Hello Fellow Members.

i have a lot of vintage Canadian tv service info and am willing to scan and email to you for free.
i find the canadian info is rare online so im offering this here and at the videokarma forum.
im glad i hung onto this data-almost got recycled over the years-ha
post me here if you need this-ill get it to you as my time allows.
glad to help the forums-have gotten some help in the past with my farnsworth 651p and glad to help back.
the more vintage tv's saved-the better.
cheers,
RonL

any chance of making this post a "sticky" admin? would save me some time.

RonL, could you forward anything you scan to us so we can publish it on our service data pages?

Thanks.

Hi Steve-ill look through my previously scanned info over the last few years and send it to you.

glad to spread this info around,

im thinking of trying photographing with my 5-10 meg digi cameras since this would go much faster than scanning.
if it works well, i will try to scan my entire collection as time allows.

Thanks for the interest.
RonL

ok members,
im gonna put some time in and figure out a rig to use my digicam to simply "click" each page. super fast scanning.if im correct,this should make archiving my data much quiker.just gotta find a bit of time. i have scanned data using a hand held digcam in the past and it did work good enough. i think my idea for a "rig" will be even better. i have already dug out the rarest canadian tv data i have that will be the 1st test and if it works-will be sent to ETF for achiving. thanks Steve Mcvoy for archiving this-a great service to the vintage tv efffort online.
admin-would still be awesome of you made this post a "sticky"-saves me some time...
RonL

Well, I know its a 1950s tv, I don't have any of those numbers, but I will ask the seller of the tv, but I do have a picture.

Hi Farlander.
i looked through my data and i have 1 schematic for a tube type viking tv. i can ask main electronics here if they still got the old schematics because they used to photocopy for $1 a page plus mailing charge-not sure if they will still do that.
i can also ask the vancouver main library if they gots. but im gonna need the chassis # mainly and perhaps the model # unfortunately. cant tell that by the picture. there is also the canadian rcc manuals that might have that data.
Main and vancouver library used to have that rcc data but not sure if they still do.
get me the #s and ill see what i can do.
RonL

I have been trying to obtain data on my 1953 (or maybe a 1952) Airline Television for years now. I worked on it in 90s and got lucky in obtaining a raster. The model number is 35WG-3077D.

I've been using data from a Airline portable 25WG3077A. (Sam's 206-2) They are similar but its frustrating when I run into something different.

It would be nice to have the correct data for the 35WG-3077D. Here's a pic of it in my living room.

I'm not really sure of the origin of this unit. I really appreciate you looking.

The unit still has a full raster (snow) but no sound and picture. I will eventually pull the chassis and do a complete re-cap. I'm busy now on two zenith portholes so I looking at sometime in the fall to start on the Airline.

Thanks again!!!!
