Default UK Radio Technicians web site.

In the interest of passing on technical knowledge to the next generation, may I ask the Moderator if information about a UK Radio Technicians web site, with many very informative videos on theory and practical servicing may be disclosed on this site.
Thanks
John

Hi
It is Ray at:-

Ray does a weekly 1/2 hr video from his workshop which I enjoy, you have to pay a small fee to join, 25 if I remember correctly.
Cheers
John

Yes, agreed. I'm a fan of Ray's output although I have only seen his free videos on Youtube.

Well worth promoting to newcomers to the hobby I would have thought.

There are many videos on his site, some considerable effort and time has been put into it, well worth visiting. His weekly video also shows his sense of humour.
Cheers

I can vouch for this website and Ray also. He restored my first radio - best thing I ever did as far as vintage radios go.

I'm also a member of his site and when I get time I enjoy watching the videos.

Personally I'd like to see some of the members on this site making similar videos as I'm sure they would turn out well. For someone like me a two minute video is far easier to digest than written instructions.

Yes I agree, it is much easier to learn that way.

Radio Workshop Ray has had an interesting life (so far) and tells a good tale.

I would like to join in the future. Is there much about transistor radios?
