  1. I get notices from Eddystone Group but find myself unable to reply. Attempts to do so fail. Why? Terry VO1TMM (Newfoundland, Canada;).

    GE Chris, can you please delete the two 740 rxs for sale. They went at a rally recently as soon as I put them on the table!

    I have an eddystone speaker for sale, excellent condx, the round one I think it is a 935.
    Could you put it on this website for £75 before I put it on ebay. Many thanks

    Hi. My late uncle was a keen amateur radio enthusiast for about 50 years. I have a large collection of his Lighthouse Magazines and also your news letters (I think from issues 1-60). I wondered if you could advise me if these items are collectables or only fit for the recycling bin. Many thanks

    • Hi Sheena. Lighthouses magazines are not so collectable now that they are available to download as pdf’s from our website. If you wish I can advertise them in the for sale section. Regards Chris G0EYO EUG WEbmaster

        Hi Chris. Thanks for your reply. Yes that would be good please. I don’t want to put them in the re-cycling if someone wants them. They would really need to be collected from me as it would cost a fortune to post them. I am in Maghull, which is in between Liverpool and Southport. Thank you.

        • I have put them on the for sale part of the site. Good luck. Chris

            Hi Chris. I’m assuming that there has been no interest in the news letter. Could you please remove them from the for sale page. I think they will have to go in the recycling. Thanks for your help. Sheena

    Hi my neighbor has an Eddystone Marine Radio? She thinks the serial no. Is IM3292. There is another no. She thinks is possibly a model no. That is 587OA, do you have any information that could help her with the background of her radio? thank you..John..

    • Sounds like an S870A with a serial numberIM3292. Have a look at the Quick Reference Guide on the website and also the service manual and other data on there.

  6. I have aquired an Eddystone radio which I cannot find referenced in your “Post War Eddystone Radios” PDF. The radio is an Eddystone EC10A, serial number, CP0995. The front panel is identical to the “standard” EC10, mark one, except that it has brackets on each end for rack mounting. The rear panel has what looks like an old UHF screw connector for the aerial connection, together with a socket marked “SKT1” and another marked “LS” (there is a speaker inside). The power supply unit takes either 12volts or 24volts DC (via what looks like a Bulgin socket), addressable with an internal switch. It is marked STRATTON & SONS. The frequency range is the same as the standard EC10. It looks factory adapted. Any info on this strange set?

    • Eddystone often made specials for certain customers ie BBC, DWS, etc and if this is a factory mod that is probably what happened.No way of knowing who the customer might have been but sometimes you find a customers label on receivers eg BBC.

      • Oh, that’s a shame. I’d imagined that the Eddystone User Group would have records of serial numbers on film or microfiche. Maybe I should take it to the next Eddystone rally. Where are these held and how often?

        16
        • no such thing as an Eddystone rally but there are radio rallies held throughout the country but less than there used to be.
