23rd-24th Nov 1946: radio times
23 Sat. Rather cold, dull, heavy rain commencing in afternoon. To Wimbledon along rail path in afternoon. Bought saccharin at Boots, a birthday card for Mrs. Matson at Woolworths, fish locally also a tube of glue. Experimented with two sets coupled to one aerial: a great increase in signal strength but much flatter in tune. Wrote letter to Chas. Staden enclosing it in a box with the L.W. coil ready for posting on Monday.
24 Sun. Rather cold, very dull, rain all day. Did not go out. John Child called in evening: showed him a few things – the micrometer etc and tuned in 3 U.S.A. stations on the short waves.
