It's a cellar - so no great worries with damp/theft. Definitely TDLs - although cheapo varients - good spot Cheesy!

Have you any experience with Kelvin stuff? One of the switches on the front has packed in which means I have to plug/unplug from the mains, tsk! Would love to get it repaired...

Mr K


They look like standard 'rocker' power switches:

I use a Bush TR82 from the early 60's - a design classic. I bought it in the early 90's from an auto jumble and it is still going strong.

Only has LW and MW so it is slowly running out of channels. It has Marconi "electronics" and a Celestion Speaker. The battery is huge.

your switch will cost about 1.75 to replace ...very easy to do...they just push in to the housing with the connecters use small compression thingies(i forget the proper name)...easily a diy job.
