Mechanical Television

Peter Yanczer

Peter Yanczer was America's foremost expert on mechanical TV. For several years he was president of the Experimental Television Society, a club for mechanical TV enthusiasts which he founded. In 2004 he decided that he could no longer run the organization. We have added Peter's site to ours. Please take a look at the website - it is full of fascinating information on mechanical television.

Peter died on March 16, 2014. Here is a notice from Fred Prohl of the Indiana Historical Radio Society:

To: Indiana Historical Radio Society members

Regarding: Peter and  Edna Yanczer

In February of this year IHRS member Edna Yanczer passed away at her home.  We just received a notice that following a two week stay in hospice, Peter died on March 16, 2014.  Peter and Edna have been members of the Indiana Historical Radio Society for close to forty years.  Edna will be remembered for her outgoing personality and her willingness to help out where ever possible at vintage radio gatherings.  Peter was noted for his exceptional skills in radio, television, and electro-mechanical restorations (television experimenters.com).  Edna was 87, Peter would have been 87 the end of April.
The Yanzcer team will be missed.
