A big thank you to Peter, PJFradios for the Romac portable radio just received. Been after one of these for years, interested on how the aerial in the carry strap stands up to use. Especially pleased it is the 2 band version, the earlier MW only set was the first UK one to use the “new” B7G battery valves.

Thank you very much to Noel "greenkit" for these original Tektronix manuals! After a looong journey to the continent I held them in my hands yesterday and I must say, a great read! So now there isn't any more a chance of an excuse to not restoring my 7603 scope.

Thanks Noel, that was very generous!

Many thanks to Aaron_555 for passing me his RA17L receiver. It appears to be in excellent condition and I look forward to restoring it to full glory.

Thanks to Rob (Robinshack) for the solder tags which have just arrived. Just what I'd been looking for, as the last batch I bought (from Rapid Electronics, while I was still at school!) is running low.

Many thanks to Steve (stevehertz) for the Tandberg 2060L Hi-Fi receiver that safetly arrived today.

I remember in the late 1970s a friend had one of these but with Rosewood case and I was very envious of it.

Looking forward to checking it out.

A big thank you to Richard, trh01uk for the acorn valve bases and to Mark James for generously donating one of his. I never thought that I would find more than one of these!

Thank you!

I would like to thank Adrian (agardiner) for the Avo Minor and the Habotest Pen Meter.

Both arrived extremely well packed and in fantastic condition.

That little Habotest has already been put to great use sorting out family appliances so much easier than trying to balance my fluke on my knee whilst using the probes :thumbsup:

I lost a similar device 2 decades or so ago in Nanjing.

Cheers

Thanks to Nick the 1100 man for the fluorescent tubes. I'm going to try and shift what I can't (or won't ever) use. (there's probably more mercury in my fillings than in one of those!)

Many many thanks to Mike (Murphy Mad) for today's gargantuan effort.

A bunch of crap Ferranti parts were transformed into a running (at times limping) receiver thanks to the tolerance and perseverance of a truly dedicated human being.

He managed to suffer me, bad repairs, lost parts, my bad memory, broken transformer windings and a ton of rust to resurrect a piece of 1930's history.

It will not be sold - it is coming with me to France. I'll need a huge lorry when I go, but it will be in it!

Cheers to a true stalwart of the radio community plus the supporting crew who kept us entertained with drinks and classic car repairs!

SEAN - owner of a Ferranti that is 90 odd years old!
