I also would like to thank Paul, idlerbiker, for the ITT CVC5. My father just informed me he collected it last night.

It will be a valued addition to my collection.

All the best,
John Joe.

A big thank you to 'Astral Highway' for the beautiful Unicorder 61 and the very interesting chat over a cup of coffee today.

I've already had the casing off the machine (it's back together now) and it looks to be an interestring project to restore it.

Hi Tony,

Thank you! Likewise, it was great to meet you, very impressed that you came all that way down specially. I found our chat very interesting and was at times stunned by your encyclopaedic knowledge of specific circuits, components within circuits and histories of technology.

I'm sure the Unicorder is in the very best possible hands for a sympathetic and full restoration inside and I'm intrigued to hear what, if anything, is on that spool of tape!

Many thanks to my good friend Jim Medley for the luncheon voucher, which is apparently valid forever and at any establishment! The Ritz looks nice Jim, see you there? Or maybe just fish & chips at the Black Country Museum and good luck with the Ultra Twin

Many thanks to Eddie - (eddie_ce) in Hamburg for kindly sourcing Philips 'PHILETTA' plastic logos for me for a Philetta BD254U radio that I'm restoring. Eddie kindly tracked down the German supplier, bought the logos out of his own pocket on my behalf till I could recompense Eddie for them via paypal, and sent them priority Air Mail to me. It seems that these logos are prone to falling off and getting lost and it does detract from the radio's appearance without the logo, so it's been really helpful of Eddie to come to my rescue.

Thanks Eddie - you're a great ambassador for the forum!

We curse them when they do things that don't make sense, but when problems happen, they are there to help us. WHO- well the mods/admin staff ,of course. Recently I had a PC time of horrors. I switched on to get the usual bios message about set up or boot. And then - a flashing cursor. Something on my MB had died- most possibly a regulator as I found a hard drive power connector making bad connections. New MB sorted out that, and the long slog of a three system install ( XP/W7/W10) ,and although I'd taken steps to get most of my e mail addresses into a form where I could reset passwords, I'd forgotten about the one associated with VR. Long story short, eventually I managed to get access to my backup e mail site and mods sorted out my access. Many thanks guys- so they're not ogres after all . Take a bow, Station x.

Thank you Ken (Ambientnoise) for the Beogram 1500 deck- and the mince pie and cup of tea and a natter (hope I didn't go on for too long about MRI magnets.....).

Thank you very much, Jim G4XWD, not only for the gramophone cabinet hinges but also for giving me a spare movement for a Taylor 40kOPV multimeter. Not to mention the cup of tea, delicious mince pie and chat with your soon-to-be XYL. Thank you!

A massive thank-you to Jim Medley for generously sending me a bluetooth receiver and other goodies, completely FOC. A true gentleman and a vastly experienced engineer too
