Richtige Fernseher haben Röhren!

In Brief: On this site you will find pictures and information about some of the electronic, electrical and electrotechnical technology relics that the Frank Sharp Private museum has accumulated over the years .

Premise: There are lots of vintage electrical and electronic items that have not survived well or even completely disappeared and forgotten.

Or are not being collected nowadays in proportion to their significance or prevalence in their heyday, this is bad and the main part of the death land. The heavy, ugly sarcophagus; models with few endearing qualities, devices that have some over-riding disadvantage to ownership such as heavy weight,toxicity or inflated value when dismantled, tend to be under-represented by all but the most comprehensive collections and museums. They get relegated to the bottom of the wants list, derided as 'more trouble than they are worth', or just forgotten entirely. As a result, I started to notice gaps in the current representation of the history of electronic and electrical technology to the interested member of the public.


Following this idea around a bit, convinced me that a collection of the peculiar alone could not hope to survive on its own merits, but a museum that gave equal display space to the popular and the unpopular, would bring things to the attention of the average person that he has previously passed by or been shielded from. It's a matter of culture. From this, the Obsolete Technology Tellye Web Museum concept developed and all my other things too. It's an open platform for all electrical Electronic TV technology to have its few, but NOT last, moments of fame in a working, hand-on environment. We'll never own Colossus or Faraday's first transformer, but I can show things that you can't see at the Science Museum, and let you play with things that the Smithsonian can't allow people to touch, because my remit is different.

There was a society once that was the polar opposite of our disposable, junk society. A whole nation was built on the idea of placing quality before quantity in all things. The goal was not “more and newer,” but “better and higher" .This attitude was reflected not only in the manufacturing of material goods, but also in the realms of art and architecture, as well as in the social fabric of everyday life. The goal was for each new cohort of children to stand on a higher level than the preceding cohort: they were to be healthier, stronger, more intelligent, and more vibrant in every way.

The society that prioritized human, social and material quality is a Winner. Truly, it is the high point of all Western civilization. Consequently, its defeat meant the defeat of civilization itself.

Today, the West is headed for the abyss. For the ultimate fate of our disposable society is for that society itself to be disposed of. And this will happen sooner, rather than later.

OLD, but ORIGINAL, Well made, Funny, Not remotely controlled............. and not Made in CHINA.

Every CRT Television saved let revive knowledge, thoughts, moments of the past life which will never return again.........

Many contemporary "televisions" (more correctly named as displays) would not have this level of staying power, many would ware out or require major services within just five years or less and of course, there is that perennial bug bear of planned obsolescence where components are deliberately designed to fail and, or manufactured with limited edition specificities..... and without considering........picture......sound........quality........

..............The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of todays funny gadgets low price has faded from memory........ . . . . . .....
Don't forget the past, the end of the world is upon us! Pretty soon it will all turn to dust!

Have big FUN ! !

HIRUNDO (INDESIT) MOD. T12" LI MATR. 781 YEAR 1978.





















































The HIRUNDO  (INDESIT) MOD. T12" LI  MATR. 781 It's a 12 inches B/W television with 6 programs preselection and classic potentiometers tuning search for each program.The use of voltage-variable diode-capacitors, such as varactor diodes, permits the electronic tuning of radio receivers and television receivers by the use of DC control voltages; so that the tuning elements no longer need to be intimately associated with the tuner. Thus, the tuned circuits of the tv receivers may be located remotely from the devices used to provide the necessary DC tuning voltages. In addition, the compact size of the voltage-variable diode-capacitor tuning circuits makes it desirable to use such tuning circuits in many tv applications which formerly used mechanically adjusted variable capacitors or the like as the tuning elements.

To employ voltage-variable diode capacitors in pushbutton tvs, however, especially in multiband pushbutton tv sets , a problem exists in providing a "memory," so that operation of a pushbutton will provide consistent tuning of the tv receiver to the station which is to be selected by that pushbutton. In addition it is necessary to provide some means for providing the initial tuning of the tv receiver for each pushbutton location in a manner which is reliable and inexpensive.

It can be powered even with a 12volt source with a special socket on the rear side.Recently, it has become more popular than ever to watch TV in a car as the number of cars increases. In general, a storage battery of 12 volts is used in small cars while one of 24 volts is used in large cars so that there is a disadvantage that a separate power supply device is required for driving a TV set in compliance with the respective battery used in the car. The present invention relates to a power supply circuit of a television receiver used in an automobile, and in particular to a power supply circuit of a television receiver which enables two different voltages from two kinds of supply respectively mains at 220v and dc 12v.


