@kfield: Totally cool, I want one for myself!

It's sitting on top of the 1929 wooden radio cabinet in my office playing an old episode of "The Outer Limits" as we speak :-)

They do? They never mentioned that (the little rascals) ... but to be fair I never asked :-)

Maybe not rabbit ears -- what do I need to pick up a digital signal broadcast from a nearby tower or satellite?

You can also get your TV repaired at Mock. They have a technician that works there.

Obvious question: Why do you need rabbit ears? Broadcast analog TV signals do not exist anymore. I too am a pack rat, and I probably have 6 or 8 sets of rabbit ears in the basement. When scrapping old TVs I always saved them because they were so easily broken. I also have a bin of various old knobs.

About 7 years ago I moved from a house to a Condo. I don't have a lot of storage so I threw it out. Along with the SS50 computer it was hooked up to.

I know what you mean about not wanting to throw away perfectly good electronics -- but you can store only so much -- and the thing is that you know you are never going to use it -- so all it's doing is taking up space in your home ... maybe it's time to "bite the bullet"?

Clive...I have a 27" Sony CRT that I bought new in 1993. I was going to use it until it dropped dead before getting a new digital TV but finally got tired of waiting. I bought a new 55" plasma last fall. Installing the plasma required some new audio and video furniture and I took the old audio rack on wheels to the Goodwill store for recycling. When I dropped it off I noticed that there were 3 (yes 3) PALLETS sitting there loaded with not so old CRT televisions waiting for a truck to take them away. Goodwill couldn't even give away CRT TVs so they were hauling them to the dump. My Sony CRT is now sitting in the guest bedroom gathering dust. Probably never use it again but like most pack rats, I hate to throw away perfectly functioning electronics.

## Wish I still had it now. The ignorance of youth.... Tell me about it :-) I remember when I was a young lad and my parents upgraded their "entertainment system" (radio, record deck, amplifier, etc.) and they gave me the old one for my bedroom. It was a massive piece of furniture -- must have been 6 feet long -- I was as happy as a clam (and that's pretty happy)

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
