    G’day Chris…… I’ve sent a couple of requests to Ian Nutt asking for the iron dust/slugs for the antenna coil for Band 1 in a 680X… silence was very pregnant…no response.
    I’ve also asked via email to you to publish my request on this site but to best f =of my knowledge I’ve never seen it or eve if it got to you.
    What do I have to do to seek amends, please?

    • Pete you sent me an e mail on the 10th saying you wanted slugs etc as if you thought I sold them. I advised you to contact Ian Nutt. I cannot answer for his actions or lack of. He does it as a hobby rather than for profit. At no stage have I received an e mail from you asking me to put in a request on the wanted page of the website for your items. If you had I would gladly have done so and will do so now if you wish. Please spell out clearly what it is you are looking for and any options you would consider. You should also consider joining the Yahoo EUG group forum as most of our enthusiasts help each other out via that forum. Chris G0EYO

        Thanks Chris….my apologies for misinterpreting the procedure.

        Would you then list my requirement for coil slugs..

        WANTED for 680X… replacement slugs to fit the antenna coil Band 1 on the 680X receiver. . The one in that position stuck and cracked and yet to be removed.
        Quantity of 2 would be desirable. The usual remuneration needs will be addressed , Thanks Pete VK3IZ QTH R
