Hello,
I'm Anthony. I'm in my late twenties but have always felt that old TV receivers and audio technology were better. I have a few not-so-old TVs from the late 70s and am fairly good at repairs. It's excellent to see a community such as this one exists.

welcome! Kind of surprising to see someone who collects SS sets. Only part of most SS sets(unless they have a delta gun CRT in which case I'll take the whole set) that follow me home is the circuit board.

Well, I'm closer to 30 but yeah, most of my friends and acquaintances have no idea why I'd want to mess with standard-definition analog tv! Thanks for the welcome.

Hi Bruce, thanks for the heads-up re: LNL... Syosset isn't far from me, and I have family there! Always good to see a local electronic-component supplier

And they wouldnt understand listening to doo-wop,
driving a Studebaker GT Hawk or Avanti, or watching a B&W movie.
I have done them all and thats the kind of things that make us
different & less boring.........
Welcome aboard

A still others in their 40s grew up with BW sets, upgraded to color later, and had to monkey around with wires and funky antennas to get the channels that played the BW re-runs and cartoons.
Glad you're here!:music:

Welcome aboard. I'm only slightly older than you are and I feel the same way about older technology. All of my sets so far are from the 80s though.

I worked with another Electrician named Anthony. I called him Tony. He said no, " it's Anthony". He's Polish and German herittage. :boring:

Well ta make ya feel more at home... My daily watcher and favorite color tv is my Sharp 25KT35 which is a 25" portable made in 1985, simulated wood grain, color job, with twist-click-manual volume and digital tuner and no matter what channel yer on when ya turn her off, you get 2 when you turn her back on.... I'm so happy with this one, I got another off CL in CT a few years ago..... Not like this one is goin' anywhere.... 1985 was a very good year... Best music too....
