Vintage Canadian tv service data (free)

Hello Fellow Members.

i have a lot of vintage Canadian tv service info and am willing to scan and email to you for free.
i find the canadian info is rare online so im offering this here and at the arf forum.
im glad i hung onto this data-almost got recycled over the years-ha
pm me if you need this-ill get it to you as my time allows.
glad to help the forums-have gotten some help in the past with my farnsworth 651p and glad to help back.
the more vintage tv's saved-the better.

I would like to say "Thank you" for your offer. You have supplied me with a couple of Canadian schematics now and they were greatly appreciated. I have noticed a couple times now that Canadian made sets that have a US counterpart are not always the same. They are very close but there are differences.

If I had a library like that, and a scanner I'd scan a couple a day until I had them all on my computer and then sell discs with the library on them...

i was contacted by steve from etf (on arf) to provide any scans i have done over the years!

i cant think of a better way of helping back and sharing this data.
hopefully the digicam works well and quik. if so, i can eventually scan my entire collection as time allows.

ok members,
im gonna put some time in and figure out a rig to use my digicam to simply "click" each page. super fast scanning.if im correct,this should make archiving my data much quiker.just gotta find a bit of time. i have scanned data using a hand held digcam in the past and it did work good enough. i think my idea for a "rig" will be even better. i have already dug out the rarest canadian tv data i have that will be the 1st test and if it works-will be sent to ETF for achiving. thanks Steve Mcvoy for archiving this-a great service to the vintage tv efffort online.
admin-Major thanks for making this post a "sticky"-saves me some time...still working on getting the admins at arf to do the same.
the more vintage electronics saved the better!
