Black and Green Television!

I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section, Chris, but I couldn't find a more suitable forum!

I, in my copious spare time, have started making the Argus TV as described in the June 1952 Practical Television magazine. I have had the shop-made blank chassis for a number of years now (ebay) and thought it's about time to start. I have ordered a couple of mains transformers from Majestic Transformers in Poole, Dorset and what a splendid company that is. Not too expensive but they supply super varnish impregnated custom products.

If anyone has a 6" CRT CV2810, I would love to buy it.

I will be detailing my progress as I get on and hopefully, it won't impede the Marconi 702 restoration too much.

Watch this space.

Hi Brian,

Granted, you could have put it in the colour section (well, green is a colourrolf_gif), I think monochrome green would still qualify as B&W......grin_gif

Hi Brian,

Would a VCR97 do?

Kind regards,

Peter

Oops! Hadn't read your Argus thread 'til now.

Hello Peter

I have a couple of VCR97s although they both seem to be a bit week but I need to see them when they have a full video drive and that won't be until I have got the RF section working properly. I'm waiting for some screened coil formers in order to try a better designed RF strip so can say whether or not I need to try another VCR97!
