Many thanks to Dave (Cre8anet) for the various items for the MEET collection, including some very high power amplifiers, scopes and tape recorders. Even the cute thermochromic mugs we had our tea in ended up coming with me!

Hi!

My grateful thanks to David Taylor G4EBT for the non–working Curve Tracer project built in a lovely little wooden box and a beautifully lettered panel, I shall enjoy looking at this and writing up Part 14, Chapter 182 of my T & M Theory & Repair Book!

(Book on hold because our heating has broke down and my fingers get too cold in our front room in the present very cold weather!)

Thank you to Nigel (Vinylspinner) for letting me have a BSR autochanger, and taking the trouble to pack and post it too.

Many thanks to Peter, Electronpusher, for the Jupiter 2010 function generator. Now all I need is some spare time to use it!

Cheers Peter.

Hi!

My grateful thanks to Bill Nichols "WME_Bill" for satisfying my curiosity about the SE Labs SM112 Oscilloscope by allowing me to purchase his, it arrived well packed, in completely satisfactory condition, and once I've run an up–to–date "Autocal" on my PM3394 I'll put the SM112 at work on my project bench!

Grateful thanks to Glyn (Welsh Anorak) for allowing me to be the new custodian of a regulator for my Osaki Explorer 10R 10" portable TV, more commonly seen as the 'Nikkai Baby 10'. The little set should hopefully outlast me, now.

Hi!

My grateful thanks to Hugh (Member "Stockden" for the original copy of EMER Telecommunications A012 "Electronic Test Methods And Practices" – the excellent CT160 diagram and valve tester theory in this is perfect for my T & M book, the writing of which is still busily on the go!
