Meet the Webmaster!
First of all I think a little introduction is in order! My name is Robert and I am in my mid-late fifties. I was born in Coventry and haved lived in sunny Suffolk for well over 20 years. I really hope you like my somewhat nostalgic and indeed quite technical website. This website was started in 2011 and has grown in fits and starts, based on time and my enthusiasm. I feel it is very important to maintain a record of these wonderful creations on-line so that they are never forgotten.
I retired from work in September 2014 having taken voluntary redundancy. I was a Local Government Officer and have been involved in the electronics and communications (and IT) industry for some 39 years. I have an HNC in Electrical & Electronic Engineering and an honours degree BSc(Hons) in Electronics and Communications Engineering (from The Open University).
I am a radio amateur and my call sign is G6GSG which shows how old I really am! During the early 1980’s I was a keen TV DXer and built and operated a colour TV transmitter on 70cm.

NB: I am always in search of data and material pertaining to Philips produced B/W and Colour TVs and VCRs from the 1965 to 1980 period.
If you have any Service Manuals/Circuits/Advertising Blurb/Images/Reviews/Memorabilia/Restoration Project Stories that relates to UK, Continental or Worldwide Philips models/sets (or Philips chassis derivatives e.g. Pye etc.) either in hard copy or better still electronic form please do get in contact.
This web-log is 100% funded by myself and I post all material I receive freely to fellow enthusiasts. If you think you can help, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You will receive full credit on this website for anything you can provide.
Thanks in advance…
