Re: Remember These?

Just to throw in a random idea, is there anything you could do with a Hall effect sensor and a relay ?
I suppose the problem would be how to characterise a fault condition from some normal operating extremes.

Re: Nothing In Particular

Nope ...
Let me explain. Earliest sunset and latest sunrise are about 9 days either side of the shortest day, which is 21st or 22nd . Darkest evening is around 13th, darkest morning is around 30th Dec.

Oy :!: Shut up at the back there TheBass.
I was enjoying looking at that fine air-vaned capacitor amongst other things. It reminds me of all the bits of Kit my dad used to bring home from work or buy surplus for bits, when he was making things in the late 70's.

Re: Owston meet 2019 >1&2 June

Or it may be when the best system of the weekend is assembled and there are about 8 people there, as happened around 6 years ago ?
Edit : sorry it was the best system I ever heard, anywhere.

Re: Nothing In Particular

Ooof ! I'm going to have to re-group now and think hard. Seeing Terry Waite looking for a luggage trolley at LA-X airport isn't going to go too far in this company.
I did enjoy Wilfred Thesiger's book about his desert travels though.

Re: Nothing In Particular

Yeeech. :( Think I had that back in 1996. Doc (when I could get to see him) prescribed a course of antibiotic pills altho he said probably won't do much as it's probably viral.

Re: Remember These?

Ah yes - sounds good.
I was talking to Chris V on the phone this week, he's been following your thread with interest. He suggested another way of applying the feedback, but I'll have to get him to put it down in an email (with diagram) so I can understand.

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

Wow - are these the answer to the AER conundrum for Quasars ? Look like the biz , these ones are expensive but a fair bit less than the current AER's or Voxativ's. https://www.hificollective.co.uk/drive-units/cube-audio-f8-magnus.html I find the comments on spider design and the Qm values of 15 part...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Just enjoying ( now the 6th day ) the pleasures of viral tonsillitis. Hope things improve soon, it's a total waste of time when I can ill-afford it.

Re: Remember These?

Is it something related to the feedback that would cause a resonance or bass hump with the higher roll-off ? Can you remind me which page it is for the circuit?
