Vintage Radio and Television

Page under development

As well as preserving old wireless and televison sets, I have what may be a unique collection of TV aerials from the days of 405 line VHF television. These were large impressive structures which dominated the rooftops. On chimneys they could be 10 feet high and wide, and erected by one man and a ladder. Now no one would attempt such a feat without scaffolding for fear of the Health and Safety officer. They were probably rarely removed before they eventually disintegrated one piece at a time. Nevertheless, I have not heard of anyone being injured by a falling 10 foot metal rod from a TV aerial. Modern UHF TV aerials are very small in comparison.

Due to their size and the work to remove them intact, few have survived.
