Default Edinburgh to Sheffield or Huddersfield.

Hello.

Can some one help me get a Hallicrafter S36A from Edinburgh to Sheffield/Huddersfield or if they can drop it off in South or West Yorkshire.

Thank You.
Kevin.

Possibly.

Dad's 90th birthday party, all being well, is in early September, with the family meeting in Scarborough. The rest of the family are coming from the Huddersfield area. It depends on space in Robert's mini. I'll have a word when we next have a phone call.

What dimensions?

David

Hi David,

It is the full receiver with case and weighs 78 lbs.

See: https://tinyurl.com/y5keojq4

I could possibly bring it to you if that helps.

Kind regards,

Peter

I whizz round the bypass once a week, going to school some horses so going inwards a bit to collect it isn't much out of my way. This week it'll be tomorrow between 17:00 and 18:00, next week it'll be Tuesday or Wednesday. Things keep getting juggled around due to circumstances. Kevin's passed me tha address.

78lb! I never knew Hallicrafters were so heavy. I think Robert and Mandy are just in their car themselves. If things don't fit, I'll just point the Range Rover at Rotherham. I'd better warn Robert that it's almost the size and 3/4 the weight of an AR88.

Hi David,

Many thanks for offering to transport this boat anchor. You are very welcome to call tomorrow or next week which ever suits you best.

Kind regards,

Peter.

OK, I'll try tomorrow. At least I know which day and time that way!

Come to think of it, there's still a boat anchor in the back of the car a 0-70v 10A Farnell PSU. Back when I had a job (!) we used a lot of my tackle developing our products. The Battle of Britiain memorial flight of the RAF have been in the news a bit doing flypasts. They use radios and transponders where I designed the RF bits. It was interesting to use the ADS-B exchange website watch it tracking something I'd designed, heading over for the 'Captain Tom' flypast.

I'll try for 6pm.

David

If you have time for a visit to the "play room" I can show you how tidy and organised I am. (Not)

Nothing to fear, Peter. I'm quite certain mine must be worse, and extends through the whole house. But it's all good stuff and will come in someday, I'm absolutely certain.

I'll make time.

That's what I keep telling people, and it works sometimes!

No problem, and I got to see Peter's mirror-lid pre-war TV in operation showing some beautifully appropriate newsreel footage!

David.

David and I had a very nice natter and despite my protestations he even carried the S36A to his car. Very welcome back any time.

I've seen enough Hallcrafters receivers, but never bothered with them. I always thought they were light weight jobs! Anyway, easy enough compared to my AR88s

At least I keep myself reasonably fit and active. About an hour after seeing Peter, the horse I was on did a panic and flattened me backwards from the saddle. legs stayed in place (my only source of stability) and i had enough muscles to bring myself upright to get some control of the thing. I think someone in the viewing gallery standing up was the trigger. She'd been spooking enough at other things before then, but it caught me out while we were all stopped discussing something. You could read the other riders' minds "I'm glad that wasn't me" but their words were "How the hell did you stay on?" Peril concentrates the mind wonderfully. Great pets, good fun, good exercise, but ROSPA rated it the second most dangerous sport/pastime on a per practitioner basis. (Everyone asks: Cave Diving. Freefall parachuting and motor racing, even bikes, doesn't get close). Nice horse and will be good once the cause of fear is sorted out. I'm the most dangerous creature in the universe and I'm sitting on its back BUT I'm its friend, I'm on its side and it is under my protection. I will protect it from mattresses in the hedgerow, from tractors, even from roaring tractors with the pony-eating attachment on the front. There's only a few of us up to handling her, but with care we'll get her settled and happier. It takes time and careful avoidance of confrontation.

David
