Early Electronic Television

Stromberg-Carlson 112M

We recently acquired a package of technical information on this set. It was sent to a TV repair shop in Philadelphia in 1947 by the Stromberg-Carlson company. Schematic diagrams for the TV receiver show a design very similar to the RCA TRK-9 and 12, with a five channel tuner with motorized control (pushbuttons activate a motor to tune channels 1-5).

The set uses the RCA deflection and HV chassis used in several other pre-1945 sets, including the Emerson and Andrea 8-F-12. It also has a AM-SW radio. Here are the operating instructions.

None of these sets is known to exist today.
