Another thank-you to Chris55000 for using his skills and battling health issues to design new regulator boards for my BRC 2000 project, i can dust off this beast and push though to a result with renewal enthusiasm now!.

Thankyou to Rob (whiskas) for the Weller soldering iron + station plus spare iron and spare tips, that safely arrived yesterday.

As always was excellently packaged.

A big thankyou to Mike (Cobaltblue) for the Grundig TK 5 fast wind control shaft that arrived today, this will be used to replace my existing partly broken shaft, very generous of Mike to provide this FOC.

Many thanks to Dave (G60NEDave) for the isolation transformer/mains conditioner - especially for his careful and excellent packaging. This sort of generosity and care is what makes this forum so special!

Thank you to Mike (Cobaltblue) for the Grundig TK5 bits, including a serviceable head, and to Peter (dragonser) for the boxed Sony ICF-7600, which will afford hours of amusement!

Cheers, Gentlemen.

A big thankyou again to Mike (Cobaltblue) for the Grundig TK 5 fast wind control knob that arrived today, this will be used to replace my existing partly broken knob on my TK 8, colour is different but that is fine, very generous again of Mike to provide this FOC.

On behalf of the Broadcast Television Technology Trust I would like to thank all those forum members who have helped the MCR21 project. There are too many too name and there is always the possibility that my memory would embarrass me by forgetting someone.

We will have a demo table at Retrotech ( #36) please come by and say hello.

Our BBC OB van is looking splendid on the outside, but much still to do on the inside. One of our regular volunteers has created a number of videos which can be viewed on our YouTube page (search for MCR21)
