Thanks to RojDW48 for the Hacker booklets. They all have been scanned and uploaded to HiFi engine. The Hacker User Group also has a copy.

I have forwarded the MC600 stuff to Liamo81.

Many thanks to 'alfatangowhisky' for the Osborne 1A computer. It's absolutely beautful inside, I've never seen such shiny PCBs! Restoring it will be an interestng project that I'll probably start a thread on in the appropriate section.

Thanks very much to Glyn (Welsh Anorak) who kindly sent me the subcarrier reference coil for the PAL encoder circuit I am building. It's not something that can be readily purchased so really appreciate receiving it.

Regards,
Symon

Like to thank RichardGM for the VFD which arrived safe and well.

A nice thing to play with once the bad weather inevitably returns

Cheers

I would like to offer my appreciation to all of the people who have commented on my recent post for a Marconi TF-2701 bridge.
Especially GMB for his very kind help and Tim for his offer.
This forum is my go to source of delight. Mostly just to read and enjoy but sometimes to look for guidance.
I could rave on but I shan't.
You get my thoughts.
Thank you!
Robert. VK2 Broke No Money.
