Many thanks to Radio Wrangler for his kindness in donating a Tektronix 465 'scope (and also for his 'excellent comms' - as they say on eBay). I'm now well-set for resolving the damp-related problems on t'other one

Thanks to Nickthedentist for the tape splicer - ideal to replace my almost identical (and very heavily scored) one!

Many thanks to Alistair D for offering me some air filter material for my Tek 475 'scope, purely for the cost of postage. It is ideal and saved trying to get hold of a large sheet of air conditioner filter that might not have been the right thickness.

Cheers.

Mike

Many thanks to Sean Williams for the free valves. There's some real gems in there.

My sincere thanks to colourstar and audiomagpie who helped in getting a big heavy box from Muphy Maniac at the Golbourne meet to within a few miles of me. Great stuff.

A big thank you to Mike Barker who has done a terrific job rewinding the line output transformer from my Philips 17TG100U. The results are excellent. I now have a feeling of security whenever I run this set - I expect Mike's quality is better than the original!

Thank you to Mike and the Harpenden team this weekend. I arrived very late and the numbers seemed to be down. Even so, there were some bargains had during the auction despite Mike’s best efforts to get us to dig deeper. I was under strict orders but still came away with a nice little (easily hidden!) RGD set.

Just another round of Thanks to Mikey 405 for the usual memorable day in Solihull.

Also more Thanks to Keith (Keithstv) for diverting from his family business to drop off some "goodies" - eg the CRT based signal analyser that I "bagged".

Thanks to you both...

A big thanks to David Phillips (cre8anet) who donated a large amount of Ekco television service data to me, it really made my year.

Thanks to Ian Kirkpatrick (IJK2008) for going the extra mile and sending me not only hi-res photos of an AD75 back, as I requested, but also scans of the label and a paper template for the back itself.

Service above and beyond the call of duty! Thank you again Ian,

Phil
