My first tv dismantled at the age of about 3.5 years old
it was A murphy from what i recal A V280.
But nothing was safe including my sisters walky talky dolls.
I did progress to mending things though and by the age
of about 12 I could use A multimeter and used to fix radios for my teachers.
I started to collect tvs when i was 15 and by the age of
27 had quite A few interesting sets including A 905
found in A skip in north walsham norfolk.
A long way from london?.
but got involved with A girl hew talked me into getting shot of my tvs.( bad move as we split up 2 months after).
I left school and worked for A local electronics firm.
And whas with them for about 3 years but left when
thay got into trouble.
I then went self employed mending tvs ect.
Have had tempary jobs with other firms but have remained self employed .
I have done the equivelent to an hnc course in electronics and passed whith distinctions and merits
through the years .
Bu t sadly my main job at the moment is lorry driving.
Got to keep the wolves from the door!.
I am still active with modern repairs though.
Oh and the last four years I have gained A few more tellys ( dont ask me to count them but must be triple numbers by now ) .
I have built A twenty by twenty shed to house them in
and am going to build one thirty foot long this year.
I havent got A prewar set yet to replace the 905 but
will live in hope. (santa please I have been A good Boy)
So thats me A trucking tv nut .
