Below you find a part of the tube collection Bryce Ringwood.

For reasons of space have to keep the collection down to a few. I repair vintage radios as a paying hobby. I keep records of them for interest. Call sign used to be G8ARY many years ago when I lived in UK. I began my hobby by building a crystal set radio using Ivalek headphones, Repanco coil and Jackson Bros variable capacitor (which I still have!). It really didn't work very well. I used to listen to short wave on my Dad's radio and later on a Wireless Set No. 19. I tried without success to receive the first Sputnik using an R208 receiver on 20 and 40 MHz. I built my own receivers and transmitters for the amateur 70cm band and had a contact from Leeds in the UK with a Norwegian station using my 4X150A homebrew transmitter. Before leaving England for South Africa, I hurriedly built a five band shortwave receiver to listen to the BBC. On arrival, I more or less gave up radio for 20 years until a colleague presented me with a very broken NC 100. (Meanwhile, I had been very busy making electronic equipment for strain measurement and helping my children with radio control.) The NC 100 seems to have acted like a magnet, attracting all sorts of strange equipment to make a collection of sorts. My Wife bought the Phantom de Luxe for my Birthday.

This tube needs to be kept absolutely clean and free from contamination, in common with all electrometer valves. Mullard supplied it in a large carton with the tube inside the sealed cellophane bag shown here.
