Richtige Fernseher haben Röhren!

In Brief: On this site you will find pictures and information about some of the electronic, electrical and electrotechnical Obsolete 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 ! !

The CONIC TV-FM/AM RADIO TR-7200  is A Hand Portable B/W Telly with incorporated radio receiver.

It has manual tuning for Both VHF and UHF channels and for FM and AM radio frequency and incorporated antenna for both features..

The CONIC TV-FM/AM RADIO TR-7200 is a television receiver which is capable of receiving not only television signals, but also broadcast FM /AM radio signals. In the United States, the broadcast FM band occupies a band of frequencies extending from approximately 88 MHz to approximately 108 MHz. This band of frequencies lies between the frequencies allocated for broadcast television channel 6 and television cable channel 98. Modern intercarrier sound-type television receivers having the capability to receive broadcast FM signals are known from the prior art. However, in these known arrangements, their respective manufacturers added a separate FM radio having its own tuner. This may have been done because television tuners commonly include tuned circuits (FM traps) for trapping out FM signals which may otherwise interfere with television signal reception. A typical FM trap for a television receiver is a tuned circuit exhibiting an amplitude vs. frequency characteristic having a single deep notch substantially centered on the FM band of frequencies, and sufficiently wide to attenuate FM signals throughout the FM band of frequencies. Not surprisingly, removing the FM trap degrades the performance of the receiver when tuning television signals.

 Such receivers are provided with a tuner for selecting the different emitter frequencies of the radio and television station signals. These antenna signals fed to the tuner are transformed in the tuner by mixing with an oscillator frequency to an intermediate frequency. The intermediate frequency signals taken from the tuner are amplified in a following intermediate frequency amplifier. A demodulator following to the intermediate frequency amplifier demodulates the high frequency modulated signal to an audio frequency sound signal or respectively to a video frequency picture signal, which is fed to the final stages for reproduction in a loudspeaker or respectively on the screen of a television set. The individual electronic components such as tuner, intermediate frequency amplifier and demodulator have been conventionally disposed in separate component parts and were connected to each other via lines.

It has a typical conventional indicator driving device for a television receiver incorporating a radio receiver includes a TV channel selecting pulley, a radio frequency selecting pulley, two drums spaced from each other and between which is stretched a frequency indicator sheet, a drive shaft and a manipulating knob fixed to the drive shaft. The torque imparted to the drive shaft is transmitted from the latter to the above-mentioned two pulleys and two drums through wires thereby driving the indicator. Thus, the conventional indicator driving device has a complicated structure because of the use of the frequency indicator sheet which inevitably necessitates two drums. In addition, the conventional indicator driving device has a drawback in that the matching between the tuner of the radio receiver and the frequency indicator sheet is rather difficult to obtain.

It's very light weight compared to others types.

It can powered from mains and battery pack fitted on the floor box under the telly itself.

It seems the first model maketed from Brand name CONIC in 1979-1980, see descriptions below.

Conic Electronic Industries

New delhi, Delhi, India

Telecommunication Products - Manufacturer, Export / Import,
Proprietorship Firm Since 1980

In 1977, Mr. Maini realized the growing potential of the electronics industry in India and he started a small electronic products manufacturing firm called CONIC ELECTRONIC INDUSTRIES.

Through his hard-work and strong vision, he soon transformed this small firm into one of the most successful brand names making a variety of audio and video products. Today, his innovative ideas have enabled Conic achieve the First mover advantage in many of its products and has helped keeping the company ahead of the market at all times.

With the support of his wife Mrs. Preeti Maini, he has come out to be a true leader in all spheres of life. He enabled Conic to become one of the best professionally managed companies. The electronic industries federation recognized his qualities as a leader and rewarded him with the prestigious "SPIRIT OF INDIA" award.


(NOTE: I know they were even manufactures of electronic calculators and hand electronic games because I have some of these lying around here in my stuff.)

The brand seems now DEFUNCT.
