Won't be posting the DAPCI to moonbase if nobody else wants it as it will be cheaper to take it to the dump myself - so get it while it's "still here"!

The old Skybox F5 will be heading in the direction of the recycling bins at Kelso tip as that one doesnt work either....... FFS this is getting ridiculous.

Power supply this time - can you see the main problem?!

Can you "find room" for a TM 5500 DAPCI ( it can drive a dual axis motor combo)? If so, it's your's for the P&P costs!
That's a new one on me and I thought I knew all the TM boxes! I wonder if that could do 23cm ATV... And DATV...

For some unknown reason SSS still sell the XT-F!

I have one of those Manhattan receivers in the loft, they have quite a sensitive tuner if I recall correctly?

I was referring to the TM-5402 of the OP.

Yes, and a great blind scanner! Not much use today though. Roy Carman worked with Manhattan to get decent blind scan for this receiver.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

One day he will find his name is spelt correctly as well.

I will take it .. if no one else has claimed it ... i have one still in use here for moving my 1.2 Channel Master .. it would be useful to have a spare :)

If Rusty doesn't want it then you can certainly have it for the P&P costs!

Yes - O.K. :)

It was the dual axis control that interested me originally .. so i got one on ebay quite a few years ago now ..
Think it was made to control a model of Technomate motor that never appeared on the market as far as i know ..

The elevation control part of the receiver is DiSEqC ... so requires a 36 v actuator with DiSEqC built in - ( i did have one for a while) otherwise the elevation control needs to be via a V box to a standard 36v actuator .. i found in practice it was all a bit fiddly controlling both jacks in the T.M. menus , and preferred separate AZ/EL contols in the end .

All the analogue only stuff went in the scrap bin up the recycling centre late 2012. There may be a Pace cheeseblock one somewhere but it wasnt with the other receivers. Ive still got my old analogue/digital Echostar3000 somewhere
Another Echostar 3000 here as well - again, if anyone wants that, then it's theirs for the P&P costs!

DM 7020. This one appears to work. (Well its powered up & it hasnt gone bang yet) But of course the bloody remote doesnt do anything...... Sigh.

Is it worth testing the Vu+ Duo?? That one was retired with electronic faults long ago.

Put it like this - the old batteries have comprehensively leaked all over the inside.........
