Shack Refurb’ 2013 (/cont)

My thanks to Alan, GM0USI for this photograph of my RACAL ‘shrine’.

Only one piece of hardware didn’t survive the move into the next room and back again. Note the coax lead dangling from the Adret signal generator. On powering it up, it was clear from the ‘garbage’ on the LED displays that all was not well. This was eventually tracked down to a faulty Octal Buffer and a dry joint on the CPU board. At the time the photograph was taken, the Adret was on soak-test … hence the coax.

The rolls of wire on the wall are a new addition … much better than all over the floor!
