I started at Kettering which was remarkably quiet at 9.30, things looked as if they were picking up by 10am but by then boredom had set in and I was dubious if Corby would have anything of interest. I arrived as a Whippet whipped out and changed a battery at the car park and watched a Centre bus fly by, I thought they had pulled out, anyway it was 100% Stagecoach and ditto other than Diamond Coach decker at Kettering. I did stop at Nuneaton but the battery I had died, I've cancelled the replacement on Amazon as it is still out of stock and ordered a much cheaper Chinese look alike ( never learn) and hope it works, I dread to think what a Panasonic battery would cost. I think a bit of memory effect has started on all three I use at present, I've had them for some years and they get a hammering.
I'll probably go back to tele cine copying of the films I've got to assess at the moment so I don't keep hold of them too long, unless the supplier which is I think manufacturer can suggest anything I can mend such as the slipping drive belt then I'm happy to have a go. it is so frustrating. I wish there were alternatives to the one I got, a stronger more robust dare I say non Chinese one would be favourite , they do turn out some junk, all those who rush for Chinese buses will regret it very quickly. As my visit to Nuneaton was halted so quickly the clips I took will go to Youtube as internet viewing only. The advertising revenue plummets in the new year, its about 50% now of pre Christmas level so please support in all ways, order downloads or DVDs or watch the adverts on the clips.
