Items I have Owned or Repaired in the Past
HMV 1804 (1946). I sold this recently to make space and raise money for my pre-war Cossor Television.
I have fixed many of these in the past for a dealer. These are monochrome 9inch teles. They are usually white, the orange version is rare. I repaired the one in the photo about four years ago.
This was the main set in the house for many years until it became part of a swap for the SOBEL T107.
I restored this set for James Blackwood. I can't understand why PYE made a TRF set in 1951, ok other manufacturers made TRF sets at this time, but wasn't PYE supposed to be a more advanced brand ?
This set uses the same chassis as the TV22. I swapped this set together with my CVC8 for the SOBEL T107.
This radio was introduced in 1940, it used a mains energised speaker. I was given this set five years ago by one of my C&G 2240 Lecturers. I have now given it to a radio collecting friend to go towards the cost of cabinet work on my INVICTA T102 televsion.
A few years ago I sold my Hornby 'O' gauge collection, although I kept a little tank engine as a momento.
This was my oldest colour set. I swapped this set for the remains of a very rare GEC BT9121 pre-war TV and then swapped that for an ex-BBC standards converter.
