I would like to thank all those involved in organising this for a most enjoyable day.

It was interesting to see a working Televisor, I'd only read about them before. And the talk on spark/coherer telegraphy was excellent.

Yes a very good day. The TV receivers performed quite well. Many had never see a projection tv work before. The Decca 131 made an impact! Thanks to everyone that made it fun. John.

A most enjoyable day, the working spark transmitter being most impressive. Although the wind brought a chill to the proceedings a short visit to the working tv display soon warmed me up! Good to meet up with so many like-minded idiots - sorry, enthusiasts again.
