Vintage Television - Television History from right to left:
Casio TV 200 / Casio TV 20 (both from ca. 1985) and Casio EV 510 (ca.1998)
At that moment, these little handheld TVs receive ARD television on VHF ch E9 from Langenberg transmitter. ARD is the 1st national TV station in Germany.
Distance Langenberg - Köln: ca. 85km
Unfortunately, Langenberg VHF ch E9 (ARD) will close down its analog transmissions up from 20.11.2007 after midnight. Terrestric transmissions from Langenberg continue broadcasting in digital DVB-T. So it was the last chance to pick up a stronger signal with these small handheld TVs. Weak analog signals of ARD, ZDF and SWR-RP still can be received from Koblenz- transmitter (ARD only on VHF ch E6) and Schnee-Eifel transmitter which are in the neighbour-federal state. These transmissions will be digitalized in 2008. FARE WELL ANALOG TV !!!
