The last RS catalogues I received are dated Oct 06/ Sep 07. I still consult them from time to time as they contain a wealth of information. Like a lot of people I tend to hang on to old catalogues although a lot of the information can now be found on the internet. How I wish this facility was available when I started work. Peter.

There used to be sets of RS catalogues all over the office so many sets some were never opened.
Most of us still miss them since the search engine RS use is terrible.

I have a lot of Radiospares parts still on their cards or in boxes.

The Radiospares parts "replacement for" seemed to usually good quality and a drop in replacement.

It's a wonder they still survive our company discourages even the development teams ordering RS parts these days.

Cheers

They're on our (university) approved supplier list, which suggests they are amongst the most expensive and the institution is determined to spend as much as possible - somehow it always seems to work out that way!

I remember line cord, we had several drums of it mostly for imported from the USA small radios. Wouldn't have thought there was any call for it now, I believe it contained asbestos in the olden days.

When we first had it radio spares were all it contained, then they started doing TV spares, very useful firm.

The rep used to call once a month for many years, then once in three months then once a year I seem to remember, then as previously mentioned - closed my account!

RS did venture briefly into the hobby market with a selected range of RS components,
around the mid 70's known as Doram electronics.
