    What the heck is a Television Booster? Amplifier?

    Same as steel wool on rabbit ears.

    Thanks Jean, I was wondering, but suspected the antenna was involved because of the 2 in 2 out on the back. I guess it’s an antenna booster and tuner. Might be good for a Philco Tv. collector.

    Hey,

    It might make a nice rf amp for someone into tube radios on the low FM band.
    Channel 2 was 54 MHz

    It probably goes all the way to 200 + MHz.

    Just a thought.

    Good eye, I didn’t spot the lower Red scale. Wouldn’t it have to go to 300 Mhz to cover the whole scale?

    Gary,

    The original channel 13 was at 216 MHz.
    The red scale is hard to read so I do not know if it has a channel 1 on it or not.
    Channel 1 did exist for a while.
    But we know where 48 Mhz went

    BTW , the 6J6 tubes are RF dual triodes that have been used in mixers at 600 MHz.
