My sincere thanks to astro63 for supplying me with a replacement Dansette turntable platter. And free of charge. Very generous.

A very belated thankyou to Peter (Electronpusher0) for the Mk2 Minimod PCB that safely arrived a couple of weeks back.

A big thank you to Anthony for the gift of an engineers vice & kudos for packaging it and shipping it over to me, it's much appreciated. In these hard times it's nice to know that the fire of altruism & camaraderie still burns.

I just want to thank Ed Dinning for the latest DAC90A transformer rewind. He charges a very reasonable rate and without people like Ed providing such a valuable service, many more radios would be consigned to the dustbin!

Thanks to David G4EBT for kindly offering the 49er PCB and then sending it off completely FOC rather than just chucking it away which would have been so much easier for him to do. This is what makes this forum a great place to be and is much appreciated

Thanks to all recent purchasers of my items (too many to name!). All items are now posted and will be with you soon.

These sales collectively directly supported the acquisition of a very rare item, it's much appreciated, many thanks.

. . .My grateful thanks to 'Marconi_MPT4" Richard Woods for his help in scanning a Hatfield HBC1000/1000 Psophometer Manual for me – he has provided me with a beautiful clear scan, altho' it is missing two sets of board drawings, I hope to either be able to obtain another copy with them, or possibly get hold of the boards themselves that the missing diagrams would have covered!

. . .As it is I know now what an "A4/1000" board is and if my unit hasn't got one, there's enough information to design and make one!

A massive thanks to agardiner for the valve tester. It's in perfect condition and I've tested a Nuvistor that I had to hand already with it.
