Thanks to Malcolm for three 90's laptops, keep my DOS PCB layout program (Ranger) running for a little longer.

Very many thanks to VT.Fuse for the 4P1L he so generously sent me for the Volksempfanger project. He even included a valve base to go with it!
Very quickly sent and expertly packaged.
Once again showing the Forum at it's very best!

All the best

Hi!

My thanks to Jeremy for the Armstrong 500 Component Information which myself and those Members with Armstrong 400/500 series equipment will find helpful, and for offering me Scope Calibration Tackle at an excellent price I was happy to pay!

Also to Martin with his prompt offer of Sussex PCBs which I've now purchased, and all the other Members who've given me encouragement with a Valve Tester Project, and those who expressed their appreciation for my Circuit Symbols!

Many thanks to Davidh1041 for bring me the Murphy V410 TV and for keeping it for me for so long: cheers David!!
Good to see the Maestro out and about: I was going to come in an 1100, but the heavy rain made me change my mind:- not great on the M25!

All the best
Nick

Many thanks to 'Top Cap' for the telephone fuses and tester. The fuses are the right ones that I was looking for and the tester looks interesting.

Some long overdue thanks from me to: Graham (llama) for patiently hanging on to some cassette decks for such a while, and taking the trouble to pack and send them to me ; also hearty thanks to Andy (Diabolical artificer) for the tape heads he sent me.

All these items are being put to good use - or soon will be!

And belated thanks to Colin (UKCol) who presented me with two complete Pam TB60 transistor radios at the Harpenden table-sale 10 days ago. This followed my usual regular plea for absolutely anything Pam/Pamphonic-related.
This kindly donation enabled me to replace a damaged knob on my show model and have a good chance of making up another worker in due course.
Thanks Colin!
