Truly heartwarming news from Chris 163DT307 via the Transmission1 Forum (Link) here in the UK who is raising money for charity with help from some of the UK's finest operators:
"Alzheimer's Charity Build........
Let me say I am just blown away from the behind the scenes conversations I have had today.....the idea I had was to donate this Madison, eBay it off to the highest bidder and give the money to the Alzheimer's charity. This is not going to be a normal build and is not my point to build an all singing and dancing Madison, it's to give a little time and effort and to do something that has never been done before and probably never will again. The radio is not about the mods the looks etc but whats gone into this radio that counts. The radio is going to be blessed with some of the best and the brightest and kindest people I can muster and some one will end up with a one of a kind custom radio worked on by the best.
Anyone that touches the radio will sign and date the face-plate.
So far and more to be added.....
DT307... donation of radio and costs of shipping the radio all around the UK several times and any costs involved for work (not asking anyone to do it for free ) and my signature Madison counter install.
Nick AKA BLACKSPIRIT.........signature UK pic chip install and setup the radio
MARC AKA MAD MARC .........PSU guru and will refurbish the PSU.
Rob .........PCB guy ...... will design and etch a custom multiplex filter board for counter.
Ted... graphics guy .........new graphic so all the controls say what they do and not what they used to... also to help me with some of the design.
Alan AKA MERLIN ......offered his assistance.
THE-SHACK......offered his assistance.
DAVE AKA CUBWOLF.........signature Hy-Gain V beep install
Dave M0OGY review guy....will review the finished radio and post on his YouTube channel and explain all about the radio who did what etc.
THIS IS GOING TO TAKE A WHILE TO DO THE ROUNDS!
But I am done with my part and she will be starting her travels in the next week.
Guys I am so thankful to all my fellow techs/radio friends, you guys are awesome and bottom line its for a good cause and proud of all of you for helping me with this."
The UK certainly has some of the finest, kindest and most helpful operators and this is a story we are sure to return to in the future so keep checking back for updates and also check out the Transmission1 forum.
