Re: B-7971 Clock
I would like to take you up on your offer. I would like to get a
programmed PIC and the circuit details. Please let me know what the
costs would be. I want to get those tubes out of the cupboard and put
to some good use. I have made a switching HV supply and will contact
Chris for some smart sockets.
Thanks for your help.

I haven't been getting the time to do what I need to do either !
