Hi Norman. ive just looked at the AA website and its telling me that you are about 425 miles away from where i am. so there and back would be around 850 miles give or take a few detours down the wrong road as usually happens when im day dreaming/driving. cheers neil.

Hi All,
I will be going but sadly not bringing one of my famous Chocolate cakes
But will have lots of cheap pre war sets in the car + some mystery stuff if i can dig my way to it through this pile of old Green round Ekco's going to the tip
Looking forward to meeting as many fellow enthusiasts as possible. Can I ask what time is "kick off" please?
Thanks,
Paul.

Great Paul,
pity about the Chocolate cake, you may fade away completely, then we would never find you

Be warned! I shall be bringing several boxes old "Practical" (and similar) magazines that I shall try to sneak into other people's cars. I shall also have a few other leftovers from the B&B at Golborne of which I would like to dispose.

I need to dispose of most of the above, so that I have room for the items I've arranged to collect for others as well as for myself.

Hello Norman,
Are you wanting folk to fetch down their own trestle/folding tables to display their wares ?
I've heaps of Test Eq. to part with. Mainly 20MHz D/B scopes, 30V DC PSU's, Tran./Valve Voltmeters, AVO's, and a lovely old Marconi CT394B(TF801B) VHF/UHF Sig.Gen.

Regards, David

hi David, You can if you want bring down a table etc. I will try to organize things at this end with wooden battens with boards on them as that is what is lying around. I can get some stuff inside the workshop if the weather is against us. I look forward to seeing you on the day, regards. Norman

I seem to recall boxes (and loose piles) of stuff covering Trevor's back garden last year - with the more important items being rushed under cover when the rains (inevitably) fell.

Plastic sheeting might also be useful to bring for any items that might struggle to cope with a wetting.

I look forward to an enjoyable day.

Hi Trevor,
You mean the little CR66? It is the kit version, but has been built by someone who knew how to solder and wire up neatly! I got it from a silent key sale. I will keep it in the car boot until you arrive and have a look Cannot say fairer than that

Hi on Sunday I will be bringing a box of mixed 78s with me if anyone is interested. I have a post-war Cossor Console radio which will be free of charge as its quite scratched and has woodworm damage. Chassis is good. Its bulky so i will only bring it if someone expresses an interest even if its just for spares. have a garrard 78 only turn table which is FOC which i can bring. Also a tatty GEC superhet 8 which is fit for spares. If anyone is looking for anything in particular drop me a PM as like everyone else I have had a bit of a clear out I have found some turntables and 40s/50s radios in various states which may be useful to someone. Not much in the TV line I am afraid . A Couple of battery portable radios as well which will be FOC

Alex

Hi.
The car is loaded up ready to go, there is a JVC sphere for 60oldjohn, two T-vettes for Steve-p, some turntables, radios, and odd and ends. All free, I will be bringing other stuff back so this must all be taken, if not poor old Norman is going to get some more projects!
See you all tomorrow.
