Schuco TV Lab

Postby Harry Dalek » Wed Sep 27, 2017 9:39 am

i was not really sure what this was till i did some searching looks like i missed out on these philips kits in Australia http://ee.old.no/library came across it and found it interesting ....i think from reading there were a few versions of the tv kits.
Love the kits looks like you got the crt tube one and could make a scope or tv by buying other kits to tack on.

The electromagnetic spectrum has no theoretical limit at either end. If all the mass/energy in the Universe is considered a 'limit', then that would be the only real theoretical limit to the maximum frequency attainable.

Although I had one of those electronics construction kits (complete with the springy connectors) as a child back in the 1960s, the circuits were rather more basic - just simple oscillators, amplifiers and morse-code buzzers etc. Building a TV this way sounds somewhat daunting - even fifty or so years later!

Yes, I recall those Philip's boxes, one may still be in my mother's attic in the UK - complete with those rather unique springy connectors.

The circuits were simple, usually consisting of only two transistors (Gernamium AF116 & AC126) but you could build up an earpiece AM radio and lots of other things. A good introduction to be sure. Required two of those now (I guess) obsolescent 4.5v flat-pack batteries. Exide (UK) made them, I think they were called FP4. Local gas station stocked them, 2/6 rings a bell (Old UK money, 12.5p in today's parlace). I still can just remember the farthing.

Surprisingly, the "flat-pack" 4½V batteries are still around in the UK, though one probably needs to shop around a bit. It may, however, be better just to buy a couple of holders for three AA cells.
