If all has gone well, the site is now hosted by “Mythic Beasts” in Cambridge, UK.
A posting on a Yorkshire TV facebook group provided us with this excellent picture of the “twin” of NUB327F – we still haven’t been able to figure out what the actual registration is though (see update)!
Here is a photo of one of the restored Mk II/III PWM EHT units. Continue reading “MkIII PWM EHT Module”
I’ve spent almost all of this weekend on YTTTV maintenance as she’s had none in such a long time.
Latest photo – I managed a few more hours today.
Whist waiting for answers to some ‘real work’ questions, I’ve gone for ‘first light’ on the PWM.
This weekend I’ve been working on the ‘final’ Vivat PWM – this is the ‘US spec’ one that we changed the mains transformer on. The electrolytic capacitors are stamped ‘1953’, so it’s a good early one from MkII days.
We have moved the content of the old “projectvivat.co.uk” site to the BECG website so it will be kept with all our other projects. The old site will be redirected to this one in due course.
Please see the “Project Vivat” page for the entry point to the pages.
