Television Receivers
Television has come a long way from the early TVs to the HDTV Plasma Screens of the new millennium.   While the quality of the current systems is almost beyond belief, it is a wonderful experience to turn on one of the old sets, wait for it to "warm up" and enjoy television as it was 50 years ago.

THAT WAS THEN THIS IS NOW

Most of the early television receivers are gone, long since discarded.  Collecting and restoring TVs is not as easy as radios.  Most early TVs are found in and around large markets like New York or Chicago.  Corpus Christi, for instance, did not have a television station until 1954 so early sets just don't exist here.  Proper crating and shipping of a console color TV from the Northeast typically costs $400 to $600.  They are more complex than radios and specialized parts such as picture tubes, flybacks and yokes are very hard to find.  A 15GP22 for the CT100 is virtually impossible to find.  Click on a name to follow the link.
