I just acquired A TV I have never seen or heard of, It has to be a monitor because it has no channel selector, It is A LING-TV, It has what look like ham radio connections on the back, and was made by Miratel Inc of Milwaukie. Has any one seen one of these...

I have pictures but I can never figure out hoe to post to this site

You can use Windows 'Paint' to crop and resize images. Resize to 800 pixels or less, that will usually meet the 256k pic size limit too.
If it's still to big, resize a bit smaller, like 700 pixels x ?? (the other number will track to keep dimensions correct)
And please rotate the image upright while your at it :)
My old broken neck appreciates that

PL259/UHF connectors (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UHF_connector) were the broadcast and industrial video interconnect standard until the 70's-80's when BNC took over. All my tube era video monitors (I have 4...Where did they come from!?) have PL259 video jacks, as do some of my early VTRs/VCRs.

I'd love to see pictures of what you have.

I had a couple of 12" B & W monitors at work, had UHF connectors. Used the with color video I/O cards on on the red channel. Very versatile in the early 90's, by 2000, obsolete. Sorry, can't remember the name brand...

If you cant find mates. Probably can swap out those jacks out for BNC or RCA jacks.I've done it years ago. I remember the 1970's VTRs and monitors use UHF jacks like the ones on CB radios.Also some models used BNC jacks for video.Most of the audio jacks were RCA.They also use the 8 pin cables too.

First thing I got with those jacks was an EIAJ VTR...To test it I bought a couple of mating UHF connectors at a Radio Shack (back when they were local), cut a spare RCA cable at center and soldered a UHF connector onto either side of the cut. Later after visiting hamfests I got some UHF to BNC/F/RCA that I combined in series with other adapters and cables as needed.

In a pinch, you can stuff the right sized nail/screw into the UHF female hole, and use clip leads to hook it to a male RCA cable end.
