Default Re: Peto Scott Transistor Portable Radio

I do remember the Ediswan 'top hat' transistors. I think I got them in a Radio Exchange kit, which only just worked.
Later, I tried one instead of an OC45 in a standard superhet of the time (mid 60s), and thought the top hat had more ooomph. This is a technical term for how a young teenager would measure performance with his ears!!
Still have some in my junk box, if only I could find my vintage junk box.

On a sadder, but practical note, I will have to instruct my executors to give vintage stuff like that a good home - probably the Dulwich museum. Don't worry, I'm not planning on going yet!
If you can have 4.7 MHz, why can't you have 4.7 MOm!
