Albert's Attic Gallery

One of the TV shops we worked for in the early 1970s was owned by a notorious skinflint. When all three channels were available on UHF it was possible to get rid of the old VHF aerials, but the skinflint was opposed to the idea of fitting a complete replacement UHF installation. Instead, he wanted us to simply change the array, re-using the mast, chimney fixing, and worst of all the cable. Since the cable used for VHF TV was horrible thin stuff it was extremely lossy at UHF. For this firm's customers, very snowy BBC-2 was the norm. I just couldn't stand this fiasco, and eventually we parted company.
