  THIS SITE RELATES TO MY SMALL COLLECTION OF  NOMBREX TEST EQUIPMENT HERE IN EXMOUTH DEVON.

MY YOUTH WAS LARGELY SPENT FINGERING RADIO MAGAZINES AND THE OFFERINGS FROM NOMBREX WERE

 ALWAYS TOP OF MY WISH LIST WHILE BEING WELL OUT OF MY FINANCIAL REACH.. MY
 FIRST SIGNAL GENERATOR WAS A GREEN GREYSHAW INSTEAD OF THE MODEL 29 I REALLY WANTED. :-(

 

RECENTLY I WAS ABLE TO AQUIRE A VERY RARE EXAMPLE OF CROSSO AN EARLY ELECTRONIC GAME.
WHICH BROUGHT TO LIGHT NOMBREX,S PREVIOUS EXISTENCE AND APPARENT BIRTH IN BURNHAM ON SEA SOMERSET.

note received from geoffrey cousins :...nombrex traded from dunstan road estate burnham-on-sea before moving to  exmouth .
