Thanks to Station X for allowing me to be the next custodian of his very carefully packed ADI-AT600 amateur radio handheld.

I'll hopefully be taking it with me into some high-up locations shortly, weather allowing.

A big thank you to Rich (slidertogrid) for the push button for my Ekco A410 radio. Thanks to him the Ekco is now a viable restore prospect.

I had thought the chances of obtaining this button was about zero, but no.

I just off now to the garden centre for some rocking horse manure. ;D

Sincere thanks to the following forum members who generously donated Seno and Alfac rub-down PCB transfers to me, which are no longer produced:

Neil - 'Newlite'

I've made an appropriate donation to the local Hospice charity.

Re: The Thanks Thread
 
I just found this thread, I don't know how I missed it. I have quite a few thank yous built up! I want to thank Mike(cobalt blue) for the McMichael knobs, a perfect match and looking great. Mick(vinrads) very kindly sent me a variable capacitor for my radio build, thank you. Thanks to Richard(electronicskip) for the centrecom, it may be handy one day but for now at least it's safe from the bin! I also want to thank Trevor (trifocaltrev) for sending me a lot of documentation and circuit diagrams for my Loewe radio, very useful. A final thanks goes to everyone who has helped me out with my radio build so far and with my restoration projects, without this forum I wouldn't have known where to start. Also a thanks to Paul Stenning for creating this great forum in the first place! Thanks once again all.

Big thanks to John, GW4FRX for coffee and a cookie at Dobbies near Shrewsbury.

Oh, and the little Sony TV too ;D

Seems he was working with and only a few miles away, from my then employer's products more or less contemporaneously with my time in Bracknell. He also knew the term "Dim MANWEB"- perhaps the first person I've met since I left Bracknell who did!

Again for me too.
The post office "got" a couple but I still have a couple to play with.
I will be able to get some very good close ups with my new digital microscope and try them on my transistor test sets one new and one from the 1970s.

Many thanks to slatermethuen (Andy) for the very large number of Hi-Fi magazines he has given me today. We both had concerns over the car's suspension for the journey back but fortunately our fears were unfounded despite the best efforts of the enormous Nottingham speed bumps!
In addition the Tandberg recorder is in beautiful condition and am looking forward to its restoration.
Thanks again,
Peter.

Massive and profound thanks to Dave Wells M0CEM for the very rare transistors needed to revitalise a Radford amplifier. Thanks to him there's now a good chance of it all coming back together when all appeared lost.

The amateur spirit at its best.

Many thanks to Nickthedentist for (decluttering his house) his generous gifts of a Freeview set top box, freeview LCD telly and a freeview HDR. ;D

My new house will now have a main telly and a bedroom telly. Bedroom one will be the little Sony CRT one from GW4FRX of recent mention with the STB.

Huge thanks to everyone suggesting a fix for my Panasonic DVD recorder, especially "Red to Black" for the complete set of documentation which allowed me to find my way around the machine and thereby fix it.

A very grateful thank you to Tim Norris for the Maplin 10 section aerial which he kindly fetched from Maplins and sent to me.And would only accept a donation to a cancer charity next time I am in town.

Great aerials its just a pity Maplin no longer have warehouse stock as they just drop in I used heat shrink (3 layers) instead of the top grommet as the aerial wouldn't go through that grommet or any others I had that would fit in the hole where the grommet goes and I didn't want to drill the chassis or front panel holes in an effort to make them larger.

Grateful thanks to Alistair D for sending the Harwin stepped pins that turned out to be ideal for making PCB connections to drilled 1/16in holes. They fit perfectly and could almost have been made for the job.

This forum restores one's faith in human nature :)

Thanks to 'philips210' for sending me a few grip rings. One of them was a perfect replacement for the one that broke in my Philips N4450 tape recorder and this will make my repairs a bit easier.

:)A "BIG" thanks to Jeremy G0HZU for his help and guidance with my latest project which contains various filters, of which I have no knowledge of calculating myself. There are a number of members that are worthy of note also, but to name them would be embarrassing to myself if I missed one out..... so THANK YOU ALL. :D :D :D

Many thanks to Howard, 'omegaman', for kindly sending me quite a stock of Seno 'rub-down' PCB transfers, which are no longer obtainable.

Carefully packed too, in a 'Do Not Bend' envelope. How thoughtful.

Quite the most exciting thing that's happened to me this week so far!
