Thanks to Station X for allowing me to be the next custodian of his very carefully packed ADI-AT600 amateur radio handheld.

I'll hopefully be taking it with me into some high-up locations shortly, weather allowing.

A big thank you to Rich (slidertogrid) for the push button for my Ekco A410 radio. Thanks to him the Ekco is now a viable restore prospect.

I had thought the chances of obtaining this button was about zero, but no.

I just off now to the garden centre for some rocking horse manure.

Thanks to David, Captainpugwash, for supplying me completely free of charge, an 8 track player and tapes. He generously took pity on me as I just missed out on another one on the forum.
Thanks again Sir!
Peter.

Sincere thanks to the following forum members who generously donated Seno and Alfac rub-down PCB transfers to me, which are no longer produced:

Neil - 'Newlite'
Bryan - 'Bryan M'
Howard - 'Omegaman'

I've made an appropriate donation to the local Hospice charity.

Many thanks to Mike (Cobaltblue) for the generous gift of a two pin plug I was looking for, it's just the job. Once again this marvellous forum has come up trumps.

Thanks to AC/HL for sending me the 2-part Philips N4450 service manual. It will be very useful in repairing that wonderful tape recorder.

Default Re: The Thanks Thread

I just found this thread, I don't know how I missed it. I have quite a few thank yous built up! I want to thank Mike(cobalt blue) for the McMichael knobs, a perfect match and looking great. Mick(vinrads) very kindly sent me a variable capacitor for my radio build, thank you. Thanks to Richard(electronicskip) for the centrecom, it may be handy one day but for now at least it's safe from the bin! I also want to thank Trevor (trifocaltrev) for sending me a lot of documentation and circuit diagrams for my Loewe radio, very useful. A final thanks goes to everyone who has helped me out with my radio build so far and with my restoration projects, without this forum I wouldn't have known where to start. Also a thanks to Paul Stenning for creating this great forum in the first place! Thanks once again all.

Cameron

Many thanks to Peter (Kalee 20) for the excellent design work he did on the DAC90a. This transforms a good set into an excellent one with a few simple to do mods.

Nice one Peter!

Hopefully it'll be working again soon
