Right back to the days of the first Baird mechanical televisions in the 20's, the Narrow Bandwidth Television Association is keeping the memories alive and keeping enthusiasts entertained with a fine mix of mechanical and electronic experimenting. Also please visit the NBTV forum.
I didn't even know about the NBTV Association, and hardly even about NBTV, until I received an email from Steve Anderson about his 1-inch CRT NBTV monitor. Then he told me about the NBTV Association. Finally following up with some email correspondence and ANOTHER article about another project of his, a 3-inch CRT NBTV monitor. From then on, it was downhill, and I couldn't help wanting to build some NBTV stuff of my own!
But for now, before I finish any building, please enjoy Steve's articles!
A Portable Battery Powered 1” CRT NBTV Monitor.
This battery powered NBTV 'scope uses the 1-inch CRT type DH3-91 (1CP1 equivalent).
PWM Grid-Drive Applied to a CRT display.
This NBTV uses a 3-inch DG7-32 CRT. A very nice tube! Low voltage and user-friendly.
Here's a nice site dedicated to mechanical TV: http://la-radiovision.fr/
