In addition to my recent Posts in my Turntable Stroboscope Thread I'd just like to extend a huge vote of thanks to David G4EBT, Radio Wrangler and Tony Duell for their advice, guidance and patience during this lengthy project.

It's been an educational journey for me as I've added to my knowledge in certain areas but I'm still humbled by how little I do know compared with the contributions from the Forum members mentioned above.

I would like to say a big thanks you to Graham (llama) For the Decca Gypsy portable TV he has given me to assist with the restoration / reconstruction of my Keracolor (actually a Keramono!) Tv set . Not only did he kindly give me the set but he brought it with him on a trip to Peterborough!
Many thanks Graham I will post a thread on the forum once I get the set on the bench.

Rich.

Many thanks to my beautiful partner Emma who not only tolerates my incessant messing around with, and impulse purchasing of, old radios/music centres/electronics in general. She has also presented me with a radio for my birthday which I have never seen before & even has my name on it!

It's certainly Chinese in manufacture, and suitably cheesy inside with lifted/bridged and cut traces with extra added resistors from the factory & only covers MW/LW bands but this just makes it even further up "my street", it's so different to the norm & I can't put a date on it either, I'd imagine from the styling it's late 70's early 80's. not much to go wrong either as it's so cheaply made, total of 3 electrolytics which I replaced as it was humming loudly but the rest are all disc. Sorry for the long gushy post about what most would see as a throwaway piece of plastic, but it's one of the coolest birthday presents I've ever had & probably unique in it's survival unless anyone has info to the contrary?

Anyway better sign off before I get in trouble for OT, although the gist of this post is actually to say a massive Thank You to Emma (if she happens to look through the forum).

Very special thanks to Alistair (DonaldStott) for sending me the QL and at his own expense along with the vital accessories. Not only that but including some of the elusive (for me anyway!) of the Lidl croc clips.

Thank you Sir, you are a true Gentleman!

I sincerely hope that the other forum members that showed an interest in the QL will soon find one of their own.

Many thanks once again. Very grateful.

Peter
