben!

telstar 17th Apr 2024 3:53 pm

Re: The Thanks Thread
 
Ben was the only one that gave me some positive help in gaining this Philips emblem, and nobody else seemed to know what my requirements were! As I said, it is not a Dutch Philips model (371A), anyway it is on the radio now, and it looks great!

I’d like to thank David G4EBT for thinking of me as a new home for two virtually brand-new wind-up radios, and for generously sending me both sets for the price of postage. Thank you David, they’ll be looked after and I shall enjoy using them :clap::beer:

Many thanks to Andrew ('freespace') for the Grundig TK12 tape recorder. It's an interesting example of a class of machine that I didn't have in my collection and I'll get a lot of enoyment out of investigating it.

Many thanks to Bill (AC/HL) for the book RSGB handbook 2nd edition.

Thanks to Jon (eaglework) for the HP8443A Tracking Generator.

This is the low noise 110MHz one with counter for the analysers which fit the 140 scope frames. It's going to make the Kingdom ARS' analyser a lot easier to drive and able to do swept frequency measurements of gain/loss and VSWR.

Great packing, too.

Sincere thanks to agardiner aka Adrian for giving away a really nice Bush DAC cabinet and to Reelman aka Peter for bringing it towards me so I could pick it up today. Apologies our meeting was brief but we both had things to do. It’s been a big help.
