Shortwave Magazine Government Surplus Advertisements from 1948
| The following advertisements appeared in 1948. They all offer surplus equipment or components to the Radio Constructor,Experimentor or Radar indicator Units for conversion to televisions.|
Remember there was only one TV channel with very restricted coverage. Most of the advertisments contain the original prices. The conversion rate today is about £16 to each old pound.
Some of the units that appear in the advertisments are: BC312,BC342,BC348,R208,R1224A,Power Supply unit Type 5,TR3510,BC221,Wavemeter Class D,No 3 Mk11,3170Radar rx,Indicator 162C,Amplifiers 3562 127,R1481,R1116a etc.
The last 3 pages are related to the Hambander from Radiovision of Leicester. The first page is the original advertisment and the remaining two pages are a review from the Shortwave magazine.
Over the past few years these sets have appeared on Ebay.
