How many 405-line sets are operational today?
Extending a request from Panrock...
Posted by: Panrock
Do you watch 405-line television, using a converter or other method? Or do you know of others who do and may not post here?
If so please post in this thread.
Of interest :
a) The number of working and usable 405-line or dual-standard sets you (or your nominee) has access to. You may list them if you wish.
b) The method(s) you use to obtain the signal.
c) Your rough location in the UK - or the world!
If this can be converted into a 'poll' by a moderator, all well and good. However I don't understand how to do this myself, and am not sure whether it would be a flexible enough format.
Grateful for your help! As an example, I'll start the ball rolling with my own answers:
a) 3: 'Bude'. Philips 17TG100-U, Sony TV9-90.
c) SW Midlands

Thanks for adding your 405-line collection to the list at Vrat. Its not too late, Steve has stated he will be keeping an eye on all threads that are gathering data and will update his stats as time passes and further sets are reported on all the fora.
I think the lack of contributions to the thread here was not through apathy but more to do with most members of Vrat also being members of UKVRRR, therefore decided it made sense to post their collection data over there. As I'm not a member of UKVRR mine was the singular contribution here, now I don't feel so lonely ?

Great to know the Ultra and Pageant are still giving you good service.
