Narrow-bandwidth Television Association
NBTV Convention 2005 April 16th Loughborough
Despite a poor start the weather held out for a pleasant day at this years'
convention. It was particularly well attended especially with members coming
from as far away as Holland, Belgium and Germany. An impressive collection of
exhibits were to be found including many colour NBTV displays.
After climbing the steps through the entrance and walking down
we arrived in the cafe at the Convention venue.
Click on the doors to enter the rooms behind them
or stay here for a while to look around.
To our left we see Denis Asseman exhibiting a collection of fine replica equipment
that he has made during past year.
Denis here shows a Baird Televisor chassis, the Baird television receiver and a
Televisor in a tin plate cabinet. The general impression is that these are finer
than the original units produced by the Baird Company in the 1930's.
Left of Denis' exhibition we see a display by Jeremy Jago. The slim box that looks
like a camera is in reality a spot sensor, which looks against the mirror drum
and thus televises the surrounding.
||At the end of the day there is a meeting held here in the cafe.|
Just before the meeting started a fancy cake was brought in to celebrate
the 30th anniversary of the club.
Of course Doug Pitt got the task to cut the cake and all present members got a
piece to eat.
This was a good start of the meeting, which passed without any serious problems.
Reviews were given of the activities of the club and the normal reporting
was done by the treasurer.
Then everything was moved out and placed back in our cars.
Some more discussions, greetings and then: this was the Convention 2005.
