5.0 out of 5 stars Wolsey WFAV25 1 Way variable Masthead Amplifier & PSU, 17 Aug 2011
This is an excellent product. It is easy to fit and doesn't require to have power in the loft as the PSU can be plugged in near the TV. The picture quality has been improved and I no longer get pixilation and picture break up. One improvement could be to include a very simple line diagram showing where the cut aerial cable in the loft should be fitted to which connection on the amplifier and similarly with the connections on the PSU. I rang the company to confirm my supposition as to which cable goes where. The company said that as this item was generally fitted by "professional" aerial fitters /electicians there was no need for a diagram. In summary, an exellent value for money product that "does what it says on the tin"

5.0 out of 5 stars Jackspeak to Civilian - A unique dictionalry, 4 Sep 2009
As a former Royal Navy Officer and colleague of Rick Jolly I may well be very biased. This is an outstanding book detailing the myriad of slang words and terms used by RN and RM service personnel from the various specialisations. Many of the terms are "colourful", historic and rather non PC but all display that unique sense of humour, sometimes black, shown by "Jack", "Royal" and "Jenny". I have often considered that this book should be given to all who join the RN/RM. Always a talking point, often taken to the loo for "a quiet read" and often referred to by new colleagues when I slip into Jack's vernacular, my copy is well thumbed. The cartoons by TUGG are absolutely brilliant and illustrate beautifully the sense and sensibility of many of the terms. Buy this book and a smile will never leave your face, your laughter will annoy people round you and your sides will always ache.
