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 ! !

59cm (23in) direct viewing television tube with metal backed screen.
This tube is electrically identical to the A59~11W.

Deflection 110 deg
Focusing Electrostatic

Light transmission (approx.) 50 %
Maximum overall length 36.7 cm

 This data should be read in conjunction with GENERAL OPERATIONAL

The limits of heater voltage and current are contained in 'General Operational

Note - (applies to series operation only). The surge heater voltage must
not exceed 9 .5V r.rn.s . when the supply is switched on. A current limiting
device may be necessary in the circuit, to ensure that this voltage is not

The range of focus voltages shown in 'OPERATING CONDITIONS' results
in optimum overall focus at a beam current of 250M.

The deflection coils should be designed so that their internal contour is
in accordance with J.E.D.E.C. gauge 126, and should provide a pull-
back of 4mm on a nominal tube.

This tube has an external conductive coating M, which must be earthed,
and the capacitance of this to the final anode is used to provide smoothing
for the e.h.t. supply. The tube marking and warning labels are on the
side of the cone opposite the final anode connector and this side should
not be used for making contact to the external conductive coating.


See note under this heading in 'General Operational Recommendations —
Cathode Ray Tubes' .

Centring magnet field intensity 0 to 10 Ga

Maximum distance of centre of
centring field from reference line 57 mm

Adjustment of the centring magnet should not be such that a general
reduction in brightness of the raster occurs.


J.E.D.E.C. 126. For details see ‘General Operational Recommenda-
tions — Cathode Ray Tubes' .



The tube socket should not be rigldly mounted but should have flexible
leads and be allowed to move freely. The bottom circumference of the
base shell will fall within a circle of 40mm diameter which is centred
upon the perpendicular from the centre of the face.

This tube is fitted with a pin protector in order to avoid damage to the
glass base due to bending of the base pins whilst handling the tube.

It is advisableto keep this pin protector on the base until it can be replaced
by the socket after installation of the tube in any equipment.

1. Adequate precautions should be taken to ensure that the receiver is
protected from damage which may be caused by a possible high voltage
flashover within the cathode ray tube .

2. Maximum pulse duration 22% of one cycle with a maximum of 1.5ms.

3. The d.c. value of bias must not be such as to allow the grid to become
positive with respect to the cathode, except during the period immediately
after switching the receiver on or off when it may be allowed to rise to

It is advisable to limit the positive excursion of the video signal to +5V(pk)
