    Junk television salvage

    In a few months every television set in the US will become worthless unless a converter is added to it. It's anticipated this will result in possibly millions of aging sets being discarded and replaced by new ones. This sounds like a windfall for those who salvage electronic parts.

    only reason you would need to get a box is if you still have rabbit ears or a tall antenae. tvs have been cable ready for about a decade now, most of them burn out before 10 years are up.

    Consider this little factoid.
    There are currently more Stradivarius violins left in the world, than there are working World War II era television sets.
    (This factoid brought to you by the media museum at City TV here in Toronto)
    Some day some of these lost tube sets will be cried after by refurbishers and antique guys.

    sure because almost no one had tv during ww2.whuch ended in 1945.there was nothing to watch .only 7000 tv sets were sold in 1946.which was commercial tv debut year.anything ww2 era would be pre commercial tv and experimental only.
