  1. A lot of Far Eastern portable sets from this era had a similar style to this, with a white case, thick bezel around the screen, minimal controls & a badge where the VHF tuner would have been.

    They seem to be a good place to start a vintage TV collection, being in a sweet spot of having simple & reliable electronics that can normally be fixed if anything goes wrong.

    IIRC Teleton was a Mitsubishi sub-brand. I remember my Uncle having a receiver made by them which survived well into the 1990s, being used by my cousins for many years.

  2. It was unusual to see a colour set with a continuous UHF tuner at this time… though I can certainly remember seeing some. Of course, the earliest Baird 700s had them. They were very common on black and white sets, and you saw plenty of those with room for a VHF tuner. I had a JBI 12P63 (an NEC badge engineering), that was still in reasonable working order in 2012… I only scrapped it because I no longer had room for it.
