Re: Nothing In Particular

The very first time I've seen the RAF brothers show up on flightradar24. There were 2 hawks over the Yorkshire dales having done sorties around Scotland and half a dozen hawks over Snowdonia... what's going on? If it weren't for this I'd probably have thought little more of it but yesterday around ...

But with 65v on the anodes and CCS loads, more than enough for a phono.
Yep :-)

Re: This years systems

Seems reasonable Nick. I guess it's not too critical.

Can't help thinking a regulated supply might be better. Passing 66mA through the 5 sections of 600R drops 198V, so an HT of c130V. Not a lot in the scheme of things.

Second schematic down
Hmmm, thanks Ant. I need to reacquaint myself, IIRC the issue was understanding how much current is through the two triodes. I think I even emailed Brian Cherry but never got a response.

Re: General health matters.

Can't remember if I've said before but a colleague's father in law was in Wuhan up to November last year. It's probably just coincidence, but a number of people at work were very poorly at the end of last year, people who are rarely off sick were absent for 2 or 3 weeks and felt like death warmed up...

Re: How could anybody be THAT good at ANYTHING ??

I saw The Dubliners a couple of times in the late 80s, they were surprisingly good and they could all hold a tune. A lot of Irish traditional music is just that, interpretations of traditional music. I have a soft spot for Christy Moore who covers a lot of others' songs but also his own.

Re: Nothing In Particular

There's a photo I uploaded in the last post on page 786 - the tape measure is 5m for scale! Steve pointed me in this direction. Need to make sure the fan has unhindered airflow. The thing that I can't quite bottom in my mind is attaching the board to the chip in this orientation. Either the board wi...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Yes. CPU sinks with a fan. £8 plus a cheap LED PS rather than £50-odd a piece. If I get on with the MoFo I can think about a larger investment. But if I end up with 6 channels that's a lot of heatsink.

Re: Nothing In Particular

If you're going to do a run Ray I'll have some please. At the cost I'd have quite a few 6 to 10 even.

Re: what are you doing ?

Had a similar problem Neal. The downpipe outfalled into a gully but it drained very slowly. There were roots growing out of it. Long story short, the connection all the way to the soakaway was matted. Ended up with a new soakaway as well as the connection. Hope yours isn't as bad.
