Thanks to fizzingtelevision both for the lovely radio I bought from him and his patience and not pursuit of the courier company when it entered 'the void'.

That's one radio ticked off the 'must have' list.

Thanks also to the numerous people who have sent me stuff recently. I've thanked everyone personally, but I'd like to put on record my gratitude to all on here for being a set of super people.

Another nod of thanks to unrealdave for taking the time to sort out all these surprisingly nice HP Compaq PCs and sending them off by courier.

Thanks to Malc (MALC SCOTT) for the pair of Panasonic speakers, and to Andy (bikerhifinut) for going out of his way to bring them to me. They are now installed in the bedroom and are a big improvement on the awful micro system speakers that were there before.

Thanks a lot AndiiT and daughter for organising my receipt of the Mission speakers which although in need of much TLC will eventually be reborn.

Thanks to Johnlees for a nice Pilot T405 and the bonus of an Ultra Coronation Twin in excellent cosmetic condition, including original box! - very generous.

Thank You Keith.

For taking the time to go over to Birmingham south, pick the radio up and drop it off in Sheffield.
Kind Regards
Kev.

Thanks to Studio263 for the Sony Watchman portable TV - plus a purpose-built 9v mains adaptor (very handy as 6 x 'C' cells probably won't last very long!). As hoped, it works beautifully with the Sony video camera + modulator.
Cheers, Tim
Best wishes
Guy

A massive thank you to Pellseinydd for his tireless help to a vintage phone newly and for his amazing generosity - he'll know what I mean. Fantastic, yes it does make the world go round. Best wishes, Paperboy.

Thanks to Chris (reddish75) for the BBC EP14/1P audio test set; I'm really looking forward to getting this old beauty back into full working order.
It's built like the proverbial outbuilding ... I've already got my local shotblasting/powdercoat specialists on the case (literally!)
Cheers, Chris
Best wishes
