Default Re: PYE TT1 - First Transistor Portable UK TV

A quick update on my post dated 16 July. I duly replaced the rectifier diodes with modern equivalents (courtesy of Maplins) and the smoothing caps (by using two 4.7k uf 'strapped' together in each case). The result has been a good improvement but its a far from perfect picture which I will put down to Fernseh's observations about the lack of a 10v battery and its inherent stabilising attributes. Essentially, I am quite pleased. It is watchable. Thanks everyone. I'd like to post a couple of snaps of it but haven't established how to do this yet.
