It was second nature to me as a kid (in Coventry), did it without even thinking.
With the tuner design that Bush used, sequential numbering was the only way - until they realised that the design was eminently suitable for the first 'Bush' button sets ...raditechman wrote:Of course on many tuners you could move the "biscuits" (clip in coils) and put the channels adjacent if the customer wanted it that way. The numbers of course would not be correct.
Not possible on the Fireball tuner.
I think it was better to have a long spin, say in London from 1-9, as it gave the contacts a bit of a clean!.

1 to 9 was only 5 clicks if you went 13, 12, 11, 10, 9 and vice versa. As for keeping the contacts clean, they only moved to select Band I or Band III, so it didn't matter which way you went!

You are correct, Frank - it was 9th July 1968, to be precise and the Emley Moor collapse was the following March.nuvistor wrote:From what I recall, Yorkshire TV started in the summer 1968 and the mast fell down March 69, I think the loss of revenue through a smaller service area until the new mast was constructed gave the very young Yorkshire TV a few financial headaches.
