** Err - is that RTV&H only or does it include EA ?

The name changed to EA in 1965 when Jim Rowe became editor.

** The 1965 date was taken from the SC web site -

but I know for sure it is wrong.

Seeing as I built the RTV&H, May 1966, 2MHz, 3 inch CRO.

It must have been a year or two later.

Anyone got the exact date the name changed ??

** Hmmm,

maybe that neat little all valve 3" CRO sitting on the shelf in my workshop
was described in the May 1966 issue of Electronics Australia.

Hi Zim, did you get that Altronics 1200watt inverter going. I see you bought
a 1500watt Sinewave inverter. I guess both Altronics units are now sitting
idle in the shed.
Best Regards.

The first enry for EA was Sept 65, then a gap 'till Aug 67.
Pity about that.


** Yes, the 3" CRO was shown on the cover of the May '66 issue.

I do remember the 3'' CRO, Phil.
A mate built one and asked me to fix it when he ran into some probs.


** Only one 6BL8 in the horizontal TB / amp had a sudden demise since I
built mine in 1970.

** And on the cover it says:

" Incorporating RADIO, TELEVISION & HOBBIES ".

Also, I'm sure that 3" CRO was advertised by kit suppliers as being from
RTV&H, May 1966.

This page

http://www.shlrc.mq.edu.au/~robinson/museum/swap_list8.html

suggests that RTV&H started Jan 1956

and EA started in Jan 1966

Someone has a Web page with a huge collection of RTV&H cover page photos.
I'll try to find it.........

Hi Folks,

Just to let you know that my RTV&H DVD arrived today.

First impressions ? It's brilliant !!!

The DVD covers from April 1939 to March 1965.
Is in PDF format (rather than some weird proprietary format, like so many
others).
The resolution varies from high definition colour (covers, photographs, etc)
through to lower definition B&W for less important stuff (adverts, etc).
There is 4.4 Gb material on the DVD.

It even has the Index page of each mag done separately in high definition,
so you can print out a (thick) index.

There has been a huge amount of work gone into it. I would recommend it
unreservedly.

It was produced by:

John Wright
Australian DX Publishing
29 Milford Rd
Peakhurst
NSW 2210

You can buy it from Silicon Chip for $69 inc postage.

(I have no connection with S.C. or the publisher, etc, etc)

regards ....................... Zim ........................... VK3GJZ

**Cool. Now what will I do with all my 1930s and 1940s Radio and Hobbies
mags?

Seriously, though, see if you can find the issue where in the news section
they report on the development of the 'Transfer-Resistor'. I have the
original somehwere. It is a real hoot. They didn't forsee a great future for
the new device, except in the area of portable radios and the like.

Thumbs up to SC
Can we assume an EA DVD is not too far away then?

and they were right, the Transfer-Resistor, a.k.a. Transistor, did not
last long, to be replaced by F.E.T.'s (yes, I know the T is for
transistor, but they operate on different basis) and I.C.'s.
