Many thanks to 'Nick The Dentist' for kindly sending me an instruction book and guarantee dated 1965, for a Dynatron Carnival GR8 record player, one of which I have, which I restored some time ago. A nice addition to go with it.

Many thanks to David (Terrybull) for sending me a very nice Sony DAB/FM portable radio. Now I can listen to Gold while getting on with fitting out my workshop :)

A nice example of Sony design, David and I really appreciate all the care you'd obviously taken in its packaging/marking up/consigning. :thumbsup:

Best wishes

Thankyou to Guy for supplying 10v reference chip en route yesterday. I shall now refer to the data sheet for an appropriate input voltage- and which pins to use!

The (Adafruit precision voltage chip) from Pimoroni i referred to had 2 outputs @ 2.048v and 4.096v, what with postage and packing it got to 10.50, but mini-board mounted and suitable to be driven from a PP3.
