Thumbs up WANTED! RCA XL100 or Colortrak

Anyone in the Harrisburg, PA area have any 19" table model sets that are working that you don't want any more? It will go to a good home. 80s vintage preferred.

feel like a road trip to NH? :-)
I'll post a photo of ours anon... purchased new by my in-laws; sucka weighs a ton... but it's a portable; it has a handle on it!

In all seriousness, I don't think Mrs. H is attached to it, and it takes up space in the basement. It was working last that I knew... haven't had it on for probably 5 years or more, though...

That is one COOL set, even though it isn't an XL or Colortrak. I like it. The built in antennas remind me so much of better times in my life.

It dont say it but it is what was to become the XL100.
It is a heavy set but they came out with a heavier one a
few yrs later. A real beast with a handle & big steel fold down
chassis. IIRC that was the colortrak.

It is still a cool and classy set. If it were many hundred miles closer, I would love it.

Anyone driving from NH to the Harrisburg PA area??

Yup, Pitts is a bit too far but thank you. Besides, it would never fit in my Impala.

These are the twin FU505W sets once again. The one has the RCA factory cart, and currently hooked to a toploader RCA Selectavision VET250 VCR. Both work flawlessly.

Both have 100% perfect pictures, I replaced all the caps on the convergence board and many on the chassis of the one without the cart. The one without the cart, the channel indicator seems to stay on the number 8, and the one on the cart has a different volume control....it was sheared off when I got it and the shaft on the only replacement I could find was too short, so I had to mount a longer knob with a set screw in the middle. Barely noticeable, and has worked fine for me for the last decade. That is, if you're picky

Both are 21" sets, and are heavy as hell. As you can see, the TVs are mounting, but the owner of a few of these sets I've recently done (a good buddy of mine) is coming to pick them up this weekend, so it won't be quite as bad down here
