  All material published on this website is for informational purposes only and does not constitute professional, commercial or technical advice.  The use of ANY information is totally at YOUR RISK.  Whilst all due care has been taken to ensure accuracy of content, errors and omissions do occur.  If in any doubt, seek professional advice, or alternatively add salt to taste, whisk briskly for two minutes and serve on toast with a cup of strong black coffee.

  Some of the equipment here, especially Boat Anchors and Tubed gear in general contain HIGH VOLTAGEs, some considered LETHAL, others give great perms and afro hairstyles.  Please consider the consequences of YOUR actions when working on this type of equipment.  Whilst some voltages are not considered lethal, look at how much junk is around whilst working, and if you happen to get belted, what objects you may damage yourself on with the quick withdrawal.  When working with live equipment, wear insulating (rubber sole) shoes and keep one hand in your pocket whilst working with the other.  This prevents an accidental shock travelling from the contact hand to the other grounded hand via the chest and heart.


  You should never work on "live" circuits unless you know AND USE safe working practices. Many circuits that derive power from the mains supply (and some that don´t) contain LETHAL voltages as well as other hazards. If you are unsure, SEEK QUALIFIED HELP.

Live circuits must only be worked on by fully competant personnel.


  RF burns HURT BAD.  Any object that is RF 'Hot' will burn you quickly.  As little as 5w of RF can and will burn to the bone! (how do you think a microwave oven works??)

  This site is currently under construction.  Come to think of it, it will most likely be this way for ever!! Some things are never finished until they are tweaked to destruction, then just tossed away and replaced... 

  If there is information here that you find useful, great.... if not, try again later and you never know what will be added or when.....

  If you have any comments, questions or need more information on anything you see here, please feel free to send me an email and I will be more than happy to respond.  It may take a little while to get a response as I don't check the email bucket every day.  My email address appears in the 'Contact' page, I would love to hear from you.
