Default Early products from the Spencer-West company.

Advert in the October 1952 Practical Television magazine.
One is a converter to enable Sutton Coldfield TV sets to receive the transmissions from the newly opened Wenvoe transmitter. The AC14 unit has five valves so it is not a simple device.
The other item is the AC13 pre-amplifier.
The company also made other items to improve TV reception.
Spencer-West were very competent on coil design. Also did some pioneering on printed circuit design, it was said they worked with Pye to develop their PCBs.

I have a Spencer-West band III converter somewhere.
Must dig it out. I'll be free to a good home.
