It shows Brean Down as a good spot.... only if you can be 100% certain you can make a top landing, cos if you can't you are on the rocks or in the sea.

Just goes to show, ebay is a gamble... poor old Derek did very poorly on his radios:
MR200, two receivers, went for £25
REP four channel reed set went for £23, I would have expected £100 minimum!
REP three channel reed set went for £43
And some times you get lucky Phil, Derek's loss is my gain (sorry Derek).

I already have a REP 8 channel and a 3 channel set so bid on and won the 4 channel. I thought it would go way above what I was prepared to pay, but didn't :D

Is everybody too busy getting ready for Ponty to look on eBay?

Not on eBay... yet.

Just wondered if anyone has any interest in this gubbins that I acquired in a bundle.... all 'as is' and untested. I think they are identified correctly? I'm not wanting owt for them (maybe some postage if going overseas) but would prefer them to go to someone who might have a use for them - ie if anyone's going to put them on eBay it'll be me! Then I'll buy a Freddo with the proceeds.....

I spose I could be tempted to keep one of the Rands if they could be converted to modern electronics, but it's probably simpler to work my way past the fish hooks in my pocket and buy one of Tobe's modern versions.

Can take them to Ponty on Sunday if anyone wants to collect. If no-one's interested I'll stick em on the Bay at some point......

Too easy Stewart ;) . As luck would have it, they are the two ACE actuators I already have!! The Rand bits are the "solid gold hens teeth" for me 8-)

If one of the Adams is still available, I gladly would give them a good home and cover all necessary cost.

The mounting plates, idler gears etc would be great for keeping the examples Phil and I have going in the museum collection.

Cheers,
