This is a vintage 12 inch PYE 12F-1 B&W TV set from 1969. I picked up this set during my visit to John's place in the Blue Mountains, he is a collector of vintage electronics and has probably the biggest collection of old TV sets in Australia!!! Anyways he was giving away a portion of his gear to me to make way for space and when I saw this TV in his back shed and said "Hey now that's a nice looking set" he said I can have it and told me it works good. And indeed it does!!! I fired it up when I got home and it works great making excellent pictures!!! I have given it a little bit of a clean up and have added a RF antenna socket adapter to the two screw terminals that were used in the olden days to add external antennas and have connected a composite to RF converter so I can plug my DVD player into the TV and can now plug any AV source into the TV via the converter and get a nice picture on the set. For a bit of fun I have played some old B&W Aussie TV footage from the pre 1975 B&W era such as Graham Kennedy's In Melbourne Tonight and it all looks really good viewed on this B&W set! I also tested some of my cameras on this TV most notably the Sony AVC-3250CE vidicon tube B&W camera and it looks brilliant viewed on this TV!!! Anyways I am going to use this TV set whenever I want to watch a classic B&W Aussie TV classics such as Matlock Police, Division 4, Aunty Jack, IMT etc... Here below is a YouTube video of this TV in action followed by quite a number of pics.
