Hello all,

I notice that the brand name for this manufacturer comes up as "Mickey Mouse" for all models.  In fact this brand was only used on a few pre-war models.  I can't seem to change this using "Suggest Change".  The brand should be simply "Astor".

Regards,

Stuart

Dear Stuart
Thank you for your kind notice. Yes, we know. We are in train to delete all unnecessary Code-9-Names. For that we first have to connect them to the manufacturer/brand. Then we can delete those Code-9-Entries. And as a next step to bring those brand names which are not there in General to a forum article connected to the maker or into a special field which informs but is not taken into a search (index or non index search).

During this transition period we have this problem. Hopefully not for long. When this is done I will delete this thread.

Hello,

I would like to second the suggestion from Stuart regarding the Astor brand name. I was employed by Electronic Industries LTD in my youth, and the name was always Astor. I  also noticed the Mickey mouse discrepancy, but did not know how to address it. I am in the process of adding a few of the transistor models, and each time I upload a new model, I also find the Mickey Mouse. As an aside, the company got in trouble with Disney and soon dropped the name.

thank you for a wonderful site

Dear Stuart and Gilles
Thank you both for telling about the Mickey Mouse brand which should be removed. I saw now that the brand was not done by code-9 but with the new version (or transferred to the new version). But now I have completely taken it out - expect naming the brand in the brand description. The effect will be reflected by tomorrow (batch process).

Would be good if somebody who knows would check the models with this brand if it is put into the model name. Otherwise Mickey Mouse would not be found anymore. At the moment we show 8 Astor models with "Mickey Mouse" in the name, beginning in 1933, ending 1939.
