Hi folks

I would like to say thank you to Steve (fettler) for supplying me with a frequency counter that initially would not count and needed the fault put right. And thanks to everyone who has given a little help with suggestions on the fault, I have now successfully repaired the counter by replacing one of the IC's namely a MC10116P which is better known as a Triple Line Receiver I obtained a couple of these from Little Diode who specialise in obsolete types of components such as these.

Best wishes

Ken

Many thanks to "Oldtestgear" (Phil) for two great Tektronix 'scopes and a Racal-Dana 1998 counter. Really good prices for some great test-gear .
Colin.

My grateful thanks to the following:-

1) Member Gommster (Dave) for the Books, Farnell PSU and Heathkit Distortion Meter I selected from his Charity Clear-out;

2) JohnBHanson for the BT301 Cable Tester - I really enjoyed my trip to Worthing for it!

3) Bryan M for offering me the Learnakit Scope - I propose to fully document this on here, the idea being anyone who has one of the earlier valve models can make a comparison and try reconstructing a transistor model of their own - I believe the same cabinet/chassis was used in both the valved and transistor models!

4) Member Omegaman for the G4PMK Spectrum Analyser Information!

Thank you all very much Gentlemen!

Many thanks to "Oldtestgear" (Phil) for providing a foot for the Racal-Dana 1998 that he had sold me earlier and especially for not accepting any re-imbursement for either the foot or the postage.

Thanks to Ti Pwun ( Jon ) for the superb work he did repairing my Hacker Super Sovereign, he did an amazing job and I have no hesitation in recommending his work as he's a first rate guy.

Superb in every single way and honestly went far deeper into it then I thought he would , truly amazing.

Many thanks to the moderation team for letting certain threads go on for as long as they have. No real harm was done, even after the topic had fallen below the horizon; the posts still bore some relationship to one another, even if not the very first post; the tone was still civil; and ..... well, sometimes it's just nice to enjoy the walk and the talk, even if you've already seen what you originally set out to see.

Many thanks to Jonster for supplying me with a replacement pair of bass/treble knobs and AFC-button for my Roberts R606, along with a couple of the little red frequency-marker slider tabs: my 606 now looks respectable rather than tatty.

Photos will follow!
