SITE GUIDE IN BRIEF

This is a big site and the buttons on the top navigation lead to very many other pages of related information, theory, practical hints, book sales, reading suggestions, web links, history, personalities, restoration... and more. IMPORTANT: Don't neglect the links where given on pages or you will miss much.

Personal background

Qualified in Radio, TV and colour TV servicing, I worked in the rental TV trade and educational television programme production before training as a Design and Technology teacher, after which I taught technology in all its forms for many years before retirement in the summer of 2001. In between times, I gained a degree and ran my own retail TV, video and Hi-Fi shop and servicing business.

I've had articles published in 'TELEVISION', 'RADIO BYGONES', 'EVERYDAY PRACTICAL ELECTRONICS' and other magazines and my book, 'Design & Technology: Electronic Products for GCSE', is published by First & Best Ltd.

 My book 'Vintage Radios' is published by Crowood publications Ltd. 

YOU ARE VERY WELCOME TO E-MAIL YOUR ENQUIRY (see foot of this page), BUT... please read the FAQ page first: your question may already be answered.

Enjoy the website and thanks for visiting. TONY THOMPSON BSc.,  Cert.Ed., CGLI, RTEB.

Service information and free advice 

The data is priced as low as possible and the costs only reflect the work entailed in preparation. Advice is always free, so there’s no need to work 'blind'. Although I will always try to help in the best way I can, I cannot accept responsibility for the result of any action carried out as a result of my suggestions. After all, I can't be beside you when you are working on a radio. Safety must always be a prime consideration, as valve equipment usually has potentially lethal voltage levels and current availability.

The extensive range of circuit data available by post covers valve and early transistor equipment and includes radio, TV, car radio, record players, radiograms and tape recorders. If you can't find the set you want in the lists, it may be possible to help or suggest an alternative source.
