A massive Thank you goes to Shuttle,
whom not only kindly offered FOC a couple of Fergy TX manuals (in absolute pristine condition too :thumbsup:) on here, But also posted them out to me FOC as well which I thought was incredibly generous of him, excellently well packed too I might add. :thumbsup:

Thanks once again Shuttle, at least have a couple of forum :beer: on me.
Cheers,
Baz

Many thanks to Guy Westcliff for bringing the KB AR21 safely northwards.

And to Mike, Crackle, for the set. It's one I've always fancied, being given one as a kid (6) it was what started me going on radio and electronics. I've been looking at little details that snapped into recall, and I've been smiling like a right idiot.

Wonderful

Thanks to @Llama for the Radiospares push-pull/QPP output-transformer which arrived here safely a couple of days back.

It'll be put to good use - probably as a 'modulation' transformer in a Codar AT5-clone I'm thinking of building.

Cheers!

Re: The Thanks Thread
 
Usually, it's a "Thank you" for receiving a much needed item. But not in this case. My many thanks to Frank - Nuvistor - for his idea that if the RTCs are not the same on two network-connected PCs, one will not 'see' the other.
O.K., so it may have been an 'off-the-wall' idea, but it fixed the problem. All-in-all, just goes to show that sometimes a 'Really? - I doubt it!' :-/ suggestion is actually right on the money. :-) There is clearly a moral here . . . .

Many thanks to WHISKAS TERRY BULL STEVE HERTZ and 1955 APPREW all of whom have forwarded much needed items to me with a professional standard of packaging and a good sense of humour. I'm working from more recent entries in the PM list so apologies but similar appreciation to anyone that I've inadvertently overlooked in this message!

Thanks to Ed
 
Belated Thanks to Ed (Dinning) for a boxful of feedthrough capacitors of various sizes. They are all super high- spec components and will be a big help in the build of my current major project.

Thanks again for your generosity, Ed , both with giving freebies and with abundantly -given practical advice , particularly around the materials science aspect of a build .

Cheers!

Al
