Why no love for this GE roundie ?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/361069957669...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

It is indiana, and if my funds were a bit more stable right now--I would go for it.

The only lack of love may be because it is a "local pickup only" item, in Indiana.

If it was near here, I would be tempted to put on my nice clothes, and some aftershave, give it some red roses, and offer to buy it a drink.

I'd say the lack of love is because it isn't a RCA.

It's about 140 miles away from me. Problem is I don't have any more room for sets.

It looks like the last roundie GE. The CB chassis, with their color circuit that uses the crystal-ringer circuit. At least, the CRT doesn't have a cataract.

NO problem. Unlike SOME--I do NOT have the attitude of" If I can't have it then NO ONE should have it". I knew it was problematic right now for me to afford it--even though it is only a couple hours away--but I did NOT want it to go with no bids and end up in a PACKER TRUCK--which may very WELL have been the case otherwise.

Better ONE OF US get it--than a dump or fishtanker or such !!

I feel the same way also.. I wish there were more people in my area that collect these old TV sets other than me.. My local CL currently has quite a few vintage stuff that just sits on there, (mostly solid state 70s stuff and some B&W 40s sets) even at decent prices too..

I'm getting this set in unknown condition, and I'm going to expect that the tube is a dud so I don't get my hopes up to be disappointed..

IIRC there was not a separate sams for just the roundie. The CA did have its own but it was just an RCA clone, the CB sams covered both the rectangle and roundie, with the rectangle having an extra pcb shown optionally for the pincushion. I think it had a schematic glued to the inside of the cab that was factory (not sams) that was roundie specific, but hard to work from since it was glued in and not very large. you should prob get the GE tab book as it covers all the odd GE stuff, but I think that one also shows the CB as a roundie or rectangle as well. The CB was very different as far as circuitry with some odd faults not seen on other sets of the era. Its basicly just a big porta color demodulator.

I saw your video.. Nice set.. Looks like I saw a Sams in that video that covers the set.. which Sams? I did a search on GE Tab Book and nothing related shows up.. infact this new Google dumb search wants to add "Guitar" in the search results..
