MARCONI 706 5 INCH TV/WIRELESS, 1939

Although appearing complete and to show how the TV would look in 1939, the tube is a later radar type and the scan coils are missing. This was one of Marconi's first Televisions.

John Ambrose collection

Your comments:

  • These small Television/Radio receivers were part of the second generation of EMI sets. I don't think there is any reference to them as early as 1937. They appear to have their debut at the 1938 Olympia show. Wireless World reviewed them in September 1938.