It doesn't weight much sicne it has not mains transformer in it but a special power supply converter.The horizontal deflection circuit for a television receiver is designed without a transformer so that the chassis is trafo less. The mains ac is rectified directly without a transformer and applied to a pump stage. Tee pump stage is coupled via a line transformer to the line output stage. Whilst the pump stage is connected electrically to the mains supply, the line output stage and the control circuits for the line output stage and for the pump stage are all electrically connected from the ac mains. 
In a television receiver, deflection circuits generate horizontal deflection signals at a line rate and vertical deflection signals at a field rate which are applied to respective horizontal and vertical output circuits. These output circuits in turn cause sawtooth currents to flow through the coils of the deflection yoke, thereby creating appropriate electromagnetic fields within the yoke to deflect electron beams across the display screen of a picture tube.
The previously described deflection circuits, as well as other receiver circuitry, may normally be powered by a regulated power supply which derives its output from horizontal rate energy generated by the horizontal deflection output circuit.
HIRUNDO was a brand name owned by Indesit.

THIS HERE IN COLLECTION IS AN ORIGINAL INDESIT ORBASSANO MADE.

INDESIT was originary from Orbassano Near TORINO In Italy and indeed the tv shown comes from there.

It was a very big industry conglomerate present in all European lands even In Norvay.

IT was fabricating domestic appliances like Washing machines (INDESIT K5) and dish washers and even fridges (almost lasting forever).

Here you can see an INDESIT Refrigerator from the same era of time like the TV above shown.

In the 70's they started producing tellyes and radios for cheap market but good products.



INDESIT has a very heavy controversed history which is made of high loss of work places for people, financial disasters, loss of market, closing of production location and finally a complete destruction of one of the bigger Italian industry on European level.

It was then brand name aquired by Merloni Elettrodomestici known as Ariston the reconverted to Indesit company......................

INDESIT INDUSTRY  was founded in 1953 in Turin with the denomination of Spirea, by three members: Armando Campioni, Adelchi Candellero and Filippo Gatta.
The society moved some years later to Rivalta of Turin, and another three times it changed denomination up to 1961 (SPIREA - INDEL - INDES - INDESIT), when it assumed the definitive social reason and the mark Indesit was born.

Indesit was producing "white" household electrical appliances like washing machines, refrigerators, freezers, dishwasher and kitchens,  television sets and shops fiscal recorders.

The company knew a swift productive and commercial development in the period of the economic boom, becoming the third one of the sector at national level .

 It conquered wide shares are in the national market which foreign countries of the household electrical appliances.

In the sixties and seventy, Indesit was counting quite eight productive installations, of which five to the North ( between Rivalta,  and Orbassano) and two in the South (Teverola and Carinaro (Council of Europe)), where they were used about 12.000 workers.

In the same period to the Indesit there was tried a system of televisional broadcasting to colours named ISA, whom the Torinese company proposed in 1972 to the RAI, but whom it was not accepted by the Italian Government, because not conformable to other European systems!!! .

There was acquired also the mark Hirundo, with which a line was proposed in the white sector (refrigerators, washing machines and other household electrical appliances), as well as apparatus in the brown sector, like radio to transistor branded Indesit-Hirundo. Such a mark today is not long time more used.

Indesit participated for 6 % in the Sèleco of Pordenone, to the epoch in which the control was held by Giovanni Mario Rossignolo, giving installations in disuse for the television sets manufacture. Zanussi and Rel were the greatest shareholders in Sèleco to that epoch.

In 1980, the Indesit went to crisis and was put into checked administration, of which it went out in 1984, when it was recapitalized for 74 milliard lire and there new members  entered. Still for the Torinese company the crisis continued and the recovery was not going; following this in 1985 it gave his electronic division to the Olivetti .

Much was the negotiations to find an industrial and financial partner, but the situation was so heavy to lead, in the same year, the company to the extraordinary administration, on the grounds of the law Prodi, and the Court of Turin appointed commissary the doctor Giacomo Zunino . For a long time now the work places had drastically decreased, and were reduced to a little more than 7.000 workers, the greatest part of which in case integration then unoccupied.

Even though it was commissioned, the company improved gradually the accounts, and in 1987 it was purchased to the auction at Merloni Elettrodomestici's already known for the mark Ariston and until then principal competitor in Italy of the Indesit itself. In the operation the of the Marche group invested quite 50 milliard lire in the acquisition of the society, and another 100 milliards it were provided for the reorganisation and the curing .
Indesit became the first mark of the company, and the factories were maintained only of None, Carinaro and Teverola.




On Thursday, February 24, 2005, a U.S. federal trademark registration was filed for HIRUNDO. This trademark is owned by Indesit Company S.P.A., 60044 Fabriano (AN).

NOTE:The USPTO has given the HIRUNDO trademark serial number of 78574071. The current federal status of this trademark filing is ABANDONED - NO STATEMENT OF USE FILED. The correspondent listed for HIRUNDO is HOWARD F MANDELBAUM AND ALAN H LEVINE of LEVIN..., 444 M..., NEW YORK, NY 10022 .
