Nick- thanks for the T12 tubes.
Lloyd- thanks for the VCR's, my other half's VCR refused to accept a tape yesterday so this is very timely.

A big thanks to Studio263 (Tim) for the huge box of remote controls.
The women who delivered the parcel nearly had a hernia!

A huge thank-you to Martin M for the 3 1/4” reel of tape, completely FOC and even posted at his own expense. Your generosity is greatly appreciated! Thanks again,

Phil

May I be the first of many, I’m sure to thank Chris (Herald1360) for the packet of FETs that arrived this morning.
Going to be great help to the “learning” members of Mexborough Radio Club.
Cheers mate!

Thank you to Chris (Herald1360) for the delivery of 2N3819 JFETS in the post.
Most generous of Chris to distribute these,especially as the eBay sourced FETS are increasingly turning out to be fakes.
Great gesture-much appreciated

Many thanks to Graham, Station X for sending me some 4-247 transistors for a club project that is forming up.
A suitable charity donation is going to RAF Benevolent fund.

A huge thank you to the forums transformer guru Ed Dinning. Without his experience & insight I would not have been in a position to repair the one in my Defiant MSH902.
As can be seen in the photo (black arrow) it seems as if the winding was not quite long enough so they added about a half inch!?!
Anyway, its now as it should be once again, many many thanks Ed.

A very big thank you to G3VKM Roger for so very patiently researching and sending a great deal of info on the ww2 Wireless Set No.21 that I have parts for and for which I am gathering items in order to attempt to embark on a reconstruction/rebuild project. Again,a great example of a forum member going beyond the call of duty.
