In case anyone was wondering, the receiver has found a home with Paul,
WB8TSL. He tells me he's got it receiving WWVB already. It will need a
little TLC, but it was good to see its basic functionality confirmed.
I've posted the scanned copy of the manual on my website at <http://www.pumpkinbrook.com/DY-5842/

Thanks for the interest, and the replies.
