Meeting with Ferranti
« on: 03, November, 2012 - 22:30:18 »
I have a meeting with Ferranti next week about some projects, I will bring up the ULA for the C5 to see if they have stocks,  If ever I have needed discontinued parts these guys have always been able to source them.  I got a guided tour a few years ago of there stores and they have so much stuff that has been shelved from old projects.

Who knows!  I might strike lucky,  If they still have the source they will probably be able to do a run.

The problem is Plessey had a hand in it too, but the ULA was fabricated by ferranti so stocks may be available.
