Hi, I collect antique radios but have no interest (or space) for old TVs. I saw this behemoth in a local flea market and was wondering if any of your members would be interested. I had never seen one of these early projection TVs in person and imagine not many survive due to its size. If anyone is interested I'd be glad to forward them information for the flea market.
