I would like to thank 60 oldjohn for the Philips L2G77B Musette shoulder strap these are so often missing.

There must be very many members here who have benefited from John's generosity with hard to get parts.

Thanks John

A huge thank you to Chris or known as unitelex. He organised, repaired and posted a speaker to me in 24 hours which will now complete the repairs to the Bush VHF61 I'm restoring. All Just for the cost of postage. Very generous. Without people like Chris and this great forum I'm sure lots of these projects and repairs would be a struggle to complete or find parts. This forum is such a great place for like minded people to repair vintage radio in a non profiteering way. Great thanks, Chris, for all your help and sending the speaker.

Huge thanks are due to several forum members, and especially G0HZU_JMR Jeremy, for patiently guiding me through the process of designing a pi filter for converting a TTL 1MHz square wave into a clean sine wave with enough power to drive a 50Ω co-ax test lead.

Just to say Many Thanks to Bill, AC/HL, for going out of his way to sort me out with a sprung terminal like this https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...d.php?t=180988 to replace the broken one on my Kingshill supply. I can now use the supply as it should be used !

Ive decided not to do any restoration on the cabinet as it looks wonderful as it is and the innards have already been done.

Glad you like Richard,

If space was not an issue I would have kept it, electrically it's had a new smoothing cap and all the critical wax capacitors replaced so should be fine.
It was in a very sorry state when I received it so good that it's been rescued and gone to a good home.
Regards,
Steve.
