Television Experience

1966 - The first TV that Linda and I owned when we were married was a broken black and white television set that I was given.  It hummed when turned on, but the picture tube did not light up.  I traced the voltages in it and found a broken wire on the power supply resistor and soldered it back in place.  Suddenly, the picture tube lighted up, and we were watching a football game in black and white.  That old set served us well.

1968 - We decided we wanted a color TV so I built a 21" color TV from a Heathkit that I ordered.  This was our TV for many years.

I have always enjoyed knowing the technical side of devices and TV's are no exception.  I want to know how they work and study them to understand their technology.

Statement about my personal ethical standards:

Linda and I are professed Christians, and we believe in and try to live the "Golden Rule"

I am a Rotarian, and I believe that the Four-WayTest of Rotary is the correct way to conduct business:

  • Is it the truth?

  • Is it fair to all concerned?

  • Will it build good will and better friendships?

  • Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
