This is an archived version of his site
Hello. I am Peter Yanczer and I've put this site together, hoping it
will raise your interest and awareness in a great hobby. It's been a
challenging one for me that I feel it has been most interesting and
beneficial to me over the years.
My website is intended for you who are really interested in the
history and hardware used in early television as it developed. To
promote; developing, building and operating equipment of the sort
used during those pioneering days. As I just said earlier, it has
been challenging, (in plain words, not easy!) but it has been very
rewarding and satisfying for all of us too.
Click on Links (here, or at the top of each page) for access to all
the web pages.
It is a fact that most, if not all of the original television related equipment that appears from various sources and
auctions including eBay, sells at prices far beyond the average persons pocket book. By learning about and
constructing various items yourself, it is possible and affordable to get first hand experience and knowledge
about this early period in television development. Some of the equipment is very simple in nature and easy to
build, just as was done by hams and the general public in the late 1920s and early 1930s. An example for the
advanced experimenter that might be considered is the following:
From NBTV CDs or a 32 line camera
All of the installments for building this monitor/receiver are
included on this site.
If you have an interest in the workings and history of early
television, This can be an exciting hobby for you too!
If you already have a radio collection of sorts, a working
article of this type will be a important addition to your existing
material. This site can help you accomplish this.
If by chance you are interested in mirror screws, I have some
nice ones available.
Both 32-line and 60-line types are on hand. And there is
plenty of information available on this site to get you started.
Pass the word, Thank You!!
Quantities are very limited!!
|Three mirror screw receivers are shown here below.
Any TV collection without one of these is incomplete!
