Restoring a Vintage Color Television Set

20 Jan 2002. Just returned from a weekend visit to the Early Television Foundation in Hilliard, Ohio. In a very short time, the museum has managed to develop a premier, stunning display of instruments celebrating the development of distant vision technology. After being greeted at the reception desk, whirling sounds draw the new visitor to tiny, flickering red-orange images -- working examples of mechanical television. And that's just the start.

Here's another small corner of the museum and my favorite...

Early Color Room

Here I tried, really tried,
but just couldn't keep hands
off -- I've just tweaked the hue
control on the museum's operational
CT-100. You'll hear much more from and
about the ETF museum in the coming years...
