OUR FIRST TELEVISION SET

This is a 1952 photo of our family's first TV set. It is an RCA
console (model unknown) with AM/FM tuner 78 RPM record
changer under lid above the radio. My brother Bob (2 years old)
is at the controls. My other brother Tony and Sister Kathy are
in the foreground. I remember most, watching the Howdy Doody
show with Buffalo Bob Smith. I also remember the set as did
many of the sets of that vintage, had a pilot light mounted in the
bottom in the center. It seemed that once it blew out, no one ever
replaced it again. Sometimes, the bulb socket would pop out and
hang down to the floor from its wires.

Border Blaster Tube

HUGE TUBE FROM A
MEXICAN"BORDER BLASTER"


Mexican Border Blasters are radio stations, which broadcast on
the standard AM band, but are located in Mexico. These stations
run powers, much higher than the 50KW maximum allowable
power in the U.S. This is not a discussion of these stations, but
a display of a tube which was used in such a station. This
particular tube is displayed at Continental Electronics in Dallas
and explained by David Hershberger, Principal Engineer of
Continental Electronics. Also, check out David's
PHASITRON vacuum tube web page.
