Portsdown and 5.6 for sale

Post by G0CHK » Thu Jun 11, 2020 8:43 am

Due to increasing infirmities I have decided to dispose of my Portsdown and 5.6 tv attempts. Apart from anything else I can’t the piddly components.
So I am inviting offers for all or some of the following components which save for the antennas and microscope may be posted or collected from PO18 8BE. Except for a couple of PCBs all are new/ unused.
This will save my XYL having to dispose of stuff when I am SK.
Please use email as I can’t cope (or usually find) my phone.

As a recent member (lapsed!), I am not sure of the cost of parts for the various projects - hence this message.
I am contemplating building the Portsdown and would appreciate knowing how much you were asking for the Portsdown items you are selling?

Know what you mean about the small components. I was last active on atv in the early 80's using home built Wood and Douglas kits (still have the tx strip for some reason!) - much simpler to use, though it took up most of the 70cm band! Will have to get used to this digital age though!
