Thanks to Peter [Reelguy] for dashing round to shower me with DVD recorders and a E55 remote for my existing emergency back up machine. At that point we discovered it was the same as not one but two remotes that I had already:-] [There is an explanation but I can't remember it]. Non-the-less his archive is keeping me going for the time being. I went back to full time reliance on VCR's for a week but it was hard work by comparison:wall:
Thanks again Peter-Bexhill's R to Reel Guru!

Thank you to Bill (a.k.a. Batterymaker 1) who kindly produced a bespoke version of the Drydex H1044 HT battery cover and e-mailed it to me. I have just finished constructing the battery and I'm delighted with the result. This will be on display to the public in a museum.

Thanks again Bill :thumbsup:

Grateful thanks to electroanorak (Daniel) who sent me some MC1377P ICs despite Royal Mail's determination to misdirect them, which meant that he had to send them twice.

Daniel also included some spares, and refused to take anything for any of them - A real gent.

Thanks very much to Jim G4XWD for the advice yesterday, and for the solder and capacitors, all of which helped me to complete the repair on my Trio communications receiver :wave:

Hi folks

I would like to say thank you to Steve (fettler) for supplying me with a frequency counter that initially would not count and needed the fault put right. And thanks to everyone who has given a little help with suggestions on the fault, I have now successfully repaired the counter by replacing one of the IC's namely a MC10116P which is better known as a Triple Line Receiver I obtained a couple of these from Little Diode who specialise in obsolete types of components such as these.

Best wishes

Ken:thumbsup:

Many thanks to "Oldtestgear" (Phil) for two great Tektronix 'scopes and a Racal-Dana 1998 counter. Really good prices for some great test-gear :thumbsup:.

Big thanks to Tim (tim.norris) for packing the AVO 8 mK 5 very well and getting it to me - It is indeed in lovely condition and arrived this morning. Very much appreciated.

Re: The Thanks Thread
 
My grateful thanks to the following:-

1) Member Gommster (Dave) for the Books, Farnell PSU and Heathkit Distortion Meter I selected from his Charity Clear-out;

2) JohnBHanson for the BT301 Cable Tester - I really enjoyed my trip to Worthing for it!

3) Bryan M for offering me the Learnakit Scope - I propose to fully document this on here, the idea being anyone who has one of the earlier valve models can make a comparison and try reconstructing a transistor model of their own - I believe the same cabinet/chassis was used in both the valved and transistor models!

4) Member Omegaman for the G4PMK Spectrum Analyser Information!

Thank you all very much Gentlemen!

Many thanks to "Oldtestgear" (Phil) for providing a foot for the Racal-Dana 1998 that he had sold me earlier and especially for not accepting any re-imbursement for either the foot or the postage.

Thanks to Ti Pwun ( Jon ) for the superb work he did repairing my Hacker Super Sovereign, he did an amazing job and I have no hesitation in recommending his work as he's a first rate guy.

Superb in every single way and honestly went far deeper into it then I thought he would , truly amazing.

Many thanks to the moderation team for letting certain threads go on for as long as they have. No real harm was done, even after the topic had fallen below the horizon; the posts still bore some relationship to one another, even if not the very first post; the tone was still civil; and ..... well, sometimes it's just nice to enjoy the walk and the talk, even if you've already seen what you originally set out to see.

Many thanks to Jonster for supplying me with a replacement pair of bass/treble knobs and AFC-button for my Roberts R606, along with a couple of the little red frequency-marker slider tabs: my 606 now looks respectable rather than tatty.

Photos will follow!

Hi,

I just wanted to thank Steve (Colourstar) for the radios he sold me in this thread:

https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...d.php?t=115091

The Bush is working beautifully with my new modulator. So I now have Serenade on tap ;D

I have only one concern: it is on a shelf on the party wall. I might put a piece of carpet under it, just in case Paul Robeson's lower registers find their way into my neighbour's front room :o

Leon Crampin 2nd May 2015 8:44 pm

Many thanks to Martin Bush for a most generous postage allowance for a DAC90A grille which I sent to him. Much appreciated.

Leon.

Martin Bush 3rd May 2015 7:27 pm

Re: The Thanks Thread
 
You are welcome. I find help every way I turn on here so only too glad to try to repay people's kindness... and seeing as I can't offer much in the way of technical expertise I must try to pay what I owe :)

Thanks to Leon and everyone who has helped me so far with kit and advice.
