Re: On My Bench.

Thanks all. I've started off with a 4w (phwooooaaaarrrr!) Chinese dual band handheld (walkie talkie in old money) and made my 1st contacts today across SE London. £17 from Ali Express, awesome. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005005747371131.html?

Ah, I didn't know that. There's a few parallels with DIY HIFI I'm finding for sure.

I passed, I got my licence yesterday and now operate as M7IPY...'M7 Hippy ' 🤭

M7DTB had already been assigned as had PHP (pot head pixie), double meh!

Re: Germanium Amplifier

I was part-paid (aka "take them please before I dump them on eBay") for a repair job a while back in a few OC35s! Matched pairs apparently back in the 60s or 70s and stored in these polystyrene boxes.

Shiny shiny!

Re: On My Bench.

Awesome, thanks for the Tantlum info Mr Jones. Yep, every Tantlum cap I've found failed in the past has gone short and occasionally physically cracked as in this case.

Re: On My Bench.
