Default Greetings from Harwich, Essex

Greetings from the North East corner of Essex
Semi retired former radio engineer with Marconi Marine
Thought I'd turn my former skills in fixing some old valve broadcast receivers with my 13 year old grandson
So last weekend we collected 3 which were being sold as 'spears or repairs'
We got a very nice old Murphy A484 working the same afternoon
Looks like you'll be seeing more of my postings about old stuff.....

Hi Dave and welcome.
Looks like we have a thriving little community here in North-East Essex: Colchester, Wix, St Osyth, Harwich... Several of us in some of these places.
BTW I've got several spare valve radios you're welcome to.
Half my stuff is junk - trouble is, I don't know which half!

Not to mention Brightlingsea!

I feel a shedding of more old bits and pieces coming on.
