Early Electronic Television
Build Your Own TV Set
Before World War Two several magazine articles appeared in the U.S. and Britain giving details on building TV receivers. Here are some of them.
The Book of Practical Television, edited by G. V. Dowding, published in 1935, printed pictures and a description of a television receiver built by its writers.
|In July of 1937 Wireless World, a British publication, ran a series of five articles with full details on building a television receiver. The design of this set is typical of those made in England in 1936 and 37. It is posted here for those who are interested in the technical details of early receivers. The file is quite large - high speed connection suggested|
