Greetings from Scotland

Hello Guys.
This is my first post on this forum, I stumbled across it when I was looking through a thread on the UK Vintage forum and was reading a post from Jeffrey Borinsky.

Like Jeffrey I won't be a huge contributor but it looks good and hopefully I will make some comments from time to time.

Thanks for having me

Best wishes from Scotland

Trevor

Please forgive me for replying on Trevor's behalf. The main set is (surprise!) a Murphy V310 though it could be one of a few other models they made in the same style. The small one on the left is a bit hard to see but looks like an Ekco TMB272, a mains/battery portable. Took about 8A at 12V so would flatten your car battery pretty fast.

Jon Evans' website is an excellent reference for many early British TVs:

I only have one piece of Brit electronic gear, sad to say...But the one I have is a doozie- a RACAL RA 17, which was Britain's answer to the Collins R-390A military shortwave boatanchor. It has 20+ tubes, & uses the Barlow-Wadley loop tuning scheme, which was a way of cancelling the drift all tooob boatanchors have. It is very quiet, & the tuning scheme takes a little getting used to, but once you do, it works great. RACAL sold a few on this side of the pond, & they used std American tubes, but there are direct replacements for the Brit-spec tubes, in any case.

Welcome Trevor. I don't post here much either, but it's fun just to watch from the wings and drool over people's tele pictures.

Kind regards.

From Mike.
