Finally! A new toy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Post by Bill Cahill on Sat Jul 25, 2015 2:35 pm

I was antiqueing this morning, and, ran across this very near minty RCA Victor 16" rectangular portable all channel tv. It's in a white case. Comes with it's original roll cart, and, all antennas are in good shape. The push pull on-off switch is bad.
Interesting. Very rounded front corner where speaker is on right side. Vhf knobs on top, with vol. on, off, and, contrast.
UHF knob is on bottom RH side of case Both tuners show numbers in front.. VHF on top, UHF on bottom front.
I paid 42.00 approx. with tax for tv, and, stand.
I'll get pictures when I can, but, I put tv on work bench to check 'er out...
It's not click uhf tunning. Rather, a twist knob.

I have more information on tv. Chassis number KCS 137.
Sams 559-2

Needs polarized cord. The uhf tuner has a tube. This baby is late fifties, or, very early 60's.

Horizontal output, and, horizontal oscillator are octal. Damper is early 9 pin compactron. VHF tuner has a Nuvistor RF tube .
Cabinet is Black, and, white. I think it's actually eighteen inch.
It's had some repairs done.
Yoke is a little corroded, but, not falling apart.
Ninety degree picture tube.
Yoke wires are stiff with age. Plugs in.
I think this baby's worth fixing. Anybody got the sams for it??

I just bought a sams for it off ebay. The one they show has remote control, but, no uhf. Mine has uhf, but, no remote.
