Here is yet another non radio project from the past.
But it is electronics from the 1970's and what you do to fix a perceived problem.
I am glad I put the project in a box under the bench and not in the bin.
Still clearing out junk from the workshop and when I found this device it took me some moments to remember what the hell it was.
Must be getting old!

Cheers, Fred.

Yes I will get back to radios soon.............................

There is nothing like diversity to keep the mind active. Nr 2 Oscilloscope (BWD) decided to have a hissy fit & loose the trace around midnight, something else to fix. I was working on an OK1 sig gen that had all its coils wires broken off. Believe it or not its book was inside it; rather vague (full of holes) as it did not have much info on the coils. However, if you knew enough to be messing with one of them you could workout which were the resonant coils & where they went. of course phasing the coils is a requirement or it will not run.

Took the tractor for a nice drive in the sunshine, to do a delivery & then turned to the lawn with the push mower. I should get some 410 cartridges to shoot the mozzies'': Big this year, think they have been biting joggers on steroids.

So after pacifying the back, its back to welding & the next mowing exercise, after that will involve a tractor. After that I may get back to radios.

Wednesday looks like rain, so I might get at a commercial radio repair job on a chassis that needs a birthday.

No stopping here, its normally 16Hrs+ of daily entertainment
