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.How to use the site:

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 ! !

The ULTRAVOX (SEMAR) P12 is a portable 12 inches (31cm) B/W television with 16 programs manual rotatable program changer and VST electronic tuning semi automatic search.
The tunign system consist in a preset tuner adapted for selecting a desired one out of a plurality of preset channels, comprising: a memory for storing digital data concerning a plurality of channels to be preset, push-buttons/rotatable knob for addressing the memory for reading the digital data of a desired channel, a digital/analog converter for converting the read digital data into an analog signal, a manually operable variable voltage generator to obtain search mode AFC assisted, a write-in/channel select mode selector to store broadcasted transmission in desired program postion by rotatable program positions knob, a switch circuit responsive to the mode selector switchable between the digital/analog converter and the variable voltage generator, a voltage controlled oscillator responsive to the output of the switch circuit, a tuner employing the voltage controlled oscillator as a local oscillator, a comparator for comparing the outputs of the digital/analog converter and the variable voltage generator,
It has a Transistorized horizontal deflection circuits made up of a horizontal switching or output transistor, a diode, one or more capacitors and a deflection winding. The output transistor, operating as a switch, is driven by a horizontal rate square wave signal and conducts during a portion of the horizontal trace interval. A diode, connected in parallel with the transistor, conducts during the remainder of the trace interval. A retrace capacitor and the deflection yoke winding are coupled in parallel across the transistor-diode combination. Energy is transferred into and out of the deflection winding via the diode and output transistor during the trace interval and via the retrace capacitor during the retrace interval.
In some television receivers, the collector of the horizontal output transistor is coupled to the B+ power supply through the primary windings of the high voltage transformer.
Was one of the last ULTRAVOX Tv sets and last B/W of that type.
ULTRAVOX S.r.l. RADIO TELEVISIONE — Milano,
Founded in Milan in 1948 with the denomination Ultravox S.r.l of the brothers Sergio and Cino Stanghi, it was dedicated initially to the production of radiophonic apparatus.
In 1959 the production was moved in a factory to Caronno Pertusella, in province of Varese, where some years later, there was transferred also the seat of the society, which changed in Ultravox S.p.A.
Later it was specialised in the television sets production, sector in which the mark Ultravox became celebrated and conquered spaces in the market, with the carrying out of a special portable television set completely to transistor with tuner I expel incorporated FM, the model Hummingbird with protection from 6 thumbs of 1969, planned at the designer's Giovanni's Offredi.
In general the models Ultravox were distinguished compared to others, for the very original and futurist design, like the record player Cockchafer of 1970, created always from Offredi. Particular was the models of television sets built with incorporated record player.
In the eighties, the Lombard company, it had interested a crisis in the market of the electronics that put it in financial difficulties, and therefore in 1982 it was admitted in the list of the societies in field REL, public society for the curing of the enterprises of the electronic sector.
The REL entered into the capital of the Ultravox acquiring 27 % it, since in 1981, the company, which was counting 105 employees, recorded losses in the budget accumulated 1970, piling up to 926 million lire. The accounts improved in the following years since the turnover passed 2,4 milliards from 1982 to 36 in 1987, year in which after years of losses it reached a profit of budget.
In 1988 together with the REL there acquired the control of Emerson of Florence, company television sets producer. They were noticed the mark of the society and the factory of Siena in resort It isolates of Arbia, when the Ultravox was constituting Siena S.p. A. The Sienese factory was reactivated and there was guided the production of television sets and videotape recorders with the marks Ultravox and Emerson.
In the nineties, the company was swept away by a new crisis, which was heavier than that one that struck it on the antecedent decade.
In 1993 it was forced the factory of Caronno Pertusella to close and subsequently it went to checked administration. To go out of this situation, in the capital of the Ultravox there intervened the Bank Mountain of the Paschi of Siena, with a financing for 8,5 milliard lires.
The Sienese factory remained active only with his 200 employees, and the Ultravox was taken from the Holding company Galaxis, German financial society that was checking the Galaxis, company decoder producer for the reception of satellite TV. Initially the Tuscan society unwound the list of Italian distributor for the Galaxis, then later on it specialised in the production of the decoder. Under the new property the company grew again be in terms of turnover in which of sales, and in 1996, Ultravox became the principal decoder supplier for the television paytv Telepiù (died).
In 1998 the Sienese company changed social reason in Galaxis Produzione S.p. A., and it was producing television sets, videotape recorders and decoder for pay TV with the marks Ultravox and Galaxis.
In 2000 the Ultravox-Galaxis is forced to the closing for bankruptcy.

ULTRAVOX (SEMAR) P12 CHASSIS 2T/1 Preset tuner:
A preset tuner adapted for selecting a desired one out of a plurality of preset channels, comprising: a memory for storing digital data concerning a plurality of channels to be preset, push-buttons/rotatable knob for addressing the memory for reading the digital data of a desired channel, a digital/analog converter for converting the read digital data into an analog signal, a manually operable variable voltage generator to obtain search mode AFC assisted, a write-in/channel select mode selector, a switch circuit responsive to the mode selector switchable between the digital/analog converter and the variable voltage generator, a voltage controlled oscillator responsive to the output of the switch circuit, a tuner employing the voltage controlled oscillator as a local oscillator, a comparator for comparing the outputs of the digital/analog converter and the variable voltage generator, a counter to be reset responsive to the push-button search mode AFC and to be enabled responsive to the write-in mode output of the mode selector to make a counting operation as a function of the output of the comparator, the output of the counter being loaded as the digital data concerning a channel in the memory, as addressed, a reference oscillator, a frequency comparator for comparing the output of the reference oscillator and the intermediate frequency output of the tuner, a filter for filtering the frequency comparator output to provide a correction control signal to the digital/analog converter, the digital/analog converter being adapted to be corrected for deviation of the intermediate frequency of the tuner as a function of the correction control signal.
A typical conventional preset tuner such as employed in tv receivers and the like comprises a mechanical preset scheme. For example, such a preset tuner employing variable inductance devices as a tuning element is adapted to preset a plurality of channels by varying the inductance value of the variable inductance devices in association with the manual operation of a tuning knob. Another example of such a tuner using a variable capacitance device such as a variable capacitance diode as a tuning element employs variable resistors adjustable in association with the manual operation of a tuning knob for the purpose of a presetting operation.
Such preset tuners as described above as employing a variable inductance device, a variable capacitance device and the like require provision of the same number of variable inductance devices, variable resistors and the like as that of presetting channel selection switches, which makes the tuner large in size, with the result that such tuner is disadvantageous particularly in case where such tuner is employed in an indash type portable tv receiver, where the tuner is provided in a limited space.
Accordingly, a principal object of the present invention is to provide an improved preset tuner, wherein the data concerning the local oscillation frequencies corresponding to the respective preset channels is preloaded in a memory in a digital representation format.
Another object of the present invention is to provide an improved preset tuner, which is adapted for implementation by large scale integration integrated circuits.
A further object of the present invention is to provide an improved preset tuner, which is adapted for implementation in an electronic structure rather than mechanical structure
