Now that is a very interesting hangar!

When it was described as 'wonky' I assumed it was a bit decrepit and falling down! Not a bit of it I see. Very artistic. I like :-D

A really good meeting in a great location. Wonderful cars, good chat, and the museum is excellent.
I remember seeing the TSR2 flying on my way to school.

Bought a couple of years ago in Ware, while I was down for the rally in Kettering, only £120 and free CD changer under the driver's seat.

The old drivers seat collapsed and it was the cheapest replacement option.

Shame the CD changer isn't behaving itself, but the seats do look great.

Probably fixable James. I'm convinced it was OK when Steve (trainman) initialised it.

Well, all it seems it that it has 'lost' the right channel. It might be something as simple as a failed solder joint.

Hopefully but the fact that all the music is in the right channel makes me suspicious.

The way I believe the ICE works is the same as a seperates HiFi system. Your tuner, tapedeck, CD player and turntable all output the same levels, but the amplifier (and equaliser) then adjust the output to the speakers. The fact that only the CD changer has a problem suggests that it (or the CD changer connector on the amplifier) is at fault.

I had a long and delightful chat with David Hallworth on the 'phone last event who told me all about the show.

Gosh, it was excellent and I'm now fully up to date with all the news.

David's narrative was so good I felt I was there :-D

Thanks David!
