Look at my wonderful tubes!

I found this promotional picture in an old NAB conference technical papers book dating to 1969:

So here we see an obviously qualified and appropriately dressed technician gesturing to all the components she is about to install in the transmitter behind her. I wish I worked there.  No, wait, I wish I had that transmitter and perhaps this fetching young woman would come and work at my station.  Well, hell, I don’t need a TV transmitter, just the woman.


I wonder how many of these rigs RCA sold before the broadcast division went out of business.

By way of reference, the RCA TT-30FL is a VHF television transmitter, 30 KW peak visual power, 7.5 KW peak audio power, air-cooled.

I always liked that show. “As god is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!”

I tried to embed “Alice’s Restaurant” but youtube wouldn’t let me, so here is the link, if you haven’t heard it this year and are feeling so inclined.
