New Col-r-tel on youtube

This recent post in the past week or so claims to have a new Col-r-tel.

This vid is full of flicker as he is scanning two segments at once because of the timing between 30fps cam and Col-r-tel timing. Just pause it to see the combined R/G or R/B or B/G.

He has another post with literature vid. Anyone we know?

There must be another kind of timing/frame rate issue peculiar to YouTube. Videotaped images from a Col-r-tel are recognizably in color and the flicker is the same as in person.

There are several of those restored & working, and at first, I thought that video was of one I've seen in operation in SoCal (he will post up if he wants name known)... His is on a Philco 12" set, but I don't know if this is in fact his, after seeing the other video of the unopened box for the wheel.

From my days in Charlotte, if I remember correctly, Harris Teeter is based near there with stores throughout NC, SC, VA, GA, TN, FL, DE, and MD. That a pretty big chunk of the country.
Maybe someone can contact Bob via their YouTube account.
