Many thanks to Junk Box Nick for the FireWire card, never used this technology before but have an iPod with the required cable.

Also to Meerkat for the Uher PSU, this will save the cost of buying U2s, sorry, “D” cells so well worth fixing.

Thanks once again gentlemen.

Peter

A big thank-you to G6ONEDave for the catalogues and G8vsjDave for the components. Both arrived today. I think Dave/David must be the most popular name for our members!

When I was having to phone people to make appointments for Covid testing I would try and guess the age just from the names for a little amusement.

Much appreciated Gentlemen!

Seconded for the collection of Tektronix catalogues, free for the exceptionally reasonable cost of postage. Awesome!
