A big thank you to crudmeister for the Belling-Lee connector for my Advance DVM5 voltmeter.

And especially, a massive thank you to gingpeakin for the Advance DVM5 bits; yielding a plethora of switches, buttons, lamps and useful spares.

Despite my repeated attempts, gingpeakin refused to accept any payment, and even dropped them round!
Great to meet you, Ging, and thank you, you're a rock-star! :thumbsup:

Thanks to Dickie for the Radio Designers Handbook. My previous copy was falling to pieces and moth eaten. This is much better. I don't have to guess at the missing bits.

I'd like to extend a very warm thank you to Phil G4SPZ for his kindness in sending me 2 X good ECC85 valves, enabling me to complete the repairs to my Ferguson 383A radio.
Phil donated these valves to me and also footed the bill for the postage from UK to Australia. Phil's generosity and helpfulness is an example to us all.

Thanks to G8KBG Tony for picking up a request on old Jackson cooker temperature settings, after the post "disappeared". Thanks to Tony I now have another decent selection of recipes for SWMBO to try out, and better still, a SWMBO that realises that us old folks, with our ancient bits of kit, have a place in the world.

Many thanks to Studio263 (Tim) for the Tektronix 7613 mainframe storage 'scope c/w 2 x 7A18 and 1 x 7B53 modules.

All found to be in full working order; the CRT image is clear, bright and unburnt; all pots and switches seem in good shape - and overall, this superb example of 'Tek-manship' is in remarkably good physical condition, as evidenced by the 'calibration void' stickers having remained undisturbed since their application at MSL Hitchin in 1993.

More icing on the cake .... in the form of pristine copies of the '7613 Operator's Manual' and all relevant Service manuals.

Tim, your kindness is greatly appreciated! :)

Best wishes

Thanks to Alan and Susanne, for the time that we spent together in Havana yesterday, and the nice conversation that we had. We spent two hours talking about a lot of subjects and the time flew. I feel that I left a lot to talk about, but then my wife and I had to leave as transportation takes us about two and a half hours to return home.

Alan and Susanne gave me a wonderful Selena radio. It looks "brand new, althought in this case I should say it is "new old stock". The radio sounds very well and it is the new jewel in my little collection of Soviet radios.

Bless you both Alan and Susanne

Many, many thanks to Barry (Audio1950) for his very much appreciated kind gift of turntable instruction and very kind words, and who refused point blank to accept payment of any kind, not even for P&P.
One day I hope I may be able to repay the debt of help and kindness I owe to forum members, by freely donating any bits or parts that I have, as others have done before me.
Cheers, Ted.
