On behalf of the Broadcast Television Technology Trust I would like to thank all those forum members who have helped the MCR21 project. There are too many too name and there is always the possibility that my memory would embarrass me by forgetting someone.

We will have a demo table at Retrotech ( #36) please come by and say hello.

Our BBC OB van is looking splendid on the outside, but much still to do on the inside. One of our regular volunteers has created a number of videos which can be viewed on our YouTube page (search for MCR21)

Thanks to "Electrical" Stan for sending me a copy of the PM5544 Manual and for all the useful information he posted elsewhere on the Forum regarding Caption Lettering Programming, etc!

There's tons for me to study, especially as noises are being made for adding the PM5544's Coloured Brackets and the 'Colourless Bits" to the M.B. 1979 Test Card Generator!

Many thanks to ScottBouch for the meters safely received. Surprised that there was no other interest, perhaps digital ones have more attraction these days….

Gratefully received!

Thanks to Woodchips for the B&K amplifier, which I collected this morning.

(Looks like it should be easy to get going, but I'm not doing anything till I've replaced a pair of well cracked RIFAs across the 160V AC lines...)

And my thanks to Member Gingpeakin also for the Mullard PAL Colour TV System and Circuits Book!

. . .Alas to say I'd never get a dual standard CTV in my friend's house I'm afraid, so I'm going to do the next best thing I've got room for, designing a special unit to generate the special Philips PM5508 Decoder Alignment Test patterns!

Many thanks to Adrian (agardiner) for the neckband radio, going to be useful. Once you have used wire less ‘phones you never want to go back to wired ones!

Also thanks to Les (TowerRadio) for sending the mega caps so quickly, going to look impressive in any project.

A big thank you to Alan, AnalogueMan for the Casio TV. I think that the hard part will be getting the BBC to restart analogue transmissions….;D

Re: The Thanks Thread
 
My very grateful thanks to Member WaveyDipole who very generously donated me three Tektronix 468 PCB assemblies to help me repair the '468 I imported from America that turned out to have a fatal self–test failure, caused by an internal short–circuit within the original TRW1007PC Video DAC dragging the +5 V to about 4.1 V, resulting in failure!

I have fitted the replacement Graphics panel and the supply line is now OK – there are still other analogue faults to look at, but I've got a carcass with a spare A15 Interface Board for these!

You are a Star, Sir!

Thanks to Rob "whiskas" for a very well-protected package of useful vintage parts- there are some commercial operators who could take worthwhile lessons from him on how to package and protect posted items properly!

A big thank you to Member Jac from the Netherlands who scanned me the Philips PM3055 Oscilloscope PCB layout drawings with the pink and grey tracking tints – none of the available online or paper ones I can find show these and the scans were absolutely pristine and pin–sharp!

Thank you Craig Sawyers for offering and carefully packing an aluminium side panel for my ‘Startronic’ DC Power Supply.

I acquired this useful PSU many years ago, minus said panel. Now, finally it’s complete.

I would like to thank Aaron (Aaron_555) very much indeed for his kind gift of a Philips CD104. I will coax it back to life - it's going to be fantastic to have a 104 to play CD's on again after all these years. We will treasure it.

Best wishes,

Steve.
