Many thanks to Nick (Nickthedentist) for sending me a TP-Link Load Balancing Router. This is scheduled for experimentation in combining 4G with cable services (Three/VirginMedia respectively). I've been impressed by 4G performance, especially the upload speeds ... these are incredibly quick (typically 18-28Mbps) ... however if one goes over the data limit (PAYG) the costs are eye-watering. Lots to investigate! Cheers Nick

Just a quick note of thanks to Timtape for his great work to keep my Revox PR99 and B77's in tip top shape. He's saved me from tearing my hair out and filling my swear jar up! Thanks Tim

Thanks to Rob (Whiskas) for the nice boxed set of Dremel type tools.

His packaging was a work of art in itself!

A MASSIVE thank you to Jim,G4XWDjim for so very kindly organising the "Grand Garage Giveaway" today at his home prior to his forthcoming move.
To say that I now have many of the parts needed to complete my H.F Linear amp and sundry Antenna matchers would only be a start,also parts missing from WW2 eqpt. in abundance.
Thanks due also for the "Half time cup of Tea"-Lovely.

Very best wishes in your new home and best wishes for both of you in the future.

Many thanks to Rob 672 for donating a very good condition Avo CT38, it is now "paired " with my unit awaiting meter etc transplants.
Nice to meet you and your wife on Friday evening, I trust the rest of the journey was not too horrendous.

Many thanks to crackle who replied to my Dulwich museum thread supplying additional contact details and thus enabling me to visit the museum last Saturday. Well worth the visit.

Many thanks to Paulsherwin for guiding me through the maze of Humax dongles. I know I thanked Paul for "recommending" a dongle. Paul was upset at the wording, but I only took his "recommendations" as help and advice after he'd given me the technical aspects .Many thanks, Paul- all I have to do now is work out how to stream.

Thanks Peter.

Many thanks to Chris55000 for the delivery of a non-working Heathkit VTVM. Although current assessment of mine indicates that it is only the mains transformer that I require, other bits may well be needed from the donor item as and when I restore my unit.
