ThanksI'd like to express my thanks to the following for their help with this site.
This site has a lot of large data files. At one point I used to host it at home on my Sun Ultra 60 workstation. But with an ADSL line the bandwidth was just too large. This also means it can't be hosted on the cheap hosting services, due to the disk space and bandwidth issues.
I'd like to thanks Gordon Hudson GM4SVM of Hostroute who provided complimentary web hosting facilities for several years. Unfortunately, it appears GM4SVM is no longer the MD, so Hostroute have declined to provide free hosting any more.
I then put a request on the amps mailing list, to request donations to help with the hosting costs.
I've received 6 donations from hams
- IT9BLB (Joe)
- W5VSD (W C Mueller)
- K6GT (George Daughters)
- Charles Rushing
- G4FTC (David Sparvell)
- KD0EAG (David Witten)
Unfotunately, sufficient funds were never received, so once again, the site had to be hosted on my home computer. I changed to a Sun Netra T1, as the power consumption was lower than that of the Ultra 60. (To add to complications, both got blown up in a lightning strike, but I had spare hardware).
On the 15th December 2009, Eric Jorgensen, a partner in Megagate kindly offered me free hosting. As such, the donations received from the above 7 hams have either been refunded, or will be within the next few days, after funds are transfered to my Paypal account.
Supply of tube data sheetsNumerous people have supplied me either photocopies, electronic scans, or pdf files for data sheets. I don't have a list of them all, but will add them as and when I find an email with a data sheet attached. If I have ommited you, please excuse this, and let me know.

- And many more. I'll go back through my old emails slowly, trying to dig out the names, but if you have sent me something, and are not listed, please let me know. If you want to be listed, but have never sent me a data sheet, you know how to get listed!
I'd like to express my thanks to Megagate who are providing free hosting for this site.
