The two I mentioned, however, were not Aeolian-Skinners but plain Skinners, built by Ernest M. before the merger with Aeolian.   John.

One (at the Methodist Church in Gidea Park, London) is rather curiously given as an Aeolian-Skinner, but I think this is a mistake.   John Speller

Without knowing what make/model it is, I can't offer any direct solutions by mail, other than to advise that this problem can be taken care of fairly easily. Usually, use of a power line filter and some ferrite beads properly placed will eliminate the problem. Most e-org service folks deal with this problem on a routine basis.   Close proximity to an AM transmitter will yield all kinds of interesting problems, including having the signal recitify in yout telephone. Nearby commercial FM transmitters are famous for screwing up channels 6 and 7 on your TV. Again, ferrite beads usually stop the problem there. It DOES provide a handy "music on hold" function for yer phone...'cept ya can't turn it off!!   DeserTBoB

(actually the anniversary of the first Sunday we used the instrument in worship).   Those congregations that don't have organs just don't know what they're missing. Soli Deo Gloria!   Neil Brown
