Many Thanks for the efforts of Forum members Ron Bryan & Howard in the repair of my Roberts R200.

No doubt one of these gentlemen will be telling the tale as a Success Story.
The tin below shows the amount of life-expired/defective parts that were changed, so you can see that it wasn't just a new badge & a dose of shoe polish.
My own contribution to the job was minimal: Missing 'fixings'.

Re: The Thanks thread.
 
Belated thanks are owed to some very generous people on here, I've been hectic recently with young baby to look after and not being able to get back to the Uk too often!

Firstly Andy / Dr wobble for the box of tapes he took the time to send me a few months back, far more than I'd expected, what a gent.

Also to Mike Brett for mailing me the Grundig literature he so kindly offered FOC last month.

And to Jeremy valvecollector for the record deck parts he put aside for me which will serve me very well when I do up a beloved Bush unit!

Much appreciated, chaps. Best regards for 2014 to you and yours.

Very grateful thanks to Fred (fredporter65) for the IF transformer he sent over to get me out of my Christmas Crisis! Hope to get my Dad's Bush VHF90 back on MW in the near future.

Thanks again to everyone on the forum for help, advice and interesting conversation during 2013. All the best for the new year!

This is just to say a very, very warm hearted thank you to jim jobe for sending me a lovely selection of diodes and transistors.

The kindness I've had from all on here goes beyond words. I can't speak it just overwhelmes me and I can't get the words out.

Thank you all.

Dear UK Vintage Radio Repair & Restoration Discussion Forum

Just wanted to tell you how grateful I am to your Forum, though I'm not a member. Looking for any help I could to get my Roberts R606-MB working again, I found a thread dating back to 2007 about common problems. Turns out it was just a faulty mains/battery change-over switch. So problem identified and resolved. Many, many thanks.

As a complete contrast I also found this http://petemaxwell.wordpress.com/201...anding-repair/ - which you might find interesting, if a bit lengthy!

Best regards, and keep up the good work.

Huge thank you to Jim, user name G4XWDJim. I requested, asked for help with locating some specific B7G sockets. Jim promptly replied last night and invited me over today to pick some up, free of charge. When I arrived I was greeted with a cup of tea and huge supply of the sockets I very much needed. We went into Jim's fabulous workshop with my Roberts RMB where Jim made sure I came away with exactly what I needed. Being fairly new to the hobby, Jim had also put together two large boxes of spares for me to take away to build up my spares, hundreds of valves that I will be able to use for substitution and many types of transformers.

What a lovely suprise for a beginner to come away with. Just what i needed. Thank you so much for your generosity Jim. While I was there Jim also tested a suspect valve for me on his valve tester which luckily turned out good! This was great to watch having never seen this done before, Jim clearly explained to me how it worked and what we were looking for. I even got a brief tutorial on basic alignment while I was there. It was a great experience to meet Jim, he offered loads of encouragement and guidance on kit etc.

Thank you for all the parts and for your patience with a beginner. It was great for someone with your experience to spend that time with me.

Many thanks. Kind regards, Dave.

Thank you to the anonymous person in Tunbridge Wells who kindly sent me a CD-ROM of assorted radio and valve data and books that he/she found while clearing a deceased relative's house.

I will sort through it in due course, and quite a lot of it will probably find its way onto my free data site at www.vintage-radio.info so everyone benefits.
